Natural Capitalism & last call for Madrona Farm fundraising

Some fresh ideas for the new year...

Emerging Green Builders Victoria presents Natural Capitalism: Creating The Next Industrial Revolution
Thursday, January 7th, 7:00pm; Burnside Gorge Community Centre, 471 Cecilia Road
- 90 minute video presentation followed by discussion and social time -
Please RSVP and BYOMug. Refreshments provided. RSVP to: egbvictoria [AT] gmail [DOT] com

Natural Capitalism (1999) by Amory Lovins, L. Hunter Lovins and Paul Hawken, describes how to do business and make money without destroying the environment and the communities and people who live in it.
"Industrial Capitalism recognizes only money and goods as capital, according little value to people and nature. Natural Capitalism, on the other hand, extends that recognition to include human and natural capital. Join us to learn how investing in people and nature alongside money and goods can lead to greater prosperity and a sustainable society."
Meanwhile, Madrona Farm, our local good cause (aiming to raise a terrifying amount of money by the middle of this month to safeguard the future of its land for farming) is having one last fundraiser: Madrona Farm Benefit: a Grand Old Shindig (Co-sponsored by Share Organics)

Performers: Poets Lorna Crozier, Tim Lilburn, Carla Hesketh/Funk, and Melanie Seibert; Flamenco Guitarist Gareth Owen & Alma de EspaƱa; Island Thyme Morris Dancers; The Rabbleberries; and the Great Giffoni, Magician.

Thank you for posting about the Madrona Farm event. I see a lot of other online sources have picked it up from your blog... I think you might have received it through the Planet Earth Poetry list?

Thanks again! Every bit of promotion helps.

Hi Garth - I did receive it from Planet Earth, and have seen it elsewhere since (EcoNews being one place I can think of). I hope it's a spectacularly successful event!
