SFEE is grateful to host Earth Day at Saint Joseph Villa. For over 150 years the Sisters of Saint Joseph have served the people of Long Island. The Villa, located along the shore of the Shinnecock Bay is a place where their ministry thrives.

Focused on the empowerment of women and education rooted in ecological efforts with a focus on sustainability, and justice actions the Sisters recognize our community of life includes all of creation – air, soil, water, plants and animals.

The Villa now is home to the Ecological Culture Initiative fostering a resilient, ecology-based coastal community through advocacy and education in sustainable food production, wellness, and environmental stewardship. Their garden is farmed by community volunteers and all produce is donated to a local Hampton Bays food pantry. The Villa is also one of SFEE’s drop off sites for our Flour Power initiative.

The Shinnecock Kelp Farmers, a multi-generation collective of Indigenous women who are enrolled members of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, leveraging their 10,000+-year-old traditional relationship with the sea and with seaweed to capture carbon and nitrogen that have poisoned the waters of Shinnecock Bay and beyond. All while laying the groundwork for green jobs on the East End. The Kelp farmers also call the Villa home.

Come and meet these amazing people and all the incredible vendors that will also be joining us! 

We look forward to seeing you at the Villa.
