Join our friends at Faith in Place September 11-14 online for their annual Green Team Summit.
Join us on August 3rd for a day of giving to support Iowa’s great environmental organizations!
Over the past year, I have traveled the state running our Faith Farms & Climate program with groups of farmers and faith leaders. We’ve gathered in churches over a meal to talk about how our vocation calls us to climate action. And the one question I have for faith leaders in our rural communities is this: “When’s the last time you went to a field day?” More often than not, the answer is never.
Last week, our team (Claira, Irene, and Elston) hopped in the car to get our feet in the field and visit two of Iowa’s most outspoken regenerative farmers – Denise O’Brien and Seth Watkins.

While it often feels naive to feel hope for a bright future, it is imperative that we shift our mindset from one of defeat and despondency to one of optimistic determination. The window of hope is still open and it is up to us to climb through it.
Today’s Supreme Court’s ruling on West Virginia v. The Environmental Protection Agency limits the EPA’s ability to set the strong standards needed to cut carbon pollution and tackle the climate crisis. We at Iowa IPL mourn this decision.
