Past Events

Team EARTH has been active this year (2010-11) with a variety of activities.  We try to choose activities that help get our message of sustainability out to the public.  We also have chosen activities that put us in contact with nature.  Team EARTH students believe those people most acquainted with the environment and local ecosystems will invest the most effort to save them from destruction.  People rarely fight for something they do not know or understand.

SERVICE ON CAMPUS PROJECTS COMMUNITY TOURS    HIKES

To understand the concept of sustainability, people must be knowledgeable about where they get their food, where their energy comes from, where their water comes from, and where their wastes go.  Moving toward sustainability would mean consuming more locally produced goods, using water more efficiently, and going easy on the waste outputs.  It takes a great deal of energy to meet those needs.

That was easy for Santiago students to see when they toured Corona's city water treatment, water reclamation, and desalination facilities.  Over 25% of California's energy goes into moving and treating water for its inhabitants that mostly live in water poor areas. Water is big business in Southern California.  See a photo tour of Corona's water reclamation facilities.


Corona's Farmers' Market options.  She wrote about the benefits of growing and buying locally produced fruits and vegetables.  See how you could do that and also discover some great recipes for incorporating more plant food into your diet deliciously!
