Donning my Green Apron

Welcome to my new blog, The Green Apron, a companion to my Quaker Pagan blog, Plainly Pagan. I begin this blog with the intention of providing space to share and develop my eco-feminist ideas with others with similar concerns about the erosion of our environment.

The title of this blog indicates my concern for the environment (green) within the context of domesticity and motherhood (apron). While I, of course, am interested in community, national, and international environmentalist issues, this blog is most concerned with how we, in our littleness, can make a difference.

The Green Apron is also a reference to the green aprons worn by Quaker women long ago. This blog will frequently highlight the intersections between my environmentalism and my interests in Quaker and Neo-Pagan feminist spiritualities.
