The second annual Connect the Dots: Refinery Corridor Healing Walks is a series of four walks, one each month from April through July. The walks proceed along the Northeast San Francisco Bay refinery corridor.
The walks are led by Native American elders and others in prayer, with those walking behind in conversation. Prayers for the water are conducted by Native American women at the beginning and end of each walk. Walkers stop at each refinery and toxic sites along the way for teach-ins and prayer circles. During the final mile of each walk, walkers are encouraged to envision the “future they want” beyond fossil fuels. At the end of each walk, walkers are invited to draw or write their visions on squares of muslin. These small art pieces will be sewn into a quilt. The quilts from the 2014 walks will be on display at the beginning and end of each walk.
Join the David Brower Center for its first-ever Earth Day celebration, a fun-filled afternoon of community learning opportunities, family art activities, hands-on workshops, live music, and delicious organic food–all focused on protecting and honoring the planet we call home. (more…)

The Albany Arts and Green Festival is coming up, just as the case for living more resource-lite (read water, energy) becomes ever more pressing.
Will you help us have the best table ever this year? The more people who put their heads together on something like this, the better things turn out; as a lone wolf, it’s been hard for me to learn this, but it’s true..
Whether it’s helping implement ideas for the table or being there on the day, we can really use your input and energy. See below the fold for some current ideas.
It’s all happening from 11 am to 4 pm at the Albany’s Memorial Park, 1325 Portland Avenue – (yes; the site of the beautiful Edible Landscape!) – and there will be all kinds of great things going on all day. Stay tuned for details, but this is definitely the place to be on May 3rd if you want to see positive change. (more…)
