You're invited to the Honey Bee Hoedown, The Agricultural History Project's Annual Harvest Dinner to celebrate community, agriculture, and the fall harvest on Saturday, November 9, 5:30pm - 10:00pm at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds outside Watsonville. Tickets are $60 purchased by November 5. "Our theme this year is Honey Bee Hoedown and we're featuring exhibits from the Pacif Crest Apiaries and Wall Bee Hive on the importance of bees in food production - a timely topic! We have a lot of interest in the wonderful prizes in the raffle and the auctions, especially the weekend for 6 at a Pajaro Dunes Beach House and a Ghost Hunt and Dinner at the Tuttle Mansion," said Bridget Smith, co-organizer along with Sharon Feuerborn for the event this year. Bluegrass music by Sage Brush Band will kick off the party at 5:30pm and at 7:00pm Ken Schwan of Monterey Bay Caterers will be serving up a gourmet dinner featuring several entrees with all the trimmings! Festivities include the raffles, a fabulous silent auction, and an exciting live auction featuring the entertaining Terry Medina as auctioneer - you won't want to miss the traditional auction calling mixed with comedy. "This is our most popular event of the year. Everyone always has fun and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxing," said John Kegebein, Director of the Agricultural History Project. Prizes in this year's auction include the weekend for 6 at a Pajaro Dunes Beach House, the Ghost Hunt and DInner at the Tuttle Mansion, a wild game dinner for 8, and a 4-H Team to do your favorite honey-do projects! The Harvest Dinner is an annual fundraising event for the Agricultural History Project.

We Can Rebuild You

International Earth Day—Mother Earth Day

Every April 22, humanity celebrates International Mother Earth Day and Earth Day. As more than a billion people participate in Earth Day activities every year, Earth Day has become the world’s largest civic observance. The massive concern to build right relations between humanity and the living being we call Earth is evidence of humanity’s love of the Mother. In 2009, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed April 22 International Mother Earth Day, with a significant resolution affirming “the interdependence existing among human beings, other living species (the kingdoms—mineral, plant, animal and human) and the planet itself, the Earth which we all inhabit.” The Earth is our home. Celebrating Earth Day helps us define new emerging processes (economic, social, political) focused on the well-being of the kingdoms. Through these, humanity seeks to raise the quality of life, foster equality and begin to establish right relations with the Earth. We dedicate ourselves to bringing forth balance and a relationship of harmony with all of nature. Learn about planting a billion trees (the Canopy Project); participate in 1.5 billion acts of green. Disassociation (toward Earth) is no longer viable. We lose our connection to life itself. Participation is viable—an anchor, refuge and service for all of life on Earth. Visit earthday.org; harmonywithnatureun.org; and un.org/en/events/motherearthday for more information. From Farmers Almanac, “On Earth Day, enjoy the tonic of fresh air, contact with the soil, companionship with nature! Go barefooted. Walk through woods, find wildflowers and green moss. Remain outside, no matter the weather!” Nature, Earth’s most balanced kingdom, heals us. The New Group of World Servers is preparing for the May 3 Wesak Buddha Taurus solar festival. We prepare through asking for and offering forgiveness. Forgiveness purifies and like nature, heals.
