Genesis Group

St. John’s Episcopal Church

The Genesis Group started the conversation about sustainability in our church, homes and community by giving away free cfls in January of 2007. Since then St. John’s has switched to cfls and Fair Trade coffee and tea, changed to cloth napkins and biodgradable tableware, invested in Eco-Palms for Palm Sunday, partnered with two local farms to bring organic produce and humanely raised meats to our community as a host drop site, installed a tankless water heater and many other small projects to make a difference.
