what we do here

Climate Dots in Poatina today

In Poatina today we were part of a world wide campaign to “connect the dots” on the weird weather around the world, which many believe is caused by climate change.  
We gathered to collect autumn leaves for composting – to build resources for local food production, sequester carbon, and stand in solidarity with others around the world who have been affected by climate change. The photo features an autumn leaves ‘dot’ surrounded by members of the Poatina Village community (including the new Sustainability Group and Trinity College students and staff) with the Great Western Tiers as a backdrop. The Great Western Tiers is the home of the threatened Cider Gum (Eucalyptus gunnii), with Climate Change one of the major factors in its decline.

There are lots of events to connect the dots around the world on 5/5/2012 – find an event near you http://www.climatedots.org/
