    Jan/Feb: Meat & Veggies, Tampa Fl, Arvada Co and more...

     

     

    Food choices are something fundamental you can control about yourself: what you take into your body. When so many other things are out of control and your influence over climate change - all these much larger issues - it's very hard to see any results or any progress. But everybody can see progress around food. ― Michael Pollan

    Share The Gift Of Being Savvy: Donate A Membership Forward or  Gift A Friend

    Did you know that 61% of those who come to our nonprofit want to be around more like-minded women? That 28% feel isolated but want to learn? Or 32% want to make a difference, but just aren't sure how?   

    Our nonprofit erases these barriers. We offer an encouraging community for women to learn and create change. We are fulfilling a missing puzzle piece in the movement.  Will you help us reach out to others? 

    For the same amount of one fancy coffee a month, you can: Donate a Membership Forward or Gift A Membership to a Friend.  What does this mean?

    How To Engage Your Inner Activist: It's Time

    What the heck is an activist anyway?

    "If I say the word activist you might have the image of people hanging banners, or chaining themselves to trees or screaming at authority figures or living in tents. Those are all activism. Or they can be.  But a lot of activists have never done any of these things. 

    So, what is the definition of activism? I think that really it is noticing something that you think needs to be changed and using your influence to change it."

    Elizabeth Saunders brings delightful humor to understanding today's activism (a word often followed by "oh, I am not that!) in out Talk Savvy to Me video.

    Making Real Food Cool

    This is the first of four videos from our annual Talk Savvy To Me event where we celebrated our volunteers and shared hot topics from powerful speakers.  We hope you can attend our next Talk Savvy To Me in late 2018.  

    Making Real Healthy Food Cool For Kids:

    Donna Morin, M.Ed, is a nutrition and lifestyle coach trained in mindfulness-based stress reduction. She began her practice after diet and lifestyle changes resolved her own health troubles, but her biggest lesson so far has been recognizing that good, lasting health is about so much more than food.  

    Get ready to go on an amazing learning adventure as Donna makes food cool for kids and us as well.  Watch for the brilliant way Donna uses analogies with a  garden hose, a zoo and a circle of Barbies to bring microbiomes to light.

    May/June Happenings

     

    “I’ve always loved nature and being outdoors, and the sense that humans were doing more harm than good seeped into me like so many others and, though not an activist by any means, I began to take those many small steps to tread lightly on this Earth, live by example, and help wherever I could.

    Four years ago, I became a beekeeper and the learning curve shot up. Watching and learning about my bees gave me a holistic view of our world and how one small change – good or bad – can have such a ripple effect.”

    – Janice Sina, New Savvy Women's Alliance Member and Volunteer

     

    Here’s what we’re talking about this month:
