Community Supported Agriculture is Growing Like a Weed!

There’s a new CSA forming in the Morristown area!  This is great news as shares are sold out in several other area CSAs.  What is a CSA?  CSA stands for community supported agriculture.  The basic idea is that a farmer grows for a group of members who have purchased shares in the harvest in advance of the season — when the farmer needs the money.  When the crops come in, the farmer delivers a weekly assortment of organic vegetables, herbs and some fruit.

Now that's farm fresh!

Now that's farm fresh!

John Krueger is the owner/operator of Starbrite Farm.  He has a BS in environmental science from Cook College and has been farming organically since 2002.

Vegetables are grown in western New Jersey and delivered to Morristown every week for pick up.  The season is 22 weeks long and begins June 18th and runs through November 12.  Membership includes a weekly assortment of 6-10 varieties of organic produce, and members are expected to contribute one 4-hour shift to help with distribution (that sounds like fun!) — hanging out with other folks who enjoy fresh, organic, NJ grown produce.  Interested?  Hurry before the shares are all sold out.   

Call Jamie at 973.699.1913 or Liz at 973.984.2432.

    Thanks for the link to LocalHarvest.org.

    I’m going to Florida in July to get married and I will use that site to find some organic produce to line the tables!

Cafeteria Man

“All across America, school food is undergoing a major transformation to help reverse the childhood obesity epidemic — but not without opposition and challenges. CAFETERIA MAN provides an inspiring, behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to bring fresher, healthier food to the millions of kids in our nation’s schools. The film follows nationally-recognized chef Tony Geraci as he works to revamp school food programs that feed thousands of students in two big city districts — Baltimore and Memphis. Responding to the pleas of Baltimore students who were fed-up with terrible school lunches, Geraci was hired to replace pre-plated foods with tastier, more nutritious meals. But he didn’t stop there. To help students develop a better appreciation for healthier foods, he also established a model 33 acre teaching farm, brought in more locally sourced produce, and initiated student-designed meals. CAFETERIA MAN shows that it is possible to feed our nation’s students healthier, more nutritious meals, and provides inspiration and ideas to win the fight for better school food.

With appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama, noted food author Michael Pollan, White House Chef Sam Kass. "

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
