At our AGM last March, participants created this collaborative poem:

Early Spring, Woodhaven


beneath my feet

the ground thaws

wakes from its slumber

while the sounds of forest

mix with sounds of city

California quail, Toyota

Corolla, call and

response, engine light

flickers, and a hawk

scatters all the squawking birds

into the chilly woods


(collaborative poem made at Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre, March 4 2023)

The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.
