On Sunday, June 24, the Pagosa Unitarian Universalist Fellowship topic will be “Healing the World-Via the Eden Project,” presented by Puja and Udgar Parsons.
They feel that The Eden Project, in Cornwall, England, is an inspiration in considering what Pagosa Springs could be, with its vast beauty and natural resources.
The Parsons visited the project in 2010 and were guided by a young man who had participated in the program from the beginning. and who treated them to the inside story of the challenges and miracles of Eden’s unfolding. They learned that this eco-destination is one of the most visited sites in the world, due to the attraction of its gardens inside big dome greenhouses called Geomes, which are built over an old quarry.
Puja and Udgar Parsons, CEOs of the Pagosa Springs company, Growing Spaces, L.L.C, direct their efforts toward education about organic growing, as well as demonstrating a New Business Culture for clients around the world. They present the growing dome greenhouse as an antidote to the problems of global warming and nutritional deficiency.
Puja Dhyan Parsons has degrees in fine arts, religious studies, philosophy and psychology, and she has woven these themes together throughout her life endeavors. Udgar has a background in dentistry, farming, solar and wind power, Gestalt therapy and meditation, and has focused his energies on establishing off-the-grid systems for energy efficiency.
Julie Loar takes the helm as the new program coordinator of the CRE (Children’s Religious Exploration). In the casual summer months, the children and young people will be spending more of their program time together outdoors.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire atation, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign.
All are welcome.
