Salam and Peace,
Green Zabiha is a member of the Farmer To Consume Legal Defense Fund, a legal watchdog that fights for the rights of small farmers across America. Increasingly regulations are being put in place which could seriously affect the ability for small farmers to survive, it should be no surprise that many of these are being pushed by big Agri-business and if they get their wish our food choices will be severely affected. Stand up for small farmers! One of the most disturbing provisions of this bill is the ability for the government to conduct random, warrentless searches of business records of farmers. I don’t even think they can do that for drug dealers. I know many of you are familiar with ‘action alerts’, but usually they are about civil liberties, etc. While those are very important, we should also take part in these types of alerts because they affect all of us, and if passed they can have very significant implications for us moving forward.
Please read the below action alert and spread the word, additionally we’d encourage as many people as possible to join FTCLDF to support their important work.
Salam and Peace,
For any of you even close to the Bay Area, we’d really recommend taking time out to attend these seminars by Hakim Archuletta. He is a natural, homeopathic healer and a very engaging speaker, regardless of your religious affiliation or slant, they will undoubtedly be very valuable and thought provoking sessions. We also recommend his DVD set from Meccacentric Natural Health and the Islamic Tradition.
We hope the organizers record it so we can all benefit!

How to Treat Your Family and Friends for Common, Acute Conditions

Sidi Hakim offers an intensive course teaching the basic principles of homeopathy, understanding an acute illness, injury, emotional crisis, how to take a patient’s case, how to find the correct remedy and how to administer the correct dosage.
Conditions to be discussed include flus, common colds, respiratory infections, sore throats, ear infections, teething, fevers, nausea and vomiting, allergic reactions, acute emotional trauma, and first aid. A special emphasis will be given to a thorough understanding of when a condition requires professional care. Creating a home remedy kit and a community pharmacy collective will be addressed.
Dates: Saturday, June 27th and Sunday June 28th

Welcome to the updated website. As you can see we still have some more content to post, and we’re working on that as we speak.
We also wanted to inform you that we have in stock grass fed beef and lamb, and pastured poultry and will update the market area to allow you to place orders. We are still a week away from that, but look forward to providing a convenient means for everyone to place their orders.
And within two weeks we will have a new line of products that we are very excited about and will provide more information on shortly!
We recently had the opportunity to meet Michael Pollan, the author of must read books The Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food. He mentioned that he is compiling a catalog of ‘food wisdom’s’ from various traditions. I said I’d try to spread the word, collect the responses and send back to him.
So do you think you could help out? Do you have any sayings/wisdom/aphorisms regarding food that you remember you mother, grandmother, elders etc say? It doesn’t have to be from ancient times, or be profound, it just needs to be some wisdom that has to do with food.
For example, one he mentioned that was both relatively recent and straightforward was a grandmother used to say ‘the whiter the bread, the sooner you’re dead’. Highlighting the low nutritional value of white bread from refined flours!
It’d be great if we could put together some thought into this and submit something from whatever tradition you may have access to African American, Kashmiri, Arab, Afghan etc., so help out and send us over what you got. Perhaps you can ask some elders to find out if they have anything that comes to mind, it could be an interesting exercise!
