The CommUNITY March for Healthy Food is a positive action component to the ‘March Against Monsanto’ on May 25th at 11:00 AM PST. (San Diego)
This component of the march has arisen from the Local Earth Collective to provide a clearly defined goal that we would like to work together as a community in San Diego to create. As a collective we are choosing to focus our energies into what WE WANT TO CREATE as a HEALTHY and SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” ― Richard Buckminster Fuller
We are choosing to focus on finding common ground upon which we can collectively work to create a healthy food system for this planet. Rather than provoking a fight with Monsanto; we are choosing an open hand and invitation for positive collaboration with any individuals or organizations (including Monsanto) that results in steps forward in our planets collective journey towards health, happiness and justice.
Choosing to fight ‘against’ something requires a lot of energy and often leaves us with limited energy left to CREATE what we are IN SUPPORT OF. As a collective we are proposing that we harness the energy of this event and focus it into creating something positive for the food systems of our local and global community. We feel it is necessary to make sure we clearly know what we are in support of and provide solutions, if we are choosing to take a stance against something.
See the Facebook group ‘Healthy Food for Local Earth / San Diego’ – for discussions on how to generate local actions we can take to create a healthy and sustainable food system for our planet!
We will be meeting Thursday, April 25th in the community room at People’s Coop from 6:00 – 7:00 PM to discuss and plan what positive steps of action we are ready to take! (Address: 4765 Voltaire St, San Diego, CA 92107)

We will give you admin access to the Facebook page and you can create an event for your community! Please share this message and invitation with all of your family and friends that you care about! Healthy food is one of our most fundamental basic necessities that all of humanity shares, and one of the most important tools we have to creating a healthy and happy life. Let’s work together to education ourselves, spread awareness and inspire others to do the same!
With joy, love, respect and gratitude,
