Water in CA: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly – July 23 (and lots more!)

“Live simply so that others may simply live.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

Hi everyone,

Okay, so we all know this. California has been suffering from extreme drought for years now. Here’s the question, how many of us really know enough about our local water situation and the complicated issues involved with it? And, as climate change continues, what can we expect, and what do we need to be doing about it?

By the way, did you know?

“By making one meal a week with lentils instead of beef, a family of four can save the equivalent of 17 bathtubs full of water.”
– Oxfam International, The Food Transformation: Harnessing consumer power to create a fair food future

Since this is such an important issue, Orange County for Climate Action (OCCA) asked Ray Hiemstra of Orange County Coastkeeper to come help us deepen our understanding. Thursday, July 23, please RSVP to join us for Water in California, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Additionally, we are in the initial planning stages of several local items such as getting cities on board with Meatless Mondays, making solar power more accessible, and reducing OC’s food waste. This would be a great time to jump in with OCCA’s efforts. Our next planning meeting is this week. See details and additional upcoming events at the bottom of this email.

And — don’t forget we want to hang out with you and have some fun on Thursday August 6 when we will be eating lots of yummy vegan food at the annual Living Ubuntu Veggie Grill Fundraiser. Make sure it’s on your calendar

Next email: Watch for an update on Trauma Recovery for East African Refugees in San Diego.

Thank you for being engaged,
