How to Grow All Your Own Produce in 2.5 Years

[improve]

Growproduce.jpg
  • Date: Friday, March 16, 2012
  • Time: 6:00pm until 8:00pm
  • Location: King County Library Service Center 960 Newport Way NW, Issaquah, WA
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

In the Maritime Northwest, it is possible to grow all our own produce year-round with limited time to establish a system and limited effort.

As petroleum becomes more expensive, this sort of system can provide an example to support our evolution to a more sustainable society. Marisha Auerbach specializes in converting properties from grass to to a perennial forage system.

A perennial forage system functions much like a natural ecological system, and yields year round produce with minimal work. These systems are developed to meet the needs of the inhabitants on site.

Marisha provides most of her diet and income from her garden and has surplus produce and crafts to give away and trade for other supplies.

This presentation is an invitation for you to visit Marisha's gardens through slides and lecture. She will be discussing how you can work towards self-reliance in produce if you have property to work with as well as guerrilla tactics to grow more food and flowers in the greater community. This lecture offers an opportunity to create cultural change through gardening.

The slideshow will be an updated version, including Marisha's experience and reflections on moving to Portland this year in mid-June and her tiny yard. We hope you can join us...

Other details
;This presentation is sponsored by Sustainable Issaquah and the City of Issaquah Resource Conservation Office

Marisha is also teaching an 8-hour permaculture class with hands-on in Issaquah on the day following this event.

A GLOBAL DAY Of Action Shut Down MONSANTO ! European movement

[improve]

Anti monsanto.jpg
  • Date: March 16 until March 17
  • Time: 7:00 AM
  • Location: Any and Every Monsanto facility in the world
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

MONSANTO is one of the leading concerns in agricultural industry.
  • It's a leading producer of ROUND UP (glyphosate), which was proven to cause birth defects on some animals even in dilutions much lower than those used in agriculture.
  • Many of the seeds produced by the company are genetically modified to be RESISTANT TO CHEMICALS like Round Up. Eating products grown from them has been proven to have adverse effects on health.
  • The other controversy is TERMINATORS technology patented by one of the companies in Monsanto group. It allows to produce STERILE SEEDS which grow into plants that don't flower and grow seeds. It forces farmers to purchase new seeds each year, instead of growing their own and makes them totally DEPENDENT ON THE SUPPLIER. This caused many protests all over the World and it is a practice against natural rights!
  • Another controversy around Monsanto was introducing SYNTHETIC GROWTH HORMONE, known as "recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone" - hormone injected to cows to INCREASE MILK PRODUCTION. This hormone is present in milk and linked to many adverse effects like CANCER ACCELERATION.
  • The concern is responsible for pollution in different parts of the World, like dumping toxic waste in the UK (1965 - 1972), etc.
  • Moreover! Monsanto was also a producer of AGENT ORANGE - a herbicide and defoliant used by USA in Vietnam war. It was used to destroy crops and forests in many parts of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia (1962-71) and caused devastating effects on people's health like cancers, terrible birth defects, stillbirths and miscarriages, etc. These chemicals are still present in the soil.
  • Monsanto employs children in cotton-seeds manufacture in India. Work includes carrying of poisonous pesticides. Those children get less than half dollar daily for their work.


Europe resists genetically modified foods

EU legislation of 2003 demanded strict rules on labeling, traceability and risk assessments of GM foods by all the biotech companies. The 2004 regulation laid down procedures on traceability and labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and all products produced using GMOs. The mandatory labeling legislation extends its requirement to all food and food ingredients produced from GMOs regardless of the detectable presence of DNA or protein within the final food product. (source - Wikipedia)

Let's help to shut the poisoner down and bring it to justice!


UNITE WITH WORLDWIDE PROTESTS against the crimes of this corporation with one objective

to educate Consumers, Farmers - and Monsanto... that we are not ignorant, and we will Not accept GMO Control of Food. Consumers need to know what they are eating, and the disaster Export Farming and Control of Seeds has caused in the 3rd World, disguised as philanthropy. Millions are dying. Indigenous lands are destroyed, poverty and hunger has increased. the fight in Europe is well underway, with resistance in Poland, Hungary, France and England support street movements in Africa, Asia and Latin America

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A REAL STAND!!!!!!!

- Current Protest Sites on line so far -


POLISH

MONSANTO jest jednym z wiodących producentow w rolnictwie.

