Spokane New Economics Summit

Posted on behalf of; Joel Williamson (Google Drive) [joelw99@gmail.com]

Hello permies!

I wanted all of you to know about the Spokane New Economy Summit coming up on April 5-6th. Attached is the poster and you can get more information as well as register at www.INWNewEconomy.com. Join us to take part in shaping the future!

The Spokane New Economy Summit seeks to promote ideas and strategies for a stronger and more sustainable regional economy and to catalyze support for action.

The Inland Northwest is as an idyllic place to live and work. This reality is being slowly discovered by those outside the area, and we find ourselves on the verge of an economic revitalization. The time is now to prioritize a triple bottom line of profit, people and planet in order to ensure that future development will be lasting and equitable. Many in our community already recognize the value of these key concepts and are putting them into practice. We seek to bring together students, small business owners, farmers, and community members to discuss new ways of thinking about and participating in our economy.  We hope to facilitate discussions on topics ranging from sustainable agriculture to community banking to economics education; and to create space for networking, collaborating, and building momentum towards a more prosperous, inclusive, and resilient Spokane.

Hi all, I want to let people know about this GMO campaign happening in Spokane this Wednesday Jan 23 and other dates on the West side, detailed below.  

Many GMO's are going through approval processes and could soon be showing up in ecosystems nearby, and once released may be uncontrollable. Their spread can do permanent damage to heirloom and organic foods, ...    Thanks,  Seth
