Announcing the 2005
International Raw Foods Festival!
2005 International "Virtual" Raw Foods Festival
Nurture the Planet
Save Fuel.Save Money.Honor the Earth!
Honor the Earth this year by Staying Home (rather than traveling) & having a 2005 International "Virtual" Raw Foods Festival in your own home or community instead! Purchase tapes &/or audios from previous years' Festivals and spend the weekend sharing them with others you know! The International Raw & Living Foods Association has talks & food demos from all the great speakers/teachers & chefs from 2000 to 2004 to help make your Virtual Festival something you will long remember!
Because of mounting tensions worldwide over gas prices (car, plane, etc.) & other dwindling & exploited natural resources, the International Raw Foods Association has chosen to not host a large single event that people have to use up valuable resources (their own & the planet's) to get to this year & instead we are choosing to Honor the Earth with a different kind of Festival.
So in place of our usual Intl' Festival, we are asking the Raw Foods Movement to come together on our traditional Intl' Raw Foods Festival weekend (the third weekend in August.August 20 & 21) in a different way this year.
What does this mean?
How can You help make this happen?
SIMPLE: By YOU, yourself, hosting a small raw foods gathering of family, friends & others you might want to open your home to. Purchase one or more Virtual Raw Foods Festival Packets of past years' CDRoms &/or DVDs & share them with others. Gather together to share food & swap raw food experiences. We will post your events on our webpage & indicate whether they are open to interested others to drop by at or are by invitation only. We will also publicize the Virtual Festivals happening worldwide as you send us contact information for your local newspapers, radio & cable TV stations. Pictures of the various virtual events will then be put up on the Intl' Assoc. website after that weekend so that we can all see each others' event!
LET'S COME TOGETHER ON THE ABOVE DATES AS A COHESIVE RAW FOODS MOVEMENT & SHOW THE WORLD THAT WE CARE ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING TO IT!
LET'S USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SHINE SOME WORLDWIDE SPOTLIGHTS ON NOT ONLY RAW FOODS BUT THE PRINCIPLES THE RAW FOODS MOVEMENT STANDS FOR!
IN THE SIXTIES, LOVE-INS WERE ALL THE RAGE.
LET'S MAKE "RAW FOOD EAT-IN'S" THE NEXT LOVE-IN!
