एअर्थ वीक

Dear friends:

Earth Day is quickly approaching; do you know where your reusable bags are?

Thanks to Alex Felsinger for the Guardian pieces this week highlighting the botticellis & their surfing habitsannouncing their record release of Old Home Movies as well as a mention of the Alemany Farm Earth Day Potluck featuring acoustic sets by the greenhouse from the Botticellis, Slow Motion Cowboys (w/ Pete from Trainwreck Riders), Leyna Noel, Vanessa Verlee & Jeremy Rourke.

Next weekend, head up to Marin for the Spring Fling at Slide Ranch! Celebrate the season at this farm-on-the-ocean with live music, local organic cuisine, and farm and craft activities for all. Volunteers are still needed! Email Annie by Monday April 21st if you want to help ~

A few food/farm related articles to check out:
}Guardian piece (go green issue!) about school gardens and kids' relationship w/ food
}SF Chronicle piece about the negative health effects of aerial spraying for LBAM
}LA Times editorial editorial about some of the environmentally harmful, wasteful practices that need to be removed from the Farm Bill. Call your representatives and Senators to express your concern. We may find out today (or soon) whether we will have a new Farm Bill or have to live with the old one for two more years, which would be tragic.

Choir show update:
Conspiracy of Venus is playing Sunday April 27th at the Make-Out Room, with Kacey Johansing and the Hallflowers and Saturday May 3rd in Oakland at the Fort Gallery with Two Gallants, Trainwreck Riders, the Deciders, and Ted the Block, to benefit the Gulabi Gang. We would love to see you there!

A couple more things:
I am starting to teach Beginner's yoga classes at 848 Divisadero on alternating Tuesdays. Email if you want more info, or check this list for updates. Raw foodluck to occur sometime in May.

Happy earth week!
