Stewards and users of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area registered with the Saskatoon Meewasin & Affinity Credit Union Clean-Up Campaign. This is an amazing initiative undertaken by the Meewasin Valley Authority and the Affinity Credit Union, indeed. This was a great way for Saskatoon residents to “spring into action”, and we hope to keep the momentum going into summer.
The Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area Clean Up Event is scheduled July 9 within “Corporate Cleanup Week: July 8 – 15″ It is hoped that many businesses and employees will participate in the corporate clean up week, and twahamwe, “pull together.” Twahamwe is the motto from Richard St. Barbe Baker’s International “Men of the Trees” organization.
If there are teachers, home educaters, youth group leaders who wish to interact with students there is an amazing school information package available.
The information package put together on the Meewasin & Affinity Credit Union Clean-Up Campaign web page is phenomenal, and provides a wide variety of environmental and ecologically friendly links and information.
There is also a package for any volunteers attending the Richard St. Barbe Baker Clean up on Saturday July 9, 2016 have any questions about Safe Needle handling, provided at the Meewasin & Affinity Credit Union Clean-Up Campaign. Additionally, arrangements have been made with the Saskatoon Health Region to have someone attend the Richard St. Barbe Baker Clean Up specifically to address this issue. There were no needles found during the clean up last year, 2015 in the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area.
To quote Richard St. Barbe Baker, ” The fate of an individual or a nation will always be determined by the degree of his or its harmony with the forces and laws of Nature and the universe. Man is not alone in the universe but is surrounded by sources of power, harmony and knowledge. The fullness of life depends upon man’s harmony with the totality of the natural cosmic laws. Our individual evolution is a job that has to be carried on day by day by each individual himself. It is a livelong task.”
