Green Divas Radio Show: Celebrating 4th of July, Ford & Transitions

0 31


Mizar and I were on our own this week and for the first time, we pre-recorded the entire show. We even got carried away and had fun doing a couple of video product reviews, the one above, which was one of them.

The recording session was on the heels of my whirlwind trip to Detroit to visit Ford, where I got entrenched in their design and innovation culture and had a blast driving some cars. I talked about it a bit in the opening of the show, and our Green Dude report was with Seth Leitman (aka GreenLivingGuy), who was also in Detroit playing with cars.

Feature Interview: Rob Hopkins, Founder Transition NetworkRob Hopkins, Transition Network

We finally got a chance to catch up with Rob Hopkins, founder of Transition Network. Our GD Correspondent Nomi Lyonns, who lives in Salt Spring Island, BC has reported a couple of times about her work with Transition Towns in her community, and we have been inspired and intrigued. He called us from the UK and the connection was much better than our usual call-in connections here in the US!

Happy 4th of July!

Seriously? It was like driving camp! We got to play Fiesta soccer. We drove IN REVERSE through a curvy track and hit the ball into the big net. Did that poor girl holding the ball get hazard pay? I rocked it in the net. wooohoooo!

Green Diva Meg delivers supplies to Habitat for Humanity in Detroit

Yup that’s me helping unload a gorgeous Ford F150 that we drove as part of a fleet into downtown Detroit to a Habitat for Humanity site. Detroit was hit very hard by our recent crappy economy. They are rebuilding thanks to Ford and Habitat for Humanity and so many energetic and caring volunteers. I had a blast driving with a couple from Miami who were at the event — Gigi and Giorgio, who publish a gorgeous digital driving mag called ImpulsoMag

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.
