Heifer USA is developing a new focus on supporting and strengthening local food systems. In order to learn more about our local food systems in the Sacramento area, we will have guest speaker at our Jan 24 volunteer meeting.

Paul Cultrera of the Sacramento Food Co-op will be sharing info on the "One Farm at a Time" program (info at www.sacfoodcoop.com) and also on the movement known as "Slow Money," based on the book of the same name by Woody Tasch (info at www.slowmoney.org). Both of these subject concern supporting local food systems and the local farmers they depend on.

The Alternative Gift Fair at Spiritual Life Center was a huge success! The 5 booths provided choices for participants between Heifer International, Healing Journeys, Placer Nature Center, Golden State Donor Services and Solar Cookers International. The "What's for Dinner" Heifer activity was a real eye-opener that helped participants understand the extent of poverty in our world. A big thanks to Pat Sayer-Handley, Connie Fierro, Judy Grimshaw and Carole Mercer for making the event a success!

12 Stones Showing at the International House

Posted by Amy On Saturday, January 08, 2011 0 comments

The 12 Stones showing was held at the International House on a rainy night in Davis, CA. The event started with an outstanding Napalese Dance performed by the daughter of the owner of a local Napalese restaurant (Namaste). After the dance, Isaak Egge introduced the film by discussing the work of Heifer International. The 12 Stones DVD was shown and enjoyed by all. After the film, a fantastic discussion occured about the role of the Napalese women and their ability to pass on the gifts they are given. The discussion included all participants including a group of college women that were excited to hear about Heifer's work with empowering women around the world. A big thanks to the volunteers who made this night possible including Pat, Isaak, Amy, Judy, Susan, JoAnn and Liz!
