As you will have picked up from previous posts I am keen to network with progressive Muslims, noting the green strands and traditional tolerance of a sufi approach, here are some details of the LINE picnic next sunday, hopefully I will be able to pop along.
My garden is providing tomatoes, chillis, coriander, onions, courgettes....I have now had three pizza toppings (cheese from Waitrose) from my modest production, all organic, inter cropped from raised beds....very very little work.
Zen seems to be dropping off a little not in for zazen in London for a week or two, must keep this up of course....I would encourage all of you to practice, see weblink...don't feel it is about reading, just the practice of being here alive in the world.
Please keep Sunday the 6th of August free, and join us for our upcoming annual organic picnic, for which we've always had great feedback. Please note that the August LINE meeting will be on the second Sunday of the month as usual, and hence will be a week later (13th).
The London Islamic Network for the Environment (LINE) invites you to:
ORGANIC PICNIC GET-TOGETHER: FOOD, FUN & FRIENDS
Date: Sun 6th August 2006
Time: 1.45pm to 5pm
Venue: Regents Park, London (see below for directions*)
Come to Regents Park for a gathering of ethical eating tied up with stimulating conversation in a relaxed environment. Just bring some organic/ethical vegetarian food and/or soft drink to share and be part of a growing movement of socially and ecologically conscious people in what is becoming an annual gathering, now in its third year running. Feel free to invite your friends and family. This event is open to anyone regardless of beliefs, and will take place whatever the weather.
To find your local organic food retailer, here is a helpful website: http://www.organicfood.co.uk/shopping/index.html - Where possible, please support independent retailers and/or alternative food networks such as local farmers markets & organic box schemes. Together we can release the corporate grip that places profit above values that we hold most dear, and we can have a good time whilst we're at it. There will also be a chance to take part in a short quiz on global and ecological issues (optional).
