MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
Hey there. First time I've been back here since before the site moved. No, I don't own any solar panels, but I do own an earth machine, drive a vehicle that gets over 20mpg in the city,and close to 40 interstate. I buy locally produced food. So is this just for your edification to see if I just talk the talk, or am I walking the walk? If people are not pissed at times, what is their incentive, other than self preservation, to exert effort on something that has no immediate gratification? Change is wrought with thought, then materials, then labor. How else do you see a world or society not based upon the consumption of carbon based fossil fuels? What is the impetus to get outta our ruts that are so comfy if all is in equilibrium?
From I17 headed North, you can take either Rt 260, to 89A through Cottonwood to get to Sedona, or you can take Rt 179 off I17 straight through the Village of Oak Creek to Sedona. I think the 179 route is a bit longer, but I guarantee you, that you will enjoy the ride. The views of the RedRocks from that perspective are absolutely magnificent!
What is your work? and What kinds of information about the Verde Food Council most interest you?
Thank you for your comments, I tried many times to answer you, but there was some difficulties access the site.
My email is : Lillian.moussa@orascomHD.com
I will be looking forward to hear from you soon.
Kindest regards from Cairo.
Thank you Bill for adding me as a friend, it's my pleasure,
I wonder what is the most thing you liked for. I like to know your impresstions.
Hope to also upload your photo to let people know you.
Thanks for the invite. If you're interested in the problems associated with debt and the difficulties people often experience in the mainstream economy, I'm all ears and would enjoy a dialog with you.
My primary focus is on food security and resilience: eating locally produced food, growing a kitchen garden, home canning and preserving, bee keeping, maintaining a really well stocked pantry, and working with friends and neighbors to absorb hard times.
According to your web link you seem to have a religious focus. I'm not a believer myself, but I do appreciate church groups for the community and support they provide. I'm open to many faiths. In fact I get many of my most useful and practical ideas from Mormon sources. I prefer faith-based initiatives that work to solve problems in a pragmatic manner. I shy away from theocratic Us-vs.-Them churches. For example, I have elderly aunts in Miami who refuse to go to the nearest Catholic church because it was "taken over" by Cubans. There isn't a hair's breadth difference between Sicilians and Cubans as far as I can see (ask any white Southern Baptist), but these distinctions are very important to some folks.
