Are you concerned about the impact climate change has on our community and on our planet?  Want to take part in a local action that shows your concern, connects with others and is fun at the same time?

 

Then come to the Moving Planet Bike 'n Hike on Sunday September 25.  The community ride/walk will begin at Hodge Podge Community Garden, North Street in Bridgewater at 1 p.m. After a 40 minute outing on the Centennial Trail, participants will return to the garden, for the "Great Garlic Giveaway."  The giveaway will share the harvest of last year's 350 event, the planting of garlic, as a symbol of reducing our reliance on imported food.  Photos of the event will be sent to local politicians as a demonstration of the need for positive action.

 

 The action is part of  350.org (www.350.org)  a global movement aimed at solving the climate crisis. The weekend of September 24 and 25, thousands of people in more than 147 countries will put their demands for climate action into motionundefinedmarching, biking, skatingundefinedcalling for the world to go beyond fossil fuels.

Those not able to attend the Bridgewater event are encouraged to organize their own "Moving Planet"activity, however small, in their own community and send in photos of their event. They will then be posted to South Shore 350 webpage  (www.350.org/southshore350.)
