Eco-Curriculum Review for the title
Earthcare for Friends

This is the general report format.

Eco-Justice Ministries has seen this resource, but a full review is still pending.
The information here is from our staff's initial examination of the materials.

Short Description:   This study guide is designed to help Friends understand specific ways that human activities have been despoiling the earth, God´s creation, and how this damage is intensified by today´s materialistic culture; and how Earthcare is a natural expression of the historic Quaker testimonies of peace, equality, justice, simplicity, and integrity
