Action: Earth Week Film Festival

Last week was Earth Week Film Festival at HCC. It was and will maybe continue to be, an environmentally themed film festival. This was an Howard Community College Environmental Club event, open and free to the public.

We showed five movies: NOVA’s Power Surge, Broken Tail: A Tiger’s Last Journey, NOVA’s Making Stuff Cleaner, Radioactive Wolves, and Burning the Future: Coal in America. They are all great movies and the event was a success. I’ll put up a few pictures and post the links to where you can watch the movies for free online. All but Burning the Future: Coal in America are free online.

I spent a lot of time putting everything together, of course with help from other club members and faculty at HCC. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun.

Howard Community College Environmental Club

Okay, so, if I did not mention it before, I was elected president of Howard Community College’s Environmental Club. I have been really busy with that, classes, and other extracurricular activities, some of the extra’s I may add even though they are not pagan in any way.

One of the things I got done with the club is stream clean up on campus. We collected a lot of trash and I found a pretty rock and Wendy, who took this photo, found a near fully skeletonized deer. It was a pretty awesome day.

Also, we volunteered, a few of us did at least, at Samaritan Women. We volunteered at their farm which feeds victims of human trafficking and female veterans. Yes, it’s a Christian ministry but what does that matter? The cause is what matters. The farm is 100% organic, they have a solar powered electric fence too keep out a deer, range fed raised chickens, and they make their own compost. Only three members including myself went so the pictures are few and not of us working. Next time!

I also volunteered at Howard County GreenFest yesterday (April 13th). It was great and I so wished I had a house and garden to fully take advantage of all the lovely things I could do. It did give me ideas of what to do for club events next semester though.

The club has a Earth Week Film Festival coming up too, NEXT WEEK OMG IT’S COMING UP SO SOON! I still have a few things to do for it. I hope everything comes together as planned.
