GREEN Organizing Action TEAM (GOAT)

The GREEN Organizing Action TEAM (GOAT) seeks to raise the level of concern for sustainability and environmental justice throughout the life of Homewood Friends Meeting and to witness this concern in the Meeting and the larger community.  GOAT organizes educational, recreational, advocacy, and other activities that move the Meeting and individuals toward adopting more sustainable practices and actions in our everyday lives and in the world.
