Green Team

Unity of Harrisburg supports the environment and wise stewardship of our planet. To better serve the congregation we have developed the "Green Team" to address various areas in which the congregation has expressed interest.

Landscape - Arlene Taylor, Team Leader

Arlene heads up all the work that is done on the landscaping around the church property. Volunteers are needed from the beginning of spring through the fall to assist with weeding, garden cleanup, mowing and various other jobs. People can stop by at their convenience after speaking to Arlene about what needs to be done first. Please contact her via email at:
