Local to Global Life Works -
Local to Global Life Works wants YOU as a partner and ally! Local to Global Life Works is a budding project that organizes events to provide a public space for people to foster dialogue to inspire the spread of information and devising of mechanisms to build a society that promotes mental, spiritual, physical, community and environmental health. We recognize the fundamental interconnectedness between the individual and local, state, national and global communities. We aim to empower individuals to understand how they contribute to problems faced locally and globally, which therefore makes them crucial to identifying, creating  and implementing solutions to build a thriving, LIVE future for Planet Earth!  We seek any and everyone interested in learning, creating, leading workshops, hosting and attending future events, volunteering, or donating thoughts/time/tools/talents/anything to make our efforts more effective. Come join us! 

Dive! -
Dive! follows Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angeles supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food during the worst recession since the Great Depression and uncover a disturbing truth about waste in America. Dive! is equal parts entertainment, philosophy, guerrilla journalism and call to action. The film challenges us to conceive of and implement a much less wasteful way of eating and living.

Los Angeles Eco-Village -
We are a neighborhood in the built-out Wilshire Center/Koreatown area working toward becoming a demonstration of healthy urban community. Our whole-systems approach to community development tries to integrate the social, economic and physical aspects of neighborhood life to be sustainable over the long term. Eco-villagers intend to achieve and demonstrate high-fulfillment, low-impact living patterns, to reduce the burden of government, and to increase neighborhood self-reliance in a variety of areas such as livelihood, food production, energy and water use, affordable housing, transit, recreation, waste reduction and education. We also plan to convert the housing in the neighborhood from rental to permanently affordable cooperative ownership.

Thank you for your time!

Peace to you!
