Slow Food UW Market Baskets! (during the academic year)
If you’re frustrated with the cost of healthy fruits and vegetables, be frustrated no more! You can have a basket of fresh healthy produce each week for ONLY $16.00!!!!!! Market Baskets are Ideal for 2-4 people for the week, approx. 20 pounds of produce. The Growing Power Market Basket is a cross between a mobile grocery store and a community supported agriculture program (CSA). The produce comes from local farms and from small-scale wholesalers, offering us the freshest produce we can find! The purpose of the Market Basket is first and foremost to provide AFFORDABLE and nutritionally diverse produce to the consumer. Second, by purchasing a basket you are helping to empower local and distant sustainable urban and rural farmers who are a part of Will Allen’s Rainbow Cooperative. If you’re interested in getting one, you have the ability, unlike in a CSA, to decide week to week whether you would like to buy a basket or not! Currently, the way to sign up currently is through our doodle link (see below) but will soon be moved to the slow food website. Sign up by Wednesday of each week and get your food on Friday! Up until the end of the growing season all the food is local, coming from Badger Rock Middle School South Madison gardens and Robert Pierce’s Farm! http://www.

5 “Habits of the Heart” for Personal & Political Wellbeing Online Workshop — Led by author, Parker Palmer
If I am not for myself, who is for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? If not now, when? – Hillel the Elder
Many of us are committed to ongoing personal growth, but not in a way that makes us self-centered and self-absorbed. We are equally committed to the common good. We know that a life well-lived includes caring for self and caring about the needs of others. In this workshop we’ll revisit the old adage, “The personal is political.” We’ll focus on developing five habits of the heart that enhance our own wellbeing and our capacity to help create a world that works for everyone. The five habits are:
1. An understanding that we are all in this together
2. An appreciation of the value of “otherness.”
3. An ability to hold tension in life-giving ways.
4. A sense of personal voice and agency.
5. A capacity to create community.
Dates & Timing: You can watch workshop videos and participate online at any time that fits your schedule. Virtual Meetings will be coordinated by Cojourneo staff. We will do our best to accommodate a variety of meeting preferences and timezones.Creating Your Own Circle: If you’d like to create your own private small group for your organization, colleagues or friends, please email as at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help you coordinate.
