The Earth Center is one of the many sponsored works of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Philadelphia. Residing on the campus of Chestnut Hill College, the Earth Center exists to promote the importance of life in all forms, and to dedicate time and effort to preserving our environment. The Center also serves as a resource for community members who are looking to participate in holistic programming. The Center offers programs such as, “Step Away for the Day,” a program for women in impoverished situations to experience a day of health and wellness in nature, and, “Care for Creation,” offered to faculties and administrative groups of local schools and parishes. CFGP’s $500 Community Impact Award will assist the Earth Center in the continuation of both programs.
