earth care central

We invite you to join us in 2023 as we work together to:

  • Walk more gently on God's creation by learning ways to lower our carbon footprint
  • Restore God's creation
  • Grow and share with the food insecure in our community, nutrient dense, delicious produce from our Giving Gardens

We highlight several ways we engage missionally in caring for creation in the passages below. 

Our monthly Mission and Earth Care Newsletter is also a great way to stay current on missional and earth care opportunities with CENTRALongmont.  To see the most recent issue or to review past issues of our newsletter, please enjoy the Mission and Earth Care News archive. There are many ways to get connected through your love for God's creation.  Join Us!  

We are proud to be a certified Earth Care Congregation with the PC(USA).  Learn more about what that means in our About section.

CENTRALongmont Giving gardens

Our giving gardens are used to help fight hunger in our community in conjunction with caring for the Earth.  According to the organization Feeding America, fresh fruits and vegetables are one of the most requested food items at food banks that are often in short supply. According to Community Food Share, 1 in 8 of our neighbors in Boulder and Broomfield Counties struggles with hunger — including more than 9,000 children.

We have joined this fight to end hunger in our community by creating both a new congregational giving garden at a member's property, as well as by encouraging a home giving garden army to aid us in this effort.  

We have donated over 1,800 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to the OUR Center and The Round Pantry since we started the garden in 2021.  We look forward to next year's growing season.  Join us by helping in the congregational garden or by growing an extra row or two at your home garden to share with the food insecure in our community.

protecting habitats, restoring the land

Join us as we work to restore God's creation with our new mission partner, Wildlands Restoration Volunteers.  WRV provides opportunities for people to come together, learn about their natural environment, and take direct action to restore and care for the land.  

cleaning up our community and greenway

We love to join our community in helping keep Longmont beautiful.  We participate in Longmont's annual Green Up Clean up event to clean-up our streets, alleys, parks and our greenways along the St. Vrain.  Each and every one of us deserves to live in a community environment that is healthy, clean and beautiful, and we all have a role in achieving this goal.  Clearing trash and debris from our rivers benefits wildlife, promotes clean water, and beautifies our environment.
