Vote, Retreat, and Convene!

Vote on Tuesday!
Tuesday is Election Day, our chance to make our voices heard on a number of candidates and issues.  Green Sangha urges you to go to the polls and vote for a sustainable future.  VOTE YES ON PROP 37.  Check our blog for a lengthy, fascinating article by Charlotte Silver.

Better yet, send this page on GMO labelling by California Right to Know to your friends and family.  Let’s spread the word and get Prop 37 passed!

Senator Boxer says Vote YES on Prop 37

Want more information, or an eloquent piece on the topic of GMO’s?  Here’s a reference to Michael Pollan’s article in the New York Times Magazine on GMOs and Prop 37.

Inner & Outer Restoration at Green Gulch, Sun Nov 11
Join us for our autumn afternoon retreat at Green Gulch Farm near Muir Beach, noon to 6 pm.  Lunch begins at 12:15 in their cozy dining hall, with soup, salad, and farm-baked bread.  Gather at 1 pm for orientation and work assignments.

Choose your task from a variety of land-tending, creek-restoring activities, light to vigorous.  After a couple of hours we break for muffins, tea, and conversation.  End the day with silent meditation in the Zendo, adding another stitch to the fabric of community and wholeness.  Bring a hat and other sun protection, layers for changeable weather, gloves if you have, even a favorite gardening tool if you like.  RSVP for lunch reservations and to organize carpools:  Linda Currie at (510) 558-8615.  (Elizabeth will be back in the office on Nov 10.)
