Save your "hide" stop pesticides!
FEARLESS FUND is a small foundation supporting grass roots environmental advocacy focusing on pesticide contamination of our food, air and water.The mantra is elimination of the profuse use of pesticides in agriculture, aquaculture, and in our communities in general, and more control over pesticide registration.Working closely with the Moby Dick Hotel and Oysterfarm, and the Independent Shellfish Growers of Washington, Fearless Fund is perhaps the only environmental organization focusing its concerns on the faddish cultural obsession with invasive non-native species that simply opens the door to more pesticide use. The Fund encourages a new way of thinking. To be more in sync with nature by understanding the evolutionary processes of nature instead of resorting to knee jerk efforts at eradication.

Feinstein had given little thought to climate change until he met a small town North Dakota farmer during a crosscountry bicycle trip in 2000. This farmer shared his deep concerns about the shifts he was seeing in weather and this conversation changed Feinstein's life. The following spring, Feinstein graduated from the University of Illinois in Chicago with a BA in Sociology and began teaching in his hometown of Evanston, IL at Rice Children's Center. More than 80% of all children attending this school were wards of the state and lived in a residential facility attached to the school. Despite the severe personal challenges these children faced, Feinstein could never shake the nagging feeling that these kids were learning little about the global challenges that would ultimately affect them in the future. After graduating from the Presidio School of Management with an MBA in Sustainable Management in 2007, he founded Climate Cycle.

Feel better. Move better. Think better. Feldenkrais®
The Feldenkrais Method® teaches, through gentle touch and directed movement, how we can improve our capacity to function optimally in our daily lives. Feldenkrais is for anyone who wants to reconnect with their natural abilities to move easily, think clearly and feel better. Learning to move with less effort improves all of one's functions and makes daily life easier. The Feldenkrais Method addresses chronic pain (such as back and neck pain), poor posture and limited mobility. And, importantly, through the Feldenkrais Method's focus on the relationship between movement and thinking, people discover that as their physical performance improves, they also experience increased mental awareness and enhanced creativity. Everyone, young and old, healthy and infirm, from athletes and artists to office workers and laborers, can benefit from the Feldenkrais Method. So, whether the goal is finding greater comfort and efficiency in working at the computer, playing with children and grandchildren, engaging in creative arts, exercising and playing sports, or enjoying a favorite pastime, Feldenkrais lessons will improve your overall well-being and performance.

Julia Field is Founder and Director of Undriving™, a non-profit organization that reduces car use by empowering people to make more conscious, active transportation choices. The innovative Undriver Licensing™ program sparks curiosity and effectively drives behavior change. Field’s own Undriving journey began unexpectedly in 2004, when she totaled her trusty 1987 Civic that would have been good for another 100K miles. Much to her surprise, she quickly discovered the many joys of living without a car - and her community involvement led to Undriving's launch in 2007. Since then Undriving has licensed over 5,000 Undrivers of all ages, and is replicating its successful program that changes the way people think about getting around.
Inspired by her experiences as a single working mother in a marginalized community Executive Director Tanya Fields created and founded the BLK ProjeK in 2009.Tanya used her experiences as an underserved, low income woman and mother to inform and enrich the work of several high profile local environmental organizations such as Mothers on the Move, Sustainable South Bronx and the Majora Carter Group. Tanya utilized her network, resources and knowledge to create the BLK Projek.
The BLK ProjeK seeks to create economic development opportunities that address food justice, environmental justice and public and mental health issues. By empowering underserved women of color through political education, beautification of community spaces, urban farming and holistic health programming, and by creating equal access to these enriching experiences for under-served women of color, we strengthen and empower our entire society. The BLK ProjeK understands that sexist policies, cycles of poverty and lack of resources in the community directly result in far too many women being unable to rise out of poverty and sustain their families.
For the last year the BLK ProjeK has run quarterly Bronx Grub community meals. They recently brought the Bronx Grub series to the BMW Guggenheim Lab with over 125 visitors in an hour span. They are currently working with Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo to create an urban farm called the Libertad Urban Farm in the Longwood community in the Bronx and have foraged an formal relationship with Wassiac Community Farm in upstate New York. They nominated for a 2011 Union Square Award and are opening a year long community led farmers market in the Bronx — the Green BLK Market which has received funding to incubate site specific healthy food vendors.

After being raised in the East Coast suburbs on Dominoes Pizza and Brady Bunch reruns, Doug Fine's method of journalistic investigation was to strap on a backpack and travel to five continents; to the nooks where the world's monied media venues weren't sending their people. These venues tended to be delighted to have a whippersnapper beam back colorful dispatches for poorlyremunerated publication as long as he didn't identify himself as an employee of said venues. Complicated insurance ramifications for torture treatment might ensue.
As a young freelancer, Fine reported in this manner for the Washington Post, Salon, U.S. News and World Report, Sierra, Wired, Outside, National Public Radio, and other venues from littlevisited jungle war zones like Burma, Rwanda, Laos, Guatemala and Tajikistan. He became a worldclass adventure writer and investigative journalist, writing culturally insightful and funny dispatches. One of these, about democracy efforts in Burma, was read into the U.S. Congressional Record.
During this time, his 20s, Fine recognized that he lived on an actual planet, and that he felt most alive while living and loving in wild ecosystems. Following this impulse in contradiction to all the suburban values with which he was raised (which can be summarized as, if you're not going to be a doctor, you can at least be a lawyer), he moved to extreme rural Alaska to see if a former suburbanite could survive away from Costco. Happiness and selfawareness were the goals. This resulted in his awardnominated first book, Not Really An Alaskan Mountain Man, a wildly humorous and meaningful adventure narrative, which is now in its third printing.
Realizing that living in sync with his ecosystem is indeed where his own inspiration and personal happiness reside, Fine for his second book decided to embark on a Hypocrisy Reduction Project, to see if he could truly live a sustainable lifestyle, rather than borrowing from Babylon to live in an ecological Zion. He moved to an obscure valley in Southern New Mexico to write Farewell, My Subaru, to quite simply examine whether a Digital Age Human can live without Petroleum but without giving up any of his Digital Age Comforts. His conclusion? He can, once he figures out how to keep the coyotes from eating his chickens, his solar panels from electrocuting him, and his vegetable oil truck exhaust from giving him a bad case of the munchies (it smells like Kung Pao chicken).
Farewell, My Subaru has been translated into Chinese, Korean, and other languages, and garnered Fine his first appearance on The Tonight Show. It debuted on the Boston Globe Bestseller List in September, 2009. Fine now travels around the world speaking about his sustainability realizations and is a regular contributor of adventure and investigative features to National Public Radio. Despite all the accolades, he still milks his goats one teat a
