Connolly’s Farmers Market In Sedona

I just finished creating this video for Connolly’s Farmers Market. I shot the footage today and finished editing it this evening.  The doors open Saturday, September 25th. If you have fruit and veggies that you would like to make available to the larger community, contact Bruce Connolly at 928-300-6586. I also put up a website for Bruce, which is located here. Helping Bruce get his dream off the ground is another step towards building community and helping Sedona and the Verde Valley produce enough organic, locally-grown food to feed ourselves. Other projects include The Sedona Community Gardens: on Ningon Facebook. I’ve also been helping spread the sustainable bug in Tucson by helping Zenhens with their website.

This year’s festival will take place Saturday, September 25th, at the Tequa Festival Marketplace. To see my coverage of last year’s event (photos and videos), go here.

Zenhens


I’m really glad that I can be a part of great projects like this one: Zenhens! Zenhens is the brainchild of Cathy Blough who lives in Tucson. Her vision? Here’s how she describes it on the new Zenhens website:

Zenhen’s goal is to produce happy, healthy backyard chicken flocks.  We believe that local foods taste better and are healthier for us and the planet. Zenhens is a local Tucson co-op group that collects eggs to sell at local farmers markets, as well as composted chicken manure that we make into compost tea.

“Our core values and theme is that as much as we produce we should strive to compost or recycle. Whether it’s our food, our clothes or our technological necessities, Zenhens is always asking how was it produced, and how will it be laid to rest?

“We believe that everyone should be paid a living wage for what they do. That to produce something someone needs, doesn’t destroy, deplete or add toxins to anyone’s environment. This isn’t always easy or cheap or give everyone immediate gratification. Our gratification is knowing that what we do we do with conscious intention. That goes for eating the foods we eat, traveling, and mindful consumption…”

What’s my role in all this? 1. Create and help fine-tune the Zenhens website; 2. Help spread the word…
