Hi Everyone -
I had volunteered to make the flyer for the Raw Portland community; however,
my duties with the Raw Spirit Retreat (I'm on the core team), plus some
travel time, etc., have taken priority over this effort. I encourage all of
you who are interested in attending the Raw Spirit Retreat in Molalla, OR
from August 30-September 2 to visit our website at www.rawpsirit.net. We
would love to have a good local presence there. We are indeed planning on
posting some ride share information on the site and are researching it right
now - We have received a lot of interest in this and of course it's
something we support.
The deadline for the first Early Bird discount was yesterday, but there is
still another Early Bird discount until August 1. The price until August 1
for all 3 days, including all meals, lodging, and workshops is $355 per
person. We will have Gabriel Cousens, Victoria Boutenko, Brigitte Mars, and
many others. This is a great way to support your local raw food community!
Regarding the Raw Portland flyer, it looks like it would be at least a few
weeks before I could get to that (later June, early July) due to other
commitments, and I would be happy to do it at that time. However, if anyone
else wants to make any flyers and distribute them at any time, of course you
are all welcome. This is not limited to one person's effort: Anyone could
make flyers announcing potlucks or other raw events. I have been very happy
to have found this community over 2 years ago, to attend potlucks and to
find all the resources available through the Raw Portland website and
discussion list. I hope we can continue to support each other and all
contribute what we are able to having a vibrant raw community in Portland.
In light and health -
