We attend festivals twice a year. Supporting our Land can be done by leaving no trace during and after the festival. Working together to help clean up taking the extra minute or two to clean up where we have camped or neighbor camped and didn’t see the trash fall out or what got left behind.
There are many different areas that go back to their cities but still continue to get together at different functions and talk about how wonderful the events where and how much they love the land. Some of the events take donations to be sent back to make the land payment smaller. There is Pagan Pride Day, where CMA members show they are part of a land they love and celebrate twice a year. There are the volunteers that put hard earned sweat and tears in the land on work weekends.
Many different ways we can support our land we love dearly. One good one I see of today is lighting candles, rituals, prayers to peaceful resolution to the conflict everyone is sharing. There has been anger and frustration, but the inferences I see is we all are showing our love for the land. Now just if we can step back and see what we can do to resolve this issue without so much conflict and hate.
Fundraisers, auctions, donations at various locations and times have been done to support the land we love. Also by supporting our people we support the land we love. There has been many times this Land; these people have been there to support me and my family when in time of deep need. I am grateful to know and help support the land that has given so much to me. Plants are being planted on the land, sacred areas of herbs for ritual use are in plans, and these all will support and make our land flourish.
