Did you know that in 1986 The world’s largest solar thermal facility, located in Kramer Junction, California, was commissioned. The solar field contained rows of mirrors that concentrate the sun’s energy onto a system of pipes circulating a heat transfer fluid. The heat transfer fluid was used to produce steam, which powered a conventional turbine to generate electricity.

Crowdfunding Seminar: Raise Business Capital Using The JOBS Act

Title III Crowdfunding Regulation of the JOBS Act Seminar on Oct. 1, 2016. Sign up now!

It has been against the law to solicit funding from the general public until just this May when Title III – Crowdfunding Regulation – of the JOBS Act passed allowing us to go online and raise between $100,000 and $50 million to jumpstart or grow our business dreams. It is estimated that entrepreneurs will raise up to 3.2 Trillion Dollars by 2020!

“The Principles of Crowdfunding and How To Raise Capital Using The JOBS Act”

I am writing to invite you to an in-depth seminar on Saturday, October 1st from 10 am – 2 pm with a light lunch catered by GoodOnYa© Organics, Encinitas.

You will walk away with true enlightenment on how to raise money for your business. I will update this post with a map to the meeting room in Encintias, or just sign up and receive an automatic link.

We have 4 major speakers: 

Amy Wan, Esq., Securities Attorney specializing in Crowdfunding law and partner at Crowdfunding Lawyers. 

Ash Kumra, Author, speaker & entrepreneur and national authority on the Crowdfunding process.

Kris Buchanan, Olympic Athlete and founder of the first B-Corporation in the organic food industry in Encinitas, GOODONYA Cafe & Deli.

Matt Morrison, Multi-dimentional business man, leader in for-profit as well as non-profit, and an educator.

It is estimated that Crowdfunding will inject close to $65 Billion into the global economy in 2016, and over $3.2 Trillion by 2020. The Crowdfunding industry has raised capital for millions of individuals from college students to small business owners, to artists and filmmakers, to conscious food purveyors, to the next big tech explosion. 

Anything is possible!

2. The Agenda: AGENDA-CrowdVesting-Media.pdf

The purpose of producing the seminar is to support small business growth in America, create jobs, and allow benefactors to contribute to the success of other people’s lives. 

The Producer: Jerri Nachman

I am a member of the North County Eco-Alliance (NCEA) and designed and built this WordPress website last year. Also a member of Conscious Capitalism San Diego, a group of conscious business owners who are for-purpose, for-benefit, for-profit entrepreneurs.

You may know I have been a marketing director in the securities industry since 1999. Until the JOBS Act was signed into law in April of 2012, just us regular folks could not raise investment capital to either start or grow our own businesses. Now we can. Let’s do it together!

Looking forward to seeing you there! Any questions, please contact me. You can also forward this post to anyone you know would benefit from it.

The free, day-long event celebrating and honoring the Earth and the wisdom of our ancestors will feature the interactive Climate Ribbon project, the presentation of several traditional indigenous ceremonies and all culminating in the closing drum circle featuring the “World Drum”, which has traveled to over 300 countries to date.

Unite, Cooperate & Heal

The world drum’s message to “unite, cooperate and heal” will be heard from every corner of 2.75 acre field, from the Community Circle to the Pavilions and Sustainability Plaza where over 130 exhibitors will offer information, experiences and demonstrations on the newest green products and technologies.EcoFest Collage

The festivities will open with live music by local “shift rock” band, Barnwell Shift, whose Living Tea Brewing Company will also be on hand in the Green Cuisine Pavilion. Other local musicians, Hullabaloo and Lee Coulter will follow a welcome from Mayor Gaspar and County Supervisor Dave Roberts.

Global Climate Ribbon Wall Comes to San Diego, launching it at EcoFest Encinitas on Sunday, May 15th.

Attendees will be able to browse the latest green cars from BMW, Ford, Mazda and others at the Eco car show and tour an off-grid tiny house before adding their ribbon expressing what they ‘most cherish and stand to lose from climate change’ to the Climate Ribbon project, which kicks its 2016/17 San Diego tour off at EcoFest

This year’s zero-waste event will raise the bar for eco-friendly events in the area, requiring exhibitors and attendees alike to ‘take their trash home with them’.

In an effort to encourage carpooling, EcoFest organizers have also added a $10 per car on-site parking fee, and those who show proof of arriving by bike or mass transit will be entered into a raffle to win a GoPro.

Free parking will still be available on Saxony Rd and a $5 discount has been made available to those who pre-register at www.ecofestencinitas.org.


World Climate Ribbon on Display at EcoFest Encinitas

Climate Change Ribbon Wall To Be Displayed on May 15

The Climate Change Ribbon Wall to Be On Display @ EcoFest, Sunday, May 15, 2016

Tekamuk Energy, Wipomo and the North County Eco Alliance (NCEA) have partnered to bring the global Climate Ribbon project to San Diego, launching it at EcoFest Encinitas on Sunday, May 15th.

EcoFest Encinitas, held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Coastal Roots Farm at 450 Quail Gardens Drive, will be it’s inaugural stop in San Diego before it goes on to tour earth festivals in the region for the remainder of this year and into 2017. EcoFest attendees will be invited to write what they cherish most that Climate Chaos threatens to wipe away: the Gulf Coast, next year’s harvest, the future of our children’s children, the bees, clean air, water are just a few examples.

Act on Climate Change nowThe Climate Ribbon project, which has been referred to as the AIDS quilt of Climate Action, began in New York City in the fall of 2014 at the UN Climate Summit. Since then, it has traveled to cities across the US and most recently appeared in France for the Paris Climate Summit at the end of November. Collectively, these ribbons compose a kind of “people’s treaty,” inspired in part by Northeastern Native American quahog and whelk shell wampum belts that signify the mutual exchange of trust that takes place when commitments are made between peoples.

Tekamuk Energy, owned and operated by the Mesa Grande Band of Mission Indians, chose EcoFest Encinitas as the kick-off for the San Diego Climate Ribbon tour in support of this year’s focus on celebrating the wisdom of our ancestors and their respect of nature.

“Rather than being in a constant power struggle against nature, our ancestors understood how to work within the set boundaries before them and out of a spirit of respect for their home and future generations came to know how the resources could be used for their survival,” said Virgil Oyos, Chairman for Mesa Grande.

Volunteers from Tekamuk Energy will install the multi-colored Climate Ribbon walkway between EcoFest’s ‘Community Circle’, where traditional ceremonies like the Eagle dance for Global Peace and World Healing will be performed, and the ‘Sustainability Plaza’, where businesses and organizations offering information and services on the newest technologies will be available.

“The installation of the Climate Ribbon walkway at EcoFest is a perfect example of what we can accomplish when we all work together towards a common goal,” said Sandy Atkinson, Vice President of the NCEA, organizer of EcoFest Encinitas.

Ms. Atkinson added that nearly 400 students have already written their Climate Ribbons. “We are so thrilled to be involved in bringing this global project to the San Diego region with partners Tekamuk Energy and Wipomo.”

The Climate Ribbon project was first introduced to the NCEA by Kalli Sorensen of Seaside Sisters, who added her ribbon to the rainbow of commitments to create a healthy and sustainable planet at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City, Utah (see photo). Seaside Sisters will begin writing their Climate Ribbons at the EcoFest Kickoff reception and environmental film screening series of “This Changes Everything” on May 5 at the Seaside Center in Encinitas. Tickets are $10 and will be available for purchase at the door. For more information, visit www.ecofestencinitas.org.
