Starting at 1pm on Wed, Oct 9th, will be a series of free workshops, a tour to Singing Frog Farm, and seminars, and ending the day with a showing of the new movie, "Symphony of the Soil" by the Sebastopol Grange, that all are welcome to enjoy.

GRANGE is an old english word meaning community... a historic organization (1870's) that is returning to it's roots; Fighting for the small farmer's rights and local, sustainable communities. Sonoma county has nine granges (the oldest continuing grange, 1873, Bennett Valley) but they are all beginning to rebuild their base communities.

The California State & Local Granges are leading the fight against GMO's, industrial food & agriculture, defending the small farmer via legislative resolutions.  They continue to educate, mentor, and work toward building communities that build relationships.

I have found it to be a way I can put into action, in a group setting, Crash Course Concepts.  Sebastopol Grange have sponsored talks by Chris Martenson, Nicole Foss (Stoneligh), and others, working to educate those who are questioning the current paradigm.  

In lieu of "talking about what I need to do"... through the Grange, I can do ( & with other like-minded folk)!

The 141st State Grange Convention is being hosted, for the first time, by the Sebastopol Grange and they have many activities open to the public. Wed, Oct 9th, from 1pm on, is designed for public consumption!  

Workshop on "How to Make a Community/Group Newsletter" to a display of an old English Ritual Dance 800 years old, to a movie showcasing many of our Local Farmers.  It is quite amazing how rich our area in California is in re-localizing our food base & building community relationships that are healthy.

Join us at 6000 Sebastopol Ave (Hwy 12), Sebastopol.  Here is a link to activities going on at the Grange this coming week... join us for the Barn Dance on Friday!  www.petalumagrange.com (click on the image, on the website, to enlarge the schedule)
