September Events of Interest

From: Victoria M.
Sent on: Sunday, September 6, 2009 11:44 PM
Hello Everyone!
Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful holiday weekend!

I?m emailing some events to you rather than setting them up as a meet up because they are posts from other organizations and open to the general public. Thought you might like to know about them.
I?ll be doing the Medicinal Plant walk on Sunday the 20th, if anyone would like to join me! : )

P.S. Details are still in the works but save Nov 8th for brunch at Evolution Caf? in Florence and hike at Holyoke Range State Park.

These will all be posted on the Calendar.

We encourage everyone to be adventurous and prepare a raw, organic, unprocessed vegan dish for 8 people valued at least for $10. Please bring labeled utensils and a recipe with your name on it, the source, quantities and instructions, so we can use them in the newsletter and website. For ideas see Recipes on or google YouTube raw recipes.
If it's impossible for you to prepare a dish, please click here to purchase a $10 meal ticket and I will buy and prepare food for you.
Before coming to the Dinner Speaker Series, please write your recipe with these guidelines:
So others can also make your delicious dish by finding it on the RNEC/OHS Websites
1. Title of Dish 2. Your first and last name ie name of person who prepared the dish.
3. Source of where the recipe came from in order to give author credit.
4. Special equipment needed (if any) dehydratr, food procesor, vitamix, spirooli etc.
5. Specific amount of ingredients used. Many people need to know quantities to replicate the recipe. Only recipes with specific quantities/measurements will be posted on the web site. 6. Circle in red any ingredient that is not organic, not processed, not vegan and not raw. Many people, especially those with cancer and other diseases will become very ill if they eat food that does not follow these guidelines. To confirm that produce is organic, it must be marked with a number beginning with 9. The number on conventional ie produce that has been sprayed or grown in polluted soil, begins with a 4. The number of genetically modified (GMO) vegetables begins with a 3 (many of these are modified by adding animal products to them and cause extreme allergic reactions). Cooked produce kills all the enzymes.
7. Write the instructions on how to prepare the recipe.
Thank you.

Medicinal Plant Walk
Sunday, Sept 20th 1:00-3:00PM
Rock Meadow, Belmont
$15, Free for Children

Learn to identify healing plants in our area with Madelon Hope, Clinical Herbalist, Licensed Psychotherapist. Medicinal plants are everywhere - in our backyards, along the streets we walk, and in open spaces all around us. We will look at plants ranging from the familiar: dandelion and plantain, to the less well known: motherwort, burdock, ground ivy and mullein. You will find out which parts of the plants are used medicinally and how they support health. We will meet at the entrance to Rock Meadow, a large tract of conservation land with an abundance of medicinal plants. Join us as we identify medicinal plants at their different stages of growth.

Directions to Rock Meadow From Route 2, get off at the Route 60 exit for Arlington and Belmont Centers. Turn onto Route 60, which is also Pleasant Street, headed toward Belmont Center. Continue until you come to the third traffic light at Concord Avenue. Turn right on Concord Avenue and go up and down a large hill. At the bottom of the hill, bear left at the Colony gas station and turn left onto Mill St. You will go less than a quarter of a mile and will see a large sign on the right indicating Rock Meadow. Turn onto the road and park in a small parking lot by the entrance to Rock Meadow.
