We will be hosting two film screenings next week:
Tuesday October 1st 7pm. Sustainability Film Screening and Discussion. We will show: Organioponico: An Agricultural Revolution 6 min. A short film looking at the success of organic urban agriculture in Havana, Cuba. An example for cities around the world.
Learning From Ladakh 1 hr. This documentary shows how the peaceful land of Ladakh, in the Western Himalayas, changed from a sustainable traditional economy based on trade and cooperation when “development” set in. The film raises important questions about the notion of progress, and explores the root causes of the problems faced by a highly industrialized society. Bringing snacks to share is encouraged but not required!
Thursday October 3rd 7pm. THE SMASHING HUNGER SQUASHING POVERTY TOUR with Food Not Bombs Co-founder Keith McHenry. Food Not Bombs volunteers have been smashing hunger and squashing tofu in protest to the exploitation of capitalism for over three decades. During Keith’s tofu spread demonstration he will talk about the principles, history and Food Not Bombs participation in the global transformation away from corporate domination. Hunger and poverty are intentional features of capitalism and will increase as corporate power increases. Over 25,000 people die every day because of hunger often as tons of food pass them on the way to better prices. Oxfam and the UN are reporting that hunger will be on the increase this year leading to civil unrest and violent police repression. The capitalist food system is not only causing millions of animals to suffer but is directly responsible for an increase in food insecurity, disease and the climate crisis. Keith’s presentation will inspire you to participate in the transition to a future free from violence and exploitation. Copies of Keith’s book “Hungry for Peace” with the tofu spread recipe will be available at the presentation.

Yellow & Black Orb Weaver Spider – Argiope Aurantia
I found three orb weavers hiding in the garden. One female and two males. They already constructed their zigzag webs. Here is a link to more information about this beneficial garden spider!
