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!!!
