Simply Healthy Fair Website Online!

It is a rainy day here in Bloomington. We are very fortunate to have such abundance when so many in the world do not have access to clean water and in many places, even in some of our own communities, their is pressure from corporations to privatize water. In many communities around the globe, privatization has dealt a sad blow to the people, and a great financial boon to the corporations. Water privatization is seen as a global threat. In October the Center for Sustainable Living and WILF will host an event to discuss water. I will post more on that as the information comes my way. Green Dove Network will be updating their Water page which has information about local water and links to national and global water information. World Water Resources and Water News

This is Green Drinks Day and SIREN, a project of the Center for Sustainable Living (CSL) will be making a presentation. More is posted to the Local Food Bloomington Blog
