On Friday, July 1st, from 5:30-7:30 pm you can Be the Change and Support the magic of Local Food. Please join us as Kenny Graham and JalaBlu kick off a weekend of Anusara Yoga bliss with a charity fundraiser benefiting Guidestone. Guidestone is a 501 (c) 3, non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the local food economy. Guidestone serves farmers, landowners, educators, youth, and community members in the Upper Arkansas River Valley by providing farm based education programs and by supporting and growing the capacity of agricultural resources to help ensure a secure agricultural future for the region. Two Buena Vista farms, Weathervane Farm and Cottonwood Creek Dairy, currently work with Guidestone and benefit from their work in the community. All proceeds from this class will be donated. The suggested donation is $10. Let’s unite as a community, fill up the Buena Vista High School Gym, and send ripples of support to this valuable organization working to keep local food production thriving in our community.
When Kenny Graham suggested doing a charity fundraiser with jalaBlu here in Buena Vista, CO, my heart gravitated towards wanting to do what I could to support my friends at Weathervane Farm and Cottonwood Creek Dairy in their efforts to continue to serve the community with fresh local food. Currently these farms exist on a beautiful piece of farmland, generously made available by the current landowner, just outside of town. Though these farms are committed to staying in the greater community regardless of the specific circumstances of the property where they currently farm, it is my dream that this property be preserved as a farm for the community into the future. Though the fate of this property is uncertain, by helping to build the capacity of organizations like Guidestone the important work of farmland preservation will someday be possible in our community and our farmers will root to rise and find long term stability on farmland. I have no doubt that magic and miracles do happen, so please forward this blog to anyone of interest and help support an amazing cause full of organic extension. Say YES to Local Food and Guidestone and help this vision happen!
"My intention for 2011 is 'BELIEVE' and within this word comes so much MAGIC! I 'BELIEVE' that jalaBlu and Kenny Graham will invite abundance on July 1st and perhaps the uncertainty of the land mentioned above will be preserved by Guidestone so both farms (Weathervane Farm and Cottonwood Creek Dairy) can continue to farm on that particular land within Buena Vista, CO."
