2009 Theme: "Harvest the Power"

In 2008, our intent was to plant the seeds in people's minds. Creating an awareness and an appreciation to the growing demand and the decreasing availablity of affordable power, energy and wholesome pure foods.

This year we think it is time to "Harvest the Power". There is power all around us, in the air, water, earth and from the sun.

There is also the power within us, the power to effect change and make it happen!

2008 Theme: "Growing the Solutions"


Last year our intent was to plant the seeds in people's minds. Creating an awareness and an appreciation to the growing demand and the decreasing availablity of affordable power, energy and wholesome pure foods.

This year we would like to offer solutions. We believe that the solutions are "growing", from the seeds that we planted, in both our minds and the earth.
