The resulting economy would be based on small scale organic production and food processing, rather than the current large-scale food processing conglomerates.

About Organic Pastures

In 2000 Organic Pastures in Fresno became California's first raw milk dairy with certified organic pasture land and is one of the few remaining family-owned and operated dairies in California.  Organic Pastures Dairy invented and built the first and only mobile dairy barn of its kind in North America. Only organic green pasture and approved naturopathic methods are used to feed and care for the cows.  Watch Mark demonstrate how his mobile dairy barn makes his organic milk completely pasture-based on this Youtube clip:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdYQPdpaae

Manhattan, NY: TRADITIONAL SUPER FOODS: ANCIENT WISDOM, MODERN RESEARCH
with Chris Masterjohn, nutrition expert and researcher, noted for uncovering the actions of vitamin K2

Saturday 6-8 pm
First Ukrainian Church 206 E. 11th St Manhattan

Early registration highly recommended to ensure your seat!

Throughout the ages, humans have passed down the dietary wisdom allowing each generation to flourish with vital health.  Traditional peoples valued not only plant foods, but also many fats and animal foods that have largely disappeared from the American diet. Foods such as egg yolks, shellfish, coconut, butter, offal and marrow-bones have played important roles within traditional societies in promoting robust skeletal and dental health, energy, happiness and fertility.

Join us as Chris Masterjohn talks about these traditions and how modern science now confirms their wisdom, demonstrating that these foods contain vital vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients difficult to obtain from other foods. He will show how they act together to promote vibrant health and why these ancient and sacred foods need to return to their rightful place in the modern menu.

Chris Masterjohn is currently pursuing a PhD in Nutritional Sciences with a concentration in Biochemical and Molecular Nutrition at the University of Connecticut. Chris has published three peer-reviewed research papers, indexed on PubMed, and is a frequent contributor to WAPF Wise Traditions Journal and Blog as well as his own blog, Cholesterol-And-Health.com

Join us as Chris Masterjohn shares about this wisdom of traditional societies and the confirmation by modern science

Culver City, CA: What’s all the fuss about (raw) milk?
And why is the FDA saying you don’t have the right to choose what you eat?

Wednesday, 5 October 2011
The Multipurpose Room, Veteran’s Memorial Complex
4117 Overland Ave., Culver City CA 90230

6 - 9:30 pm

The nationwide demand for raw dairy products has been steadily increasing, despite the fact that strict regulations can make it difficult to find. At the same time, more small dairy farms and private buying clubs around the country (including California) are being raided and harassed, sometimes at gunpoint. Why? How has something as basic as milk become the focal point of political passions?

Rarely seen in one city at the same time, the evening’s speakers are on the leading edge of the raw milk wave. Gain a greater understanding of the issues, the politics, and the ways that raw dairy is influencing a national discussion on food rights. Don’t miss this very special event!
