Emerald Keepers, Working To Make Coronado A Model For Communities Around The Globe

Amy Steward is riding high. As a long-time community member, she has had her hand in many projects. She has done everything from teaching in CUSD, being the teacher behind the KCMS studio, which now bears her name, serving as the jump rope team coach to serving Coronado arts. But she might have now found her greatest calling in the creation of Emerald Keepers, a new non-profit dedicated to developing sustainable practices in Coronado.When I spoke with her, Steward was full of excitement, just at the beginning of the organization’s official launch and with city support coming in the form of an official mayoral proclamation declaring, “the month of June as “Emerald Green, Ocean Blue” month in the City of Coronado and encourage all citizens to become true stewards of our Emerald Green, Ocean Blue village. With this proclamation we ask Citizens of Coronado to commit to sustainable practices and join together in an annual celebration commencing in 2020 – the year of perfect vision–– to commemorate Coronado’s environmental stewardship.”While Steward’s goal is to eliminate single-use plastics and polystyrene, her means of getting there is education. “At heart,” she says, “I am an educator … that’s really what this is about – winning hearts and minds.”
