This Friday, May 13 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op will be hosting an Evening With Visionaries at the Co-op Community Learning Center on 1914 Alhambra Blvd.
Hear from two people who are working to help plant urban forests and build better communities:
Andy Lipkis, President of TreePeople, an environmental non-profit organization dedicated to growing a sustainable future for Los Angeles (well, he’ll be there on DVD, anyway); and
Ray Tretheway, of the Sacramento Tree Foundation, a local group dedicated to empowering people to plant protect, and learn about trees, and aiming to plant 5 million trees in the Sacramento region.
The $15 admission includes a vegetarian, organic supper featuring local produce (at 6:00 p.m.). A group discussion will follow the speakers at 8:00 p.m.
To pre-register, please visit www.sacfoodcoop.com, or call the Co-op Customer Service Desk at (916) 868-6399. Proceeds of the event go to benefit One Farm at a Time and the Sacramento Tree Foundation.