  • Jest to wiodący producent preparatu ROUND-UP (glifosat), który została powodować moze wady wrodzone u niektórych zwierząt nawet w rozcieńczeniach dużo niższych niż te stosowane w rolnictwie.
  • Wiele z tych nasion produkowanych przez spółkę jest genetycznie zmodyfikowana, w celu uzyskania odpornosci na substancje chemiczne jak Round-up. Spozywanie roslin, ktore wyrosly z nich moze wywierac negatywny wplyw na zdrowie.
  • Kolejna kontrowersja jest technologia opatentowana przez jedną ze spółek w grupie Monsanto. Pozwala ona produkować sterylne nasiona, z ktorych wyrastaja rosliny nie kwitnace i nie wydajace nasion. ZMUSZA to rolników do zakupu nowych nasion co rok, oraz czyni ich całkowicie zależnymi od dostawcy. Spowodowało to wiele protestów na całym świecie i jest to praktyka calkowicie niezgodna z prawami natury!
  • Inna kontrowersja wokół Monsanto było wprowadzenie SYNTETYCZNEGO hormonu wzrostu, wstrzykiwanego krowom celu zwiększenia produkcji mleka. Hormon ten jest obecny w mleku i jest z nim zwiazane wiele negatywnych skutków zdrowotnych, np. rakotworczosc.
  • Monsanto jest odpowiedzialne za zanieczyszczenia w różnych częściach świata, jak na przyklad skladowanie toksycznych odpadów w Wielkiej Brytanii (1965-1972), itp.
  • Ponadto: Monsanto był też producentem "AGENT ORANGE" -herbicydu wykorzystywanego przez USA w wojnie w Wietnamie. Niszczono nim uprawy oraz lasy w wielu miejscach Wietnamu, Laosu i Kambodży (1962-71) i mial on destrukcyjny wpływ na zdrowie ludzi (nowotwory, wady wrodzone, poronienia, itp. Chemikalia te są nadal obecne w glebie.
  • Monsanto zatrudnia dzieci w fabrykach produkujacych bawelne na terenie Indii. Praca obejmuje m.in. noszenie trujących pestycydów. Dzieci te zarabiaja mniej niż poł dolara dziennie.


Europa sprzeciwia sie genetycznie zmodyfikowanej żywności:

Prawo UE ( 2003 r.) zawiera ścisłe przepisy dotyczące etykietowania, identyfikowania i oceny ryzyka genetycznie modyfikowanej zywnosci przez wszystkie firmy. W 2004 r. ustanowiono procedury dotyczące możliwości śledzenia i etykietowania organizmów zmodyfikowanych genetycznie (GMO) i wszystkich produktow wytwarzanych z wykorzystaniem GMO. Obowiązkowe ustawodawstwo rozszerza je o wymog etykietowania żywności i składnikow żywności wyprodukowanej z GMO bez względu na obecność DNA lub wykrywalnego białka w końcowym produkcie spożywczym. (Źródło-Wikipedia)


Na całym świecie organizacje lacza sie w protescie przeciwko tym zbrodniom. Nasz cel: Edukacja konsumentów, rolnikow i przedstawicieli Monsanto... Nie bedziemy ignorantami! Konsumenci muszą wiedzieć co jedza, miec swiadomosc klęsk ekologicznych i Kontroli Eksportu nasion w krajach III świata. Miliony umierają. Nastepuje degradacja srodowiska.

Polska, Wegry, Francja, Wlk Brytania a takze niektore kraje afrykanskie, azjatyckie oraz kraje Ameryki Lacinskiej juz lacza sie w sprzeciwie.

Saturday

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80

[improve]

SeanKuti.jpg
  • Date: Saturday, March 17, 2012
  • Time: 8:00pm until 11:00pm
  • Location: The Winter Market is located in the South Park Blocks at Shemanski Park between SW Salmon & SW Main.
  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Sean Kuti & The Egypt 80

Oluseun Anikulapo Kuti (born 11 January 1983), commonly known as Seun Kuti, is a Nigerian musician, and the youngest son of legendary afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. Seun leads his father's former band Egypt 80.

Seun and his brother Femi are the two successful musical offspring of the late Nigerian afrobeat innovator Fela Kuti. Seun has one younger sister who used to sing in his band. At the age of nine Seun expressed the wish to sing to his father. A short while later Seun started acting as a sort of mascot and would sing a few songs backed by Egypt 80 before his father took to the stage. Since then, Seun has followed the political and social ethos of his father.

