As you’ll see from this presentations, meetings apply for QEW Mini-Grants to help fund Earthcare projects of all sorts, from land and water restoration to energy conservation to drip irrigation systems, but they also use the funds to impact their footprint through actions like installing low-flush toilets, getting energy-efficient appliances, and a bike-lending program. You can use your funds to help spread the word, as well, by developing and hosting events, workshops, or a symposium, as Friends this year did.
