Olivewood Cemetery Clean-up @ Olivewood Cemetery
Jan 6 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Olivewood Cemetery Clean-up @ Olivewood Cemetery | Houston | Texas | United States

Olivewood Cemetery Clean-up

Olivewood is located next to White Oak Bayou, and is therefore surrounded by lush flora. It only takes about a week in the summer for the cemetery to be overrun with vegetation. Beyond routine mowing and weeding, the Descendants of Olivewood have begun projects to beautify individual plots, restoring the old landscaping that has changed with time. If you have a knack for clearing brush and landscaping areas that have been lost to time, you would certainly do well to join us on the first or third Saturday of the month. Check the events calendar to stay informed about upcoming events. We welcome individuals and groups for sponsored clean up days, or to join us for a general clean-up day.
Please visit their website for more information about the cemetery and cleanup effort.

An Introduction to DRAWDOWN and What You Can Do About It @ First Unitarian Universalist Church
Jan 14 @ 1:00 pm
An Introduction to DRAWDOWN and What You Can Do About It @ First Unitarian Universalist Church | Houston | Texas | United States

Our first goal in reversing global warming is drawdown. This is the point where the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere levels off and begins to decline. If we get moving, we could reach drawdown by 2050.  At this event co-sponsored by Green Building Resource Center and Houston Climate Protection Alliance, the Climate Action Team of First Unitarian Universalist Church will summarize the book, Drawdown, then break into groups to focus on particular solutions:  organic farming and land use, family planning, refrigerant management, or your favorite action issue.
