What we do

We joyfully bring people together to help create a better world through climate education & action

WHY CLIMATE EDUCATION? BECAUSE THE CLIMATE DRIVES EVERY ECOSYSTEM & HUMAN PURSUIT. SO, PROTECTING OUR FOOD AND WATER OFTEN STARTS BY PROTECTING THE CLIMATE.

F.U.N (Future unfolds now) EVENTS

Each month we host intergenerational,  energizing, FUN activities with a guilt-free educational component to kick off the event. These monthly events bring diverse people together to join in important climate education and conversations while doing family-friendly activities such as horse-drawn sleigh rides, skating, sailing, and more. All events are free of charge, and language interpreters, ride assistance, warm clothing, and specialized equipment are provided upon request to ensure community access. 

CReate Your Future

This program combines environmental education and the arts, especially theater and puppetry, to help shift our narrative away from doom and helplessness to comedy and intrigue to “re-write our future.” While these are definitely challenging times, this is also an extraordinary time to be on the planet and influence the direction of civilization. We are returning to what has always shaped society—stories. Stories are magical because they can shift a person’s perspective in a way that no other medium can. The future hasn’t happened. There’s still time to choose and create the future we want. 

Food Equity

We All Need Food and Water isn’t just the name of our organization, it is an overarching truth that unites all living beings. In today’s world, we need to come together to ensure our own survival as a species and equitable access to resources. Everyone needs and deserves healthy food and water.  Join us at the Peace Community Garden to tend your own plot or help others with theirs.

We All Need Food and Water has “giving garden” rows and we donate the produce to area food shelves. We are always in need of help in planting, weeding, and picking. Contact us if you’d like to help.

Circles

The climate crisis is the elephant in the room that no one wants to address. Yale Climate Communications confirms that 72% of  Americans realize climate change is happening but only 35% discuss climate change even occasionally. In line with renowned climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe, we recognize that solving problems starts with talking about them. Circles are laid-back climate discussion groups that jumpstart and help normalize these difficult-to-start conversations.

Out-of-school Care & Day-Camps

Water Heroes Camps are geared for 6 to 12 year-olds and can  be structured to fit your programming needs. We often work with before- and after school care programs and as well as summer day camps. Let us know what your needs are and we’ll tailor a camp just for your organization. 

Community Building in the Garden

Sign up to teach your own content in the Community Garden. We welcome community-building events, activities, and workshops in the garden. We can even help you with the registration process.

Spring F.U.N Event (Future Unfolds Now)

Camping with Kids—Goat AND Human Kids!

Dates and Times: May 13th, 14th, and 15th.

Location: Peace Lutheran Church (20 Northdale Blvd. Coon Rapids, MN 55448).

Event Description: Goats are amazing because they eat the most undesirable and noxious weeds imaginable!  As a result, we are working with Peace Lutheran Church in Coon Rapids to rid their Peace Community Garden of annoying and illegal weeds such as the painfully abundant sand burs and potentially toxic leafy spurge. Instead of spraying chemicals that may or may not even work to combat these horrible weeds, we are bringing in the goats to munch these weeds down.
