Did you know it takes 40-50 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup?

Exciting things we've recently done:
Just Eat It: A food waste story
North American households waste 15-20% of all the food they buy. A crowd watched this movie follow a couple from Vancouver who take a six-month challenge to survive only on discarded food.
This great event was co-sponsored by: Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC), Temple Beth Emeth (TBE), Interfaith Council for Peac and Justice (ICPJ), 1st Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor - Mindful Eating Team.
Meet Your Farmer: Dyer Family Organic Farm
On Sunday, January 15, Dick Dyer talked to a nice crowd about how the Dyer Family Organic Farm (aka Dick's 'Pretty Good!' Garlic) was started by Dick and Diana Dyer in 2009. He discussed the different varieties of garlic they grow, how being organic is so important, and about their bee hives and the honey they sell.

The Ethical Eating Statement of Conscience (SOC) was adopted by our congregation and the national UUA at the spring General Assembly. The UUAA's Ethical Eating Team (EET) had served its original purpose of learning and exploring with the congregation what ethical ways of eating were in order to help write the SOC (click here to see what we did).
The EET's coordinators, Colleen Crawley and Cathy Muha, met with representatives of the well-established Locavore group: Guala Lauzzanna, Connie McGuire , Eileen Wright, Merrill Crockett and decided to join together.
