Sustainable Fairfax Community Council: Remembering Our Ancestors
When: Saturday, October 21, 2pm-4pm
Where: Sol Studios, 12 School St Plaza, Ste 12E, Fairfax
With Halloween coming and the Celebrations of the Day of Dead we will take the time to remember ancestors. In particular we will consider what we have learned from our families about sustainable practices as well as what we need to unlearn.
Please join us for this Community Council honoring our traditions. Through sharing our stories in a safe space of deep listening we open to the possibility of creative solutions born from inspired hearts and minds. All are welcome to attend.
**Please bring photos of loved ones to put on our Alter table.**
Our Council methods are based on ancient practices and the Way of Council developed at the Ojai Foundation.

Speaker: Director Louis Fox of Free Range Studios
We will show 5 short films from the Story of Stuff series. We are thrilled to have Director Louis Fox of Free Range Studios join us after the movie for a discussion about the films.
If you are not familiar with Story of Stuff, it all began about 7 years ago when Annie Leonard and Free Range Studios put together a 20-minute movie about the way we make, use, and throw away Stuff. It went viral on the internet, unleashing a torrent of pent-up demand for honest conversation about the impacts of our consumer-crazed culture on people and the planet. Since then It has been viewed more than 40 million times worldwide.
From this the Story of Stuff Project emerged, including, among other things, more films that address different topics brought up during the original film.
