Non-Traditional Parents Group

This class is intended to provide support to people with children who are raising their children or living their own lives in a non-traditional way.  We seek to share our experiences, thoughts and compassion with others who share the common bond of raising a young person in a time of revolution.  The subject of our meetings will ultimately be based on what the group would like to discuss but some subjects may include.

How we support our children in their individuality

How we deal with troubling behavior

How we deal with images and ideas from the media

Recipe shares/ diet

How we keep politically involved as parents

How we involve our children in the world

How we expose or shelter our children from politics 

How we embrace non-conformity in our households 

How we deal with critisism from the outside world

 

Children are welcome!

Our Shared Table and the Future of Food, Seed & Biodiversity

A hands-on workshop designed for communities to explore the global food economy

 

No matter what passport we carry or heritage we claim, we all depend on food.

Protecting seeds and agricultural diversity remains an enduring global concern with economic and ecological implications for every local community.

For thousands of years and until recent decades all food was produced organically. In landscapes across the globe, farming communities adapted seeds to local ecosystems and generated a wealth of vital agricultural diversity.

In today’s food economy 1.5 billion small-scale farmers rely on farm saved seed and provide 70 % of the world’s food.  Since 1960, they have contributed 1.9 million varieties of plants to the world’s seed banks. (In 2007, records attributed 72,5000 plant varieties to industrial agricultural research-40%of these are ornamentals (flowering plants).

Despite their proven leadership as custodians of biodiversity, small- scale farmers are struggling to retain access to land and the right to food and seed sovereignty in a global economy shaped by the organizing principles of the agribusiness’ approach to agriculture. With growing concerns about climate change, small -scale, ecologically sound cultivation remains critical for the future of food.

Eating to Live v. Living to Eat: An Exercise in Making Healthy Food Choices on a Fixed Budget

Eating to Live v. Living to Eat: An Exercise in Making Healthy Food Choices on a Fixed Budget

What does that mean? Do you know according to the WHO undernutrition/malnourishment and overnutrition are the new pandemic? Feel depressed, lethargic or not 100%? You could have a serious malnourishment or deficiency. You might be eating without receving the maximum benefits one needs to be 100% healthy.Together we can explore through walking and or bus tours of local foodways to learn how to incorporate healthy eating into your lifestyle. We will learn to read labels and train ourselves to have better ideas about whole foods vs. processeed. Eating nutritively is not just for the rich and well heeled. I am an advocate for food being easy to find, inexpensive and quality. Our weekly meet ups will incorporate learning how to make healthier choices and feed a family of 4 on a budget. I want to show you how to garden, forage for quality low cost food and increase your purchasing power.

We will plant a garden and cook from it all season using the plants we will choose together. You will need to be present for this the entire class.

We will start with your budget, your food insecurties or fears, issues with food and your cooking/food prep. knowledge. We will be cooking what we forage locally so, please be prepared to get dirty and dress for comfort.

I speak Arabic (elementary), French, Portuguese and Spanish. So please if you are 100% fluent we can work it out!
