Celebrate International Mother Earth Day by joining farmers and community members around a long table brunch. The food will be focused on locally and organically sourced ingredients. There will be multiple courses and plenty of pastries. Your ticket includes brunch appetizers, bottomless coffee, and a seated dining experience at our long table. The location is secret and will be shared the day of, to those who have pre-purchased tickets.
Proceeds from the event will be donated to Union of Concerned Scientists. UCS maintains a national network of nearly 17000 scientists who believe “rigorous analysis is the best way to understand the world’s pressing problems and develop effective solutions to them.” UCS’s findings and statements are frequently quoted by major news sources; they have become a recognized and respected voice of environmental advocacy. Their work focuses on clean energy solutions, global warming, and the puzzles of large-scale food production. UCS’s testimony has been instrumental in several pieces of important green legislation.
Community Partners and Farmers:
What is Mother Earth Day?
Mother Earth Day recognizes that “the Earth and its ecosystems are our home” and that “it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth.” The term Mother Earth is used because it “reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit”. The Earth revolves around her axis in one day: the Moon orbits around the Earth in one month (29 1/2 days); the Earth orbits around the Sun in one year. We experience each of these cycles in the alternating rhythms of day and night, waxing and waning, summer and winter. The Earth/Moon/Sun are our inner circle of kin in the universe. We know we are in relation to them at all times by the dance of light and shadow as they circle around one another.
