The Lexicon of Sustainability pop-up show demystifies today's food making processes and its basic terms, and encourages everyone to make changes in their lives that will lead to healthier, safer and more sustainable food production now and in the future. The pop-up show is an attractive and creative way to begin the conversation about a societal move away from big agriculture and towards more ecologically sound practices in agriculture. The 24 images that comprise the show are available for loan to community members who would like to host the exhibit.

CONFERENCE CLOSING EVENT

People's Water Board Choir

Last year this choir sang satirical water Christmas carols at Noel Night and outside Manoogian Mansion. They then broadened their repertoire to include the Flowtown Revue which features Motown favorites with a social justice twist. The choir consists of Peoples Water Board members, members of the St. Charles Borromeo choir, and sundry activists.

The lyrics include a three-part message:
1) Stop the water shutoffs
2) Implement the 2005 Water Affordability Plan and
3) Water is a commons that should not be privatized



SEE YOU IN OCTOBER
