Thank you for your support!
We’re officially open! We held our grand opening event on Earth Day and had more than 70 community members come out to support us!

I saw the new trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction that is set to be released on June 27 (click here). I cannot help but to remember Sissela Bok’s critique of the passive consumption of popular culture. Just remember, what may be seen as apolitical entertainment is in fact an ideological vehicle for pro-war, pro-militarist propaganda.
“Hollywood directors remain more than happy to ideologically slant their films in precisely the pro-war, pro-militarist direction that the Pentagon demands in exchange for taxpayer-subsidized access to military hardware in their films. That, in turn, tilts our entire culture toward war. Only when we fundamentally change this Military-Entertainment Complex and recognize the deep connections between pop culture and militarism can we hope to have a more pragmatic, less bellicose national security politics and posture.” - David Sirota, “The Pentagon’s Strengthening Grip on Hollywood”
Definitely consider reading Sirota’s article in full.
I have an extra ticket to Shaky Knees and will like to give one lucky individual the opportunity to attend. I am planning to collect names and randomly pick one as the winner. Please inbox me to find out how to participate! :)
18 days of construction, over 100 volunteers, and more than 5 days worth of of overtime it’s finally here! In December I accepted the “Garden and Kitchen Coordinator” position at El Sol, a local non-profit (look us up we’re extra awesome!) and I am so glad I got this garden built in under one month! 3 members have already planted and we have a 9 family waiting list already! We’re opening on Earth day and I am so touched that listening to this land is your land is literally making me bawl.
..We want to start a low income kids summer camp teaching healthy eating and environmental education next summer- contact me if you’re interested in a paid internship doing just that!
