This is so important! We need as many of you as possible to join us in Washington, D.C. for the biggest Climate Change protest in our history. We need to show our President that we really care, so that he will uphold his promise to make Climate Change a priority of his second term in office. The Keystone XL Pipeline would be bringing the dirtiest oil from the Tar Sands in Canada, down to the Gulf of Mexico, crossing over some of the most fertile land and important aquifers in this country. The chance of leakage and spills is guaranteed.
I am helping to organize a bus from Long Island to Washington, D.C. on February 17th, so that we can participate in this movement as an environmental community from Long Island. Please join in! The cost of the bus is $38, and there is opportunity to help sponsor a ticket for someone who can’t afford it. Here is the link to the bus and a link for more information about the event.

Finally, Long Island will join Edible East End and Edible Brooklyn, to have their own Edible magazine! Edible Long Island will celebrate the culinary bounty, heritage and diversity of Nassau and Western Suffolk Counties, and will tell the story of what we eat and drink, season by season.
Betsy Davidson has been the one chosen to bring us this new edition of Edible, which will launch this summer, with her long history of growing food and running the children’s program at the Gateway Community Garden in Huntington. Betsy’s passion and love of the “good food movement,” will help her satisfy the mission of more than 70 Edible titles around the country, and bring Long Islanders their local story behind the foods and drinks, that make up their region, using the words and pictures of the farmers, merchants, artisanal entrepreneurs, home cooks and gardeners that feed them.
