1713 Project Farmhouse, GrowNYC with guest Amanda Gentile

Our guest this week on 50 Shades of Green Divas is Amanda Gentile of GrowNYC. We discuss Project Farmhouse, a beautiful new LEED certified facility, which brings farming  and sustainable education into the heart of NYC. The space contains a full kitchen, conference area, and it has a Green Hydroponic wall which contains freshly grown herbs and greens. Amanda explains the importance of this new facility, and the need to educate citizens of NYC and beyond, about healthy eating, being more sustainable and practicing the three Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle) within one’s daily routine. Changing our habits just a little bit will make Mother Nature and all Earth’s creatures breathe easier.

1711 James Cromwell- Jail Time: What’s Happening in Waywayanda and the protest of the CPV gas-fired power plant. Keep up the fight against fracking!

What’s happening in WayWayanda, NY is happening in many parts of the United States. Protests against fracking, gas-fired plants and pipelines, which are adding toxins to sacred and beautiful natural lands, with little input from the surrounding communities, is causing an uproar. There is a blatant disregard by the oil and gas industries as to the harm they bring to species and humans, who are displaced and poisoned. James Cromwell protested the CPV plant with other community members, and wound up in jail. He said “once you commit yourself to commit an act of civil disobedience, you know there will be consequences.” Tune in to find out what brought about this action.

1710 Dark Money vs. Clean Money

There is an expression “money is no object” but the truth is, it’s the main object. On this episode of 50 Shades of Green Divas we talk with Joel Solomon, author of The Clean Money Revolution: Reinventing Power, Purpose, and Capitalism.  Joel explains “We must know where our money is going, and reinvent an economy for a resilient civilization. The revolution is already underway, creating the new, ethical, and sustainable businesses that power local economies, restore ecosystems, and build social and financial equity.”
