Why 350? Why Now?
Take action and become part of the landmark global movement for climate change. Despite researchers’ findings in 2007, our atmospheric carbon levels are still increasing, hovering near 390 and showing no signs of reversing. Our Planet has a fever, this day will show policy-makers we are ready to mobilize and be heard. Hayes Valley Farm is the Headquarters for the largest 10 | 10 | 10 Work Party event in the Region.
