Focus on Energy
New Jersey has some issues regarding the energy we use. Now with the ability to choose our electric supplier we can switch away from JCP&L to greener sources. One of our Co-op members, Laura Nisivoccia, is a sales person for Viridian. Take home a brochure and find out how you can get green energy for less.
Coal Country & New Jersey
Wednesday Oct 20th - 6:30 pm
Coal Country spotlights Appalachian coal mining through the eyes of miners and activists. What is behind promises of "cheap energy" and "clean coal?" And what are the alternatives for our energy future?
After the film, Christine Guhl, a field organizer for the Sierra Club will make a 30 minute presentation about the coal and it's past and future in New Jersey. The focus of her presentation will be on the existing Hudson generating station and the proposed PurGen plant in Linden, as well as the Susquehanna-Roseland transmission lines.
Food Prep Class: Superfoods
Thursday, Oct 21st - 12 to 2 pm
Join Phyllis, a certified Holistic Health Counselor, here at the Co-op, as she teaches us how to prepare superfoods. Superfoods are vibrant, nutritionally dense foods that have recently become widely available. They offer tremendous dietary and healing potential. They include goji berries, hempseed, cacao beans (raw chocolate), maca, spirulina, bee products, and a host of others. In this workshop we will prepare delicious recipes using superfoods and discuss their health benefits, quality sources for obtaining them and where to go to learn more so you can make them a daily part of your diet.
