Hippy Gourmet Newsletter - January'06
and Love for 2006!
May love and light reign supreme over hate and injustice everywhere,
and may the magical momentum of enthusiasm toward positive change
(especially in sustainability, organics, alternative energy and
fair trade) be our guiding force for generations to come.
The Hippy Gourmet goes Wild and Scenic!
This past weekend, the Hippy Gourmet TV Show was
featured at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival up in
Nevada City, California! The Wild and Scenic Film
Festival is the west coast's largest film festival that
focuses on everything from environmental and
political issues affecting the planet to wild and scenic
adventure films from around the world.
The Wild and Scenic Film Festival is coordinated by a
great organization called
which stands for South Yuba River Citizens League,
and is a fantastic group of people who have taken it
upon themselves to clean up the rivers and streams
and work with indigenous peoples to help return the
wildlife to areas affected by dams and development,
amongst other environmental outreach programs.
The Hippy Gourmet had six featured segments in the
film festival, including:
film festival was a great success with over 3,000 attendees and
over 80 films being screened. The best part about the festival
is that it not only takes place every year in the picture-perfect
setting of Nevada City, California, but is a traveling festival
that will soon be coming to Santa Barbara, Colorado, New York
and other cities around the U.S. The films being featured range
from animation for children to complex environmental issues, comedy
shorts about organic produce and full-length films on pressing
matters such as Chernobyl environmental catastrophe and Tibetan
struggle for freedom.
The Hippy Gourmet is proud to support
SYRCL and the Wild and Scenic film festival,
and we were honored to film an episode with them that included
some wonderful vegan and vegetarian dishes (coming soon!)
