Our Emerald City Green Entrepreneurs Training is going strong—here’s some highlights of our first three weeks.

We are finally starting our new Emerald City Green Entrepreneurs Program—a collaboration between Earth Activist Training, our program that combines permaculture, spirit and activism, and Hunters Point Family, which runs programs for youth and young adults in Bayview Hunters Point, the San Francisco neighborhood with the highest rates of poverty, crime and violence...In the afternoon, we have our first real hands-on project, starting seeds and making soil mix. And they all dive into the work—once we hand out gloves! Actually putting your hands into the dirt will be another long-term learning process. I find it enormously sweet to watch these big, burly guys so seriously and delicately planting the tiny seeds of collards.

Our Kickstarter campaign for The Fifth Sacred Thing movie is over—and thanks to the incredible, generous support we’ve received, we did fantastically well, raising $76. 327 from 1431 donors! That puts us in the top fifty of most-funded Kickstarter campaigns.

The Fifth Sacred Thing shows us a vision of a positive, resilient future, where at least one city has achieved environmental balance and social harmony. Applying the ethics and principles of permaculture to the production of The Fifth Sacred Thing will embody the message of the film and generate ecological, social and financial returns.

When we crunched the numbers, we realized that our original Kickstarter goal was too low. We’re grateful to have reached it, and it’s probably just enough to let us squeak by, but in reality we need more to keep the project moving forward in a way that’s sustainable. That’s why we’ve upped it our real goal of $100,000. And we are deeply grateful for anything you can contribute to that end.

Lammas morning—I woke up and saw that during the night we’d reached our first funding point on our Kickstarter campaign for The Fifth Sacred Thing ritual.

“Western culture” itself is multicultural. Breivik blew up his buildings with explosives invented in China. He counted his dead in Arabic numerals. The media is full of strident voices telling us greed and prejudice and self-righteous, self-justifying bile are not only okay, they’re patriotic! Breivik’s horrific murders were a clear message about where that thinking leads—to the death of innocents. We need strong voices now to raise up a powerful countercry, to say that all of us have value, that we’re here on earth to take care of one another, to proclaim that every difference of background and culture and perspective is a gift. We need a vision of how we might live in such a world—for if we can’t imagine it, how can we create it?

So—would you be willing to help us in this way? Go to our Kickstarter page and become an active backer, for even as little as dollar? As I write, we have almost 800—we’d love to get over 1000. If everyone on this list gave even the price of a cup of coffee—hopefully organic, shade-grown and fair-traded, of course—we’d be in the top echelon of Kickstarter projects as far as numbers of active backers.

We believe the world needs a powerful vision of a positive future here on earth. Once we might simply have told the tale around the fire. Two decades ago, I wrote it as a novel. Now, as the world becomes every more visual, we want to make it a film.
