Creation Care at UCH
The United Church of Hinesburg is committed to sound environmental stewardship and education.
Beekeeping - The church currently maintains two beehives that help to pollinate local flowers, vegetable gardens, fruit trees and crops. Extra honey from these hives are often used as gifts.
Nature Camps - Young people grades 1-5 engage different aspects of environmental stewardship from conservation to composting during week long evening camps at the church.
Reducing our Carbon Footprint - Guided by a recent energy audit, we have insulated our three buildings, switched to energy efficient appliances, updated windows and installed two solar trackers.
Celebrating Mother Nature - We are fortunate to live so close to the land and participate in the wide range of Vermont seasons. Through May Poles and Plant Sales, and Harvest Festivals and Apple Picking, we celebrate all that joy nature brings to our lives.
