Empty Bowls is a simple meal of soup and bread. Participants keep the bowl as a reminder of hunger in the world. Donations go to local and an international hunger relief group. An evening of good food and entertainment.

The Peace Garden is a project to help feed ourselves as well as others in need. This project will combine enjoyment of gardening with a service project. Come spend a little time getting your hands dirty with others.

Just Trade facilitates community development and empowerment by cultivating a more equitable global trade model that benefits farmers, workers, consumers, industry and the earth.

Season for Nonviolence is an international grass-roots educational, media, and community action campaign dedicated to demonstrating that nonviolence is a powerful way to heal, transform, and empower our lives and our communities.
