London Area Organic Growers

London Area Organic Growers is a group of unique and committed individuals practicing a  sustaining way of growing food. Purchasing  is good because it is fresher and requires less transportation to reach you. Transportation of food often involves boats, planes, trains, and trucks. Each of these modes contributes costs and carbon emissions. Some costs are internalized (paid for by the seller and usually passed on to you as the consumer) such as fuel, road taxes, and international tariffs (taxes on merchandise crossing borders). Other costs are externalized. Air and noise pollution, traffic and road wear, and the social impact of "outsourcing" the labor to farm and harvest food are examples of costs which may be externalized when food is transported great distances. Since no individual pays these costs they are borne by humanity as a whole. Eating local food, when possible, reduces this problem. Learn more>

Peace Every Day Initiative

Making the Commitment of Peace ~ In order that we may usher in the reign of peace, the Peace Every Day Initiative asks that each person who feels deeply connected to the process of peace on earth to make a commitment for a minimum of four years to be peace for 40 minutes or more each day, 5-7 days per week, by meditating or praying at sunrise or sunset. A meditation/prayer of 40 minutes (or longer) has been selected to honor the sacred number of 40, a number of purification. This amount of time will support each participant in experiencing a quiet mind and becoming and sustaining the vibration of peace. We create this collective vortex of peace at the time of sunrise or sunset, the two nodal times of the day in which it is easiest to go into meditation and the vibrations of peace are most effectively transmitted into the global brain. About the Initiative World Peaceâ€"the healing of the worldâ€"is achieved through a very simple principle: We Create Peace By Being Peace. It is this universal truth that has inspired the Peace Every Day Initiative, a global, collective, daily, meditation of peace. The purpose is to unite a minimum of 8,000 people, while holding the vision of 144,000 or more people, to meditate/pray by becoming the vibration of peace for 40 minutes or more each day at sunrise or sunset. This powerful thought-form of peace is enough to shift the global consciousness so that we may fully celebrate peace on earth! Learn more
