Connect to sustainably produced foods
By Robin Loving Rowland
The word sustainability comes up these days in conversations as diverse as nonprofit management and food production. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which we can exist in productive harmony. Learn about a local initiative to connect consumers to producers and vendors of sustainably produced foods Sunday, May 4, at 10:30am, when Luc Monzies presents at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at Hotel Posada la Aldea on Ancha de San Antonio 15.

Connecting Consumers to Sustainable Foods

Monzies’ organization, SOL San Miguel, is growing almost two acres of vegetables on other people’s land for their store, La Bodega Orgánica, a small vegetable store located near the bus station on Calzada de la Estación. SOL San Miguel offers complete urban gardening services and has helped many homeowners produce food in San Miguel.
Monzies grew up on an organic/biodynamic farm school in France, where his grandfather helped pioneer the alternative farming movement more than six decades ago. Monzies and his family now live in an eco-compound in Cabras that aims to leave an ecologically light footprint.
Monzies recently built an earth home and harvests up to five million liters of rainwater that he uses for trees, a family vegetable garden and his burgeoning organic seedling nursery.
Many locals know Monzies for his work in co-founding the farmers’ market, co-managing it for the past four years. He is busy now co-creating a local food network with friends. Monzies’ presentation will tell consumers how to play an integral role in their food’s future.
The mission of the UU Fellowship of San Miguel is to serve the spirit as each individual understands it, to serve the educational and pastoral needs of our own community and to serve our multicultural community through actions that further social justice.
UU faith is of deeds, not creeds. There is perhaps no faith community that affirms more completely the power and potential of people to find and/or create meaning. What brings UUs together is a commitment to community. UUs know that differences need not divide us.
