Tuesday’s event hosted with CommuniTree and Art in Action was such a special gathering of friends, colleagues, partners, family, and folks who were new to the work of Women’s Earth Alliance. As Joanna Macy noted during her talk, together, we certainly modeled an “adventure in collaboration!”
The Brower Center’s first ever Eco-Art and Urban Farm Reception was fabulously coordinated by CommuniTree and Art in Action. The good sounds of master kora player Youssoupha Sidibe provided the perfect soundscape to experience the powerful work of Planting Justice, Mo’Betta Foods, Kulture Freedom, People’s Grocery, Oakland Food Connection, Healthy Hoodz, Farm Fresh Choice and Bamboo Bike Project —Richmond Spokes!
Last night was the third and last event in our event series WEAving the Worlds Fall 2009, Coming up From the Roots. We started this event series in September with Ashwini Narayanan from Microplace. She talked about the power of women and the potential of microlending to change the world. In October we learned about the green jobs movement from Vien Truong from Green For All and Wahleah Johns from Black Mesa Water Coalition.
