I often connect my faith with my passion to live a sustainable lifestyle.  The more I learn about diversity and multi faith relationships, the more I recognize how similar we are.  This is true about living sustainably.  Whatever we throw out our back door will land in someone else's front door.  


 People of all religions around the world are coming together to help the Earth.  Whether you are Catholic, Muslim, Jewish, First Nation, Hindu, or any other faith, these promise suggestions apply to all humans who want to heal the place we all call home. If you are Catholic, make a Lenten promise.  If you are Muslim, incorporate an eco goal during Ramadan. If you are not an actively religious person, try one promise for 18 days and then once you have mastered it, move on to another way to help heal the Earth. 

St. Ignatius of Loyola Old Growth Forest

The images above were taken at St. Ignatius of Loyola in Guelph, Ontario.  I have found a great deal of spiritual connection to this land because it has allowed me to connect with my spiritual path on a land dedicated to nature.  Run by the Jesuit Priests, people of all faiths are welcome to work the land and grow what they wish.  I have added a link to their website below.  If you find spirituality linked to ecology, I highly recommend visiting this serene setting.

Organic Farming on St. Ignatius Grounds

Ignatius Farm sells their produce at markets around Southern Ontario, including Milton.  Residents of Guelph can rent plots of land to grow their own produce, or purchase an agriculture share (CSA) where community members will grow food for you and you can collect the harvest at different times of the year.

Faith and the Common Good Network

"Faith & the Common Good (FCG) is a national, interfaith network (charity registration # 82827 6121 RR0001) founded in 2000 on the belief that our diverse faith congregations and spiritual communities can be powerful role models for the common good. Its network is composed of people of faith, hope, and spirit who, despite our differences in theology, dress and culture, share a calling to protect our ecosystem and a passion for community service."
