Uplifting and learning from the First Black Republic

IBW-haiti-photoI just read the report from Institute of the Black World’s Haiti Support Project Visit (January 15-19, 2014) and wow is it full of good stories and information. Check it out to learn about the past, present, and future of the world’s First Black Republic. There are lots of great photos and videos.

FOR THE LOVE OF FOOD

BlindSpots

GreenStar Community Projects is hosting a benefit concert to raise money to promote healthy food access, education, and food systems in our community. The Blind Spots will be groovin for one of their few nights on the local scene this year in support of these food justice efforts.

Doors open at 6:30pm at the newly renovated The Space @ Greenstar with a suggested $10 donation for admission. We will have beer, wine and snacks at the concession table (tips go to support Loaves and Fishes), and a silent auction full of wonderful gifts from our community.

PLEASE bring a food donation (perishable or non-perishable) for the Friendship Donation Network to be entered into a raffle to win a gorgeous piece of art from Helena Cooper.

The official event poster has been attached. Check out our website for more details on the work we do at GSCP for food justice in our community.

Hope to see you all there!!

Note: I don’t know how vegan-friendly this event will be, but I think it’s one many vegans will be interested in!
