Local Earth Social / March / Garbage Warrior

The Local Earth Collective invites you to join us for our monthly social on the 1st Friday of every month at the World Beat Center! (March 1st / 6:30-10:30PM)

Intention – Coming together as community to celebrate, learn, share, educate & inspire! Each month will have a theme focused on a specific element of sustainable community development & healthy lifestyle.

Eat some tasty food made with love… laugh with old friends… and get to know new eco-minded friends in San Diego!  The World Beat Center serves delicious vegetarian food.  We will also have a food sharing table, so please feel free to bring an organic vegetarian potluck item to share if you wish!

The element of community we are focusing on for March is ‘Shelter’.  Several local organizations that are doing great work in this area will be joining us to give a short presentation on their current projects (4 Walls International & Rebuild Global).  After the presentations we will show the movie Garbage Warrior“The epic story of radical Earthship eco architect Michael Reynolds, and his fight to build off-the-grid self-sufficient communities.”

This is a ‘leave a positive trace’ event and we ask that every possible effort is made to create no waste… so please use reusable containers for food and beverages… the Earth thanks you!!!

Local Earth Website Management / WordPress / Social Media

Local Earth is a nonprofit organization that inspires the sustainable use of natural resources & healthy lifestyle.  We are looking for an individual or a team of web savvy individuals with a passion for healthy environment and community to join us in this movement!

This is a volunteer community group and we work together to create positive, sustainable and healthy change in San Diego.  We really need some wordpress savvy people on the team to help manage the website and post social media content.

The basics of the site and operations are in place… we just need some help sustaining the movement and momentum… many hands/minds makes light work!  This would require very little time from one individual and even less for a small team.  Only 1-2 hours per week is necessary updating project & event information.

Thank you for you desire to work together as a commUNITY to create a better world!

With warmth & gratitude,
The Local Earth Collective

At 8:00 PM we will be starting the film ‘GENETIC ROULETTE’.  “Genetic Roulette is a powerful, compelling indictment of the biotechnology industry’s genetically engineered food experiment that is being foisted on the American public. The film shows in disturbing detail the many health hazards of this potentially dangerous technology. Adding to the film’s power and hopeful message are the many testimonials from health professionals and individuals who describe the benefits of eating a non-GMO diet. All Americans who are concerned about the foods they eat should see this film.” – Ken Roseboro, editor and publisher, The Organic & Non-GMO Report and The Non-GMO Sourcebook, and author of Genetically Altered Foods and Your Health.

The film is about 90 minutes, around 9:30 PM we will discuss the film and local projects that we can support as a community to create a more healthy & sustainable local food system.

This is a ‘leave a positive trace’ event and we ask that every possible effort is made to create no waste… so please use reusable containers for food and beverages… the Earth thanks you!!!
