Sacred Economics with Charles Eisenstein

Is it possible to have healthy food without healthy community?

Join Charles Eisenstein, visionary speaker and author of Sacred Economics, The Ascent of Humanity, and The Yoga of Eating, for an evening discussing the links between the food we eat, our happiness and health, the music we make, and the myriad crises afflicting our civilization.

Friday, January 20th at 7pm at the Timucua White House RSVP Here

Hear him encompass all of that within a much larger, more beautiful picture of what this moment in humanity’s journey actually is–a vision so new, fresh, and deep, it gives real hope for humanity and makes evident profound things we can do, personally and as a community, to bring about a world that works for everyone.

About Charles Eisenstein:

Charles is an author, speaker, and teacher of the healing arts at Goddard College. He offers all of his work in the spirit of the gift, and this evening will be no exception. He is coming to Florida at his own expense, in order to share his vision with us. We ask that if you feel grateful for his work, in addition to bringing some food to share with the audience, you bring something to give Charles based on your sense of gratitude, propriety and value.

“I consider Charles Eisenstein one of the up-and-coming great minds of our time. Rarely have I met a person who combines such philosophical and spiritual depth with such practical insights into the cultural and institutional origins of the potentially terminal dysfunctions of modern society—and the potential solutions.”
—David Korten, author of The Great Turning

300 Members – 30 Days: Homegrown Co-op’s End of Year Membership Drive Brings Impactful Change for 2012

Homegrown Co-opHomegrown Co-op is recruiting 300 new members in a fundraising push that will launch 2012 plans that will make a big impact for Central Floridians wanting convenient access to local food—which is the Co-op’s primary mission.

In what remains of 2011, Homegrown Co-op has an ambitious plan to recruit 300 new members – including individual registrations and gift memberships – to meet its year-end capital revenue needs and be able to continue its development plans into 2012.

At the minimum, funds raised through this membership drive will secure the Co-op’s operational expansion in order to continue providing greater customer convenience and a wider selection of inventory for their weekly online market and their Farm Store. The Co-op’s eventual goal, however, is significantly grander: to develop its convenience storefront into 7 days of operation with a larger selection of food, and to launch three neighborhood pick up sites in Winter Park, Dr Phillips, and University of Central Florida during the first half of 2012.

Continued development of their retail storefront will offer a level of access and convenience that is in great demand but not currently available.
