Meatless Monday in EWG's New Study: A Meat Eaters Guide to Climate Change and Health!


Following is an email I received from Meatless Monday which I would like to share with you all...please read and pass it on! Also, I attached some really cute pictures of our kitty Silvi...he loves nori!



Hi Everyone-

Some of you may have already heard, but today the Environmental Working Group released a lifestyle analysis of the links between meat consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

The Meat Eaters Guide to Climate Change and Health can help you to determine which protein sources are the most and least carbon friendly. At www.ewg.org/meateatersguide you can take their quiz and see how much you know as well as find great educational materials to learn more. They embrace the Meatless Monday concept and even recommend the recipes on MeatlessMonday.com (which come from you!) to improve personal and planetary health.


We hope this new research (re)inspires you to commit to go without meat, one day a week!


Happy Monday!

The Growing Experience featured in the LA Times!!


I'm pleased to let you know that The Growing Experience was featured in the online version of the LA Times Home Section today. Here's the link:

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/home_blog/2011/07/growing-experience-urban-farm-long-beach.html

It's a great write-up about our local Long Beach farm and the programs they operate for the community. Check it out if you have a minute, and please leave a comment at the end of the article-there's a possibility that they could be featured in Sunset Magazine, if there's a lot of interest. That would be great to put Long Beach on the map! As usual, thanks for your support.
