Environmental stewardship.

Environmental stewardship refers to responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices. Aldo Leopold (1887–1949) championed environmental stewardship based on a land ethic "dealing with man's relation to land and to the animals and plants which grow upon it.

Different types of environmental stewards

There are 3 types of environmental stewards: doers, donors, and practitioners. Doers go out and help the cause by taking action. For example, the doers in an oil spill would be the volunteers that go along the beach and help clean up the oil from the beaches. A donor is the person that financially helps the cause. They can do anything from donating their money, to having galas or other fundraisers. They are typically governmental agencies. Lastly there are practitioners. They work on a day-to-day basis to steer governmental agencies, scientists, stakeholder groups, or any other group toward a stewardship outcome. Together these 3 groups make up environmental stewards and with the help keep the ecosystem running healthily. Anybody can be an environmental steward by being aware and knowledgeable of the world around them and making sure they do as little as possible to negatively impact our world. Without these groups it would be hard to get any sort of sustainability in our increasingly technology, pollution, industrial based world.

WHY

Food Justice -n – a community’s ownership of  fresh, nutritious, affordable, culturally appropriate, and locally grown food.

Adopt-A-Farmbox is a solution-based initiative. Our goal is to empower people through food. We use farm boxes to create opportunities for people to reconnect with food, particularly people in communities with limited access to fresh foods.  Many communities in New York City are starving for wider and healthier food options beyond the meager selections available at fast-food chains and corner stores that permeate them. A recent study estimates that approximately three million New Yorkers live in neighborhoods with limited access to fresh foods leaving these residents vulnerable to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. The best way to help families and communities to break the cycle of diabetes and obesity is to expose them to healthier food options and to engage them in the process from seed to fork. It creates a sense of pride and ownership while de-mystifying the concept of healthy, wholesome food.

  • Bringing Much-Needed Reality to Extreme Weather Claims
    For decades, headlines around the world have claimed that various extreme weather events—hurricanes, typhoons, floods, droughts, heat waves, wildfires, even cold snaps—are driven by global warming. Similar claims have persisted in the record-breaking cold afflicting North America this winter. Such claims become rationale for expensive policies to mitigate the warming by cutting CO2 emissions, achievable […]
  • The Great Winter of 2017-2018 and the Hypocrisy of Climate Alarmists
    As record lows gripped many parts of the U.S. and Canada, the global warming elitists scrambled to announce to the world that climate change was the driving force behind the freezing weather. Inevitably, their claims have exposed the hypocrisy of the global warming cult that has instilled fear among the public. Temperatures in many parts of the […]
  • President’s Tweet Trumps Gore’s on Climate Change
    In Florida over the holidays, President Trump tweeted, “In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!” Al Gore—the leading global […]
  • None so blind as them that will not see
    It seems nothing short of miraculous how global warming alarmists can always come up with ways to stick with their hypothesis in the face of so much contrary evidence. Case in point: The BBC ran a story on Russia that claimed that reindeer populations across northern Russia were “in steep decline because of climate change.” […]
  • Larry Bell takes NY Times reporter to the woodshed for taking President Trump to the woodshed
    Kendra Pierre-Louis will rue the day when she took it on herself to teach President Donald Trump the difference between climate and weather. So will the New York Times, the newspaper in which she did it. Why? Because she was right. And that meant she and the Times were wrong. Larry Bell took her to the woodshed […]
