“Best Practices for Sustainable Communities: Lessons from the Golden Temple.”

Join us on Wednesday, April 12, 7 pm  for a screening of a documentary entitled

A Table for Sixty-Thousand

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBTP20vDfJ4

Filmmaker Teresa Singh will be on hand to discuss her project, the practice of “Langar” and its various implications for community building.

Teresa and her husband, Prof. Jasprit Singh, have led groups of University students during several recent trips to Amritsar to study the lessons in sustainability that the Shri Harmandir Sahib (the Golden Temple) has to offer. They have produced a documentary film entitled, “A Table for Sixty Thousand”

At the ‘Golden Temple’ everyday on average 60,000 (and rising) vegetarian meals are prepared and shared by visitor at no cost !

Over 400 years ago the idea of basic nutrition as a birthright was introduced and implemented in The Punjab. Today this practice, called “Langar,” is responsible for over one million free meals every day in the state of Punjab and not only provides nutrition to the poor and rich, but also provides a stage where people from all walks of life can come together, and a space where people can learn how to cook a nourishing meal.

Bring a dish to share in the spirit of the “Langar” tradition!

What’s YOUR story?? March 8th at 7pm

Join us for a fun, interactive workshop with Judy Pearce  on  Wed, March 8 at 7 pm — “Everyone Can Write” What’s YOUR story??

Judy Pearce is a long time Carp resident and  freelance writer with a focus on horses and history. In the 1980s she had a weekly column, “Equestrian” in the Santa Barbara News-Press. During the 1990s her history column, “Montecito Scrapbook” was published in the Montecito Journal. Judy has also written for Montecito Magazine, Santa Barbara Magazine, and international horse publications, Western Horseman and The Western Horse. Judy will share her  belief that anyone can write. “I am an ‘accidental writer’. It all started simply because in 1980 Judy Enersen, co-owner of the Carpinteria Herald, asked me to write an article for her publication, California Horsemen’s News,” Judy explains

There will be a short writing exercise, so attendees are asked to bring paper and a writing implement.

You are also welcome to bring a friend and, as is our tradition, bring a dish to share or a bottle of wine.

Write On! Hope to see you there.
