‘Earth Mama’ will lead workshop, hold free concert in Clinton


CLINTON — Earth Mama, whose motto says she is helping to heal the planet one song at a time, is coming to Clinton to celebrate International Day of Climate Action.

On Saturday, Oct. 24, the Sisters of St. Francis and their Clinton Franciscan Center for Active Nonviolence and Peacemaking will sponsor a workshop and concert featuring Earth Mama: a singer, songwriter, environmental entertainer and motivational speaker.  The two-part event will be held in the chapel in St. Clare Hall at Ashford University.

Earth Mama, whose real name is Joyce Johnson Rouse, hails from Cresco, Iowa, and now lives in Virginia.

“Think Outside the Barrel” is the theme of the workshop which runs from 1–4:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.  Fast-paced and with lots of practical tips based on years of research and ecological living, her program is spiced with music and humor and a challenge for everyone to reduce their ecological footprint at home, work and play.


At 7:30 p.m., Earth Mama will present a concert — “Helping Heal the Planet One Song at a Time.” 

The workshop and concert are free to the public.  For more information and driving directions call (563) 242-7611 or visit www.clintonfranciscans.com.
