UUWF Luncheon ~ Saturday, May 19 at UU Santa Fe

UUWFElizRobecheck 05.18“Treating the Natural World as Wise Companion”
with Elizabeth Robecheck
Generally, we attend to the decades long environmental movement in a myriad of shared ways. Changing light bulbs, turning things off, decreasing water usage, increasing gas mileage, recycling/reusing, using safe/beneficial products and other practices have become second nature. A more uniquely personal environmental movement is taking root in our time, the essence of which is our relationship with the natural world as a wise elder companion. Benefits from each of us finding our way to co-create with nature are both personal and collective.
 
Our speaker, Elizabeth Robecheck, will discuss how landscapes and gardens have blossomed from the weaving together of the stories of people and the stories of place. As landscape architect and garden artist, she will share stories, inspiration and wisdom gleaned from more than 40 years of working with individuals and groups to express their unique forms of open-heartedness through design on the land. According to Elizabeth, “We can almost hear mother Earth's sigh of relief!”
 
Elizabeth has a Master of Landscape Architecture degree  and is inspired in her landscape work by a theater background. Her presentation will be the perfect end to our year’s programming and to the beginning of our own spring plantings!

Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation

The Santa Fe Unitarian Universalist Women’s Federation (UUWF) is affiliated with the national UUWF organization that advances justice for women and promotes their spiritual growth. UUWF is an independent non-profit, 501 (c) (3) associate member organization of the Unitarian Universalist Association. The Santa Fe chapter is a part of this national organization and an affiliate organization of the Unitarian Universalist Santa Fe (UUSF).

Our UUWF in Santa Fe is one of the largest and most active groups in the country. Six of our members have received the Clara Barton award from UUWF national. We have over 60 members, with many others being on our mailing list. Members do not have to be members of UU Santa Fe. UUWF membership is $25 a year, paid in the fall.

We have nine luncheons each year – one a month from September through May on the third Saturday. We have a weekend retreat in early June. Also, we have recently enjoyed two organized trips – one to Ajijic Mexico and another to the Bosque del Apache in Socorro.

We pride ourselves on being THE PLACE to get to know other women if you are new to UU Santa Fe or to the city of Santa Fe. Our informal and friendly luncheons are preceded by a social time. Members volunteer during the year to help with one luncheon. Each luncheon has a program given by an interesting Santa Fean, including some of our own members. The luncheon cost is $8 for members and $10 for nonmembers.

The proceeds from the luncheons, and the majority of the money from dues, are distributed in the spring to local charities that benefit women and children in the Santa Fe area.
