Film Screening: "Food For Change"

Thursday, October 26, 2017 - 7:00pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell

We are proud to partner with Weaver's Way Ambler for a film screening of  "Food For Change." This feature-length documentary tells the history of the co-op movement and food co-ops today.  The movie focuses on consumer food co-ops to tell the larger story of cooperatives — their role in American history and their current efforts to create local food systems.

Part of an educational series of programs in honor of Co-op Month, celebrated annually in October across the United States.   During Co-op Month,  Wissahickon Valley Public Library in Blue Bell and Ambler, and Upper Dublin Public Library will each host an educational event with Weavers Way to inspire community discussion about food systems, fair food access and cooperative solutions to chronic food-related inequities and other issues.    

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to learn more about co-ops and their value in on our community.  Please register HERE.

Build a Better Mind: Mindfulness for Teens Workshop

Tuesday, August 1, 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Event location: 
Blue Bell

Do you feel overwhelmed with pressures from school, friends, parents, or even pressure you put on yourself, and have a hard time finding space to just BE?

Do you get stressed or anxious just thinking about all of the things you have to do?

Have you ever freaked-out about something, only to later regret how you acted?

Do you ever feel like you've got so much going on in your head that it's hard to think clearly?

What if you could slow down, find quiet, and enjoy the moment, no matter what's happening around you?

Mindfulness empowers you to be able to recognize when you're feeling stressed or out of control, and gives you the ability to move forward with compassion, focus, selfawareness, acceptance, and inner peace.

In this 4-week workshop, we'll practice:

  • Guided meditations to help you feel grounded and maintain focus and clarity during a hectic day.
  • Being able to notice and cope with strong emotions (like anger, stress, anxiety, or sadness) before they overwhelm your brain, body, and influence your actions.
  • How to apply mindfulness in your daily life, especially to help you effectively communicate with others, be able to get 'in the zone' during a game or before a test, and to create a space for you to just be YOU.

For ages 13-18 (middle & high school students). FREE. Registration required (link will register you for all four sessions). Must be able to attend all sessions. Tuesday, July 11, July 18, July 25, and August 1 @ 12 to 1 PM.