After Fela’s death of AIDS in 1997 Seun, then only 14 years old, became the lead singer of Egypt 80. While in school Seun had to choose between a career in music and one in American Football for which he has an outstanding talent. He had a friend performing for crowds too, sometimes consisting of only 3 or 4 people. He honed his musical skills for several years. Those skills were showcased to the world with his 2008 debut album, Many Things, produced by Martin Meissonnier, who had already produced two albums for his father.

About three-fourths of the current Egypt 80 line-up consists of musicians that not only played with Fela Kuti, but often were arrested and harassed alongside the founder of the Afrobeat movement. Live sets consist of both new material and originals from Seun’s father. During his lifetime Fela Kuti never performed songs he had recorded, so for many fans this is their first chance to enjoy classics like Shuffering and Shmiling, Colonial Mentality and Army Arrangement in a live setting. A new studio album called "From Africa with Fury: Rise" will be released on 5 April 2011.

Seun Kuti is featured in Calle 13's song "Todo se mueve" (Everything Moves), on their 2010 album Entren los que quieran.

He participated actively in the Occupy Nigeria protests against the fuel subsidy removal policy of President Goodluck Jonathan in his native Nigeria, in January 2012.

Chakra Dance

[improve]

Chakradance.jpg
  • Date: Every Sunday
  • Time: 10:30am until 12:30pm

  • Jump to this event's wiki page, edit it, discuss it or return to the events page.

Purpose

Each Sunday a special guest will guide us through a "Chakra Dance."

Among the best tools to evolve the spirit are the energy centers known as chakras. Chakra, an ancient sanskrit term meaning “wheel of light,” describes a complex human energy system of awareness.

The seven chakra centers are associated with specific areas of the physical body. Each chakra is equally important to our energy flow and vitality, and each affects all the others.

Developing one chakra while neglecting others only creates an imbalance, weakening overall strength. The goal is to have all seven chakras open, balanced and integrated.

Every Sunday morning at the Tiffany Center

  • 10:30 warmup, circle at 11, ends at 12:30
  • Cost: $10, Kids welcome and free!

Purpose

Dharma Circles invite us to rest in the ease of the present moment.

Frosty leaves as non-dual teachings from the world’s wisdom traditions open into the spacious field of the heart. Reflection, silent sitting, and silent movement soften our boundaries and open awareness of our essential nature, nearer to us than our own breath.

All contemplative practices and levels of experience (or no experience) are welcome.

The door is open at 6:45. At 7:00 pm we begin with dialogue and dharma reflection, followed by an hour of silent practice.

Feel free to bring cushions, mats, or whatever is comfortable for your sitting practice (some cushions and chairs are provided).

Grounded in the heart, our actions grow from deep soil to yield fruits that enhance peace, justice, beauty, and balance in all that we do.

In a tumultuous world, maintaining a spacious heart requires attention, intention, and ever-deepening love.

Sangha or satsang is created anytime we are present with others for reflection or practice in the space of the heart, in service of truth. Sharing that intention, our dialogues invite us into reflection on our deepest Being, Mystery, Emptiness, the Beloved.

Every faith or no faith are equally welcome here.

We embrace human nature just as it is, holy and broken, perfect and imperfect at the same time, and steep together in the timeless present moment, where definitions slip away.

Gathering in satsang, sangha, or a community of practice provides a rich common ground as we travel in the terrain of the Heart.

$5-$10 suggested donation (All are welcome)

Stop-The-Cuts.jpg

Join Laborers' Local 483 and sound off against knee-jerk budget cuts at the City of Portland that will close public restrooms in our Parks, close community centers, eliminate street maintenance, and send workers to the layoff line.

What is most important to you and your community? Stand up and speak out. Tell City Council not to throw in the towel on the services you depend on. It's time for hard work for community solutions- NOT CUTS.

Forum starts at 6:30pm, but come early to join the group and get a seat.

Purpose

Each Sunday a special guest will guide us through a "Chakra Dance."

Among the best tools to evolve the spirit are the energy centers known as chakras. Chakra, an ancient sanskrit term meaning “wheel of light,” describes a complex human energy system of awareness.

The seven chakra centers are associated with specific areas of the physical body. Each chakra is equally important to our energy flow and vitality, and each affects all the others.

Developing one chakra while neglecting others only creates an imbalance, weakening overall strength. The goal is to have all seven chakras open, balanced and integrated.

Other details
Every Sunday morning at the Tiffany Center

  • 10:30 warmup, circle at 11, ends at 12:30
  • Cost: $10, Kids welcome and free!
