June 23: DVD Showing – Missing Nutrients in Modern Food

Dirt Poor, Badly Bread and Improperly Prepared: Missing Nutrients in Modern Food

by John Moody

Friday, June 23, 2017

Description: 

Changing to traditional foods is about more than just WHAT foods we eat, but HOW they are raised and prepared. Since the time of our grandparents and great-grandparents, foods have lost significant amounts of their nutritional value–anywhere from one third to three quarters of their vitamin and mineral content or more! This talk will explore the depth of these nutritional losses, their causes, and the ways we get truly paleo (nutrient-dense) foods back on our plates.

BOUGHT movie online screening

I just watched this movie online.  It is currently still available for free.  It covers a variety of topics including vaccines, GMOs, glyphosate, neonicotinoids, drugs and chemical farming.  I don’t know how much longer it will continue to be available, so watch it while you still can or buy the movie!

Are you thinking about starting a medical diet but are overwhelmed with the thought of all of the cooking you will need to do, or are you already on one and having a hard time keeping up?

I am here to help!

The Vaxxed bus is coming to Eugene on June 14th.

This comes to us from a local activist.  We are including it as a service to our local members who would like to learn more about the vaccine controversy. 

There will be will a clip of Vaxxed, a clip of The Truth about Vaccines, then a panel discussion and a Q&A with Dr. Suzanne Humphries (Dissolving Illusions), Polly Tommey (Vaxxed,) and Jennifer Margulis PhD. (The Vaccine Friendly Plan).

Right now our main priority is finding people to share their stories of vaccine injury or finding people to share their experience of being healthy and vaccine free.  This includes everyone from medical professionals to mamas.  If you know anyone who is willing to “be brave” enough to share their story please have them contact me to arrange a time to be interviewed by the Vaxxed team.  Help us spread the word about this find some great people in our community who can share experiences.

Victory for Auzure Standard Farm

Thanks to all the many people who took time to write or call in a response to Sherman County’s plans to spray Azure Farm, the county weed board received 40,000 emails! They have backed off the plan to spray the organic farm with toxic herbicides.

We just went through the hearing with the county commission and the weed board and I want to thank all you loyal customers for giving your opinion. For spreading the word far and wide. Not only did it spread the word far and wide about this but it opened up a whole new level of debate about organic agriculture, organic farming…I think it’s done wonderful things. It’s given opportunity for people to hear about the benefits of organic agriculture – and healthy food – that have never had it before. Thank you so much. I will say that even thought here in the county there was lively debate, the level heads have prevailed. The county commission has now agreed to work with us on a proper weed plan.
