I am proud to take part in Blog Action Day Oct 16, 2011 www.blogactionday.org

Welcome to the US Student Life announcements and news blog interface, which is also an extension of the US Mulgrave eFolio: TheMulgraveCitizen @ https://pln.mulgrave.com/mulgravecitizen

This site is home to all your news and alerts about student happenings, resources and opportunities for citizenship, service, CAS and social good throughout the year. You will get an email at the start of each school week with a link to the latest Student Life post. You are also encouraged to sign up and subscribe to the TMC by email or RSS feed (such as iGoogle or Google Reader, for example). By doing so, you will receive the full text posting in your inbox/reader as soon as it is published, rather than receiving just a link via email. You will also receive any additional alerts about other student life and school happenings. The Mulgrave community can also keep up-to-date on TMC news by following the Mulgrave Twitter account: @MulgraveSchool.

Did you know that poverty is the leading cause of homelessness in Canada. And if poverty was a social network it would be twice the size of Facebook ow.ly/6Z6aO . The Sixth Annual Homelessness Action Week will be October 10 – 16, 2011. Communities and organizations throughout Metro Vancouver, BC and the Yukon organized events to mark Homelessness Action Week. Learn about the causes of homelessness. Volunteer to help make a difference.


WORLD FOOD WEEK! Our food system is broken. Get involed in the club Hungry for Change to find out more or check out @AidAction’s #HungerFree campaign Oxfam’s GROW CAMPAIGN. Support a food system, from plot to the plate, that is fair and sustainable:

WHAT ARE LAND GRABS? A significant part of the broken food system relates to current trends in global land grabs from the poor:

BUY LOCAL! The local food movement is taking the world by storm, as more people learn about the numerous benefits of eating locally.What exactly is local food? Is it hype? In a word, no. It’s grown nearby, and supports your local economy. It tastes better because your food is often harvested on the day of purchase. It’s healthier, as local crops are designed to taste good rather than spend weeks in transit and on store shelves. Plus, eliminating that long trip fights climate change. If you’re interested in learning more about sustainable farming practices, there are plenty of online resources — and even mobile apps — that can make eating environmentally sustainable food easy. In honor of World Food Day (Oct. 16), Mashable is participating in Blog Action Day, which is seeking to create an online global conversation about food issues. We’ve chosen to contribute by sparking a discussion of local farming. We hope this post opens your eyes to ways you can connect with the local food movement, by making your daily food consumption more environmentally and economically sustainable. Check out Wholeshare to find out how you can connect.
