Stop the Spray benefit concert

We had a wonderful weekend filming at the Harmony Festival on Saturday (segments coming soon) and at the Stop the Spray event on Sunday in Sausalito, California.

We interviewed legendary musicians Bob Weir, Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur and so many more...
The event was hosted by the famous movie star Peter Coyote and was a benefit to help raise awareness for stopping the spraying of toxic pesticides over populated areas.

Not sure if you were aware of the plan to spray plastic nano-spheres filled with fertility disrupting chemicals all over the bay area (and other parts of the U.S.), in a futile attempt to eradicate a little brown apple moth - but that's what some folks in our government have it in their minds to do.

Just to let everyone know, the spraying that occurred a few months ago in Santa Cruz and Monterey caused 600 people (mostly kids) to develop chronic asthma - where previously they were perfectly healthy!

True to our Organic Living with the Hippy Gourmet form, we take a positive perspective on all of this and celebrate our right to live a pesticide free existence!

It was a great day out on the Marin waterfront there, fantastic music, insightful speakers, and most of all, a truly blissful and connected community of people who came together to support a great cause!

Watch the full video to learn more about this pressing topic and which organizations are in your area who are watching out for your interests!

Peace, Love and Organics,
Your Hippy Gourmet family
