ECO-CHALLENGE

The Netiya Steward Eco-Challenge was created to challenge students in faith-based communities to partake in food justice and sustainable farming/gardening through innovation and invention. This contest inspires students to be creative and to deepen their engagement in the most pressing ecological issues of our times.

We are presenting this challenge in order to bring youth from our congregations, partners and communities together.

Find out more about the eco-challenge here.
