For over 20 years, Earth Ministry has been the statewide leader in engaging the religious community in environmental stewardship and advocacy.

Through education, outreach, organizing, and training, Earth Ministry builds a powerful moral constituency of people of faith taking action for the health of our communities and the environment.
