ALL LIFE IS INTERRELATED
“It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied into a single garment of destiny. Did you ever stop to think that you can’t leave for your job in the morning without being dependent on most of the world? We aren’t going to have peace on earth until we recognize this basic fact of the interrelated structure of all reality.” (remixed from Martin Luther King, “A Christmas Sermon on Peace”)
+ Get up, get out, go volunteer on MLK Day
+ Finish reading “A Christmas Sermon on Peace”
Can you help make our 2013 dreams a reality?
In 2013, theMOVE will double our capacity, to bring 800 diverse urban youth out onto farms with us! — to experience powerful connections to fresh food, and to the labor and the land that sustain us. $15 puts a kid on the bus, $60 covers a family, $120 pays for half a class, and $300 funds the whole bus.

OCTOBER 24 — Today theMOVE had the opportunity to facilitate the discussion at Governor Patrick’s Food Day 2012 celebration, at the Haley House at Roxbury. Students from our farm trip yesterday — 8th graders from the Lilla G Frederick School in Dorchester — joined in on the meal + discussion, and they rocked the house with their reflections from our workday (in their own words, no prep). Gonçalo, a shy young man who started learning English when he immigrated from Cape Verde a year ago, shared his feelings about the hard work of farmers and farmworkers, and the need to make sure they get a fair share for their work. Other students added their thoughts about ways we can access healthier, better food in our communities. The governor, the secretary of energy + environment, the state director of child nutrition, and the commissioner of agriculture were floored — and some new understandings of our work were created among folks in the room, with these young voices leading us there. It’s been a big day for theMOVE! — easily one of the most incredible + rewarding moments of our work so far.
