Global Sharing Week 2018

June 3rd-10th

 

Celebrate the social impact of sharing

The world is being transformed by sharing. And there's no better time to
discover just how much of impact it has than Global Sharing Week. Add
your sharing event to the GSW map and help us shift the focus away from
what’s wrong with the world, to what’s right with it. No event is too small,
no act of sharing too insignificant. From individuals to corporations, our
annual mass engagement campaign is the largest because it celebrates all
the wonders of the sharing economy.
 
This year's theme? Social impact.
The sharing economy is the Future of Life. As it transforms the very fabric of
society, this year we're highlighting all the good in the world brought about by
sharing. Taking place between June 3rd to 10th  Global Sharing Week events
happen all over the world. You can find and register events on our global map.
 
Where You Come In
Did you know there are over £3.5 trillion worth of idle human and physical
resources in the world – and that unlocking access to these could solve major
global challenges? So get your Global Sharing Week event on the map to give the
sharing economy movement that extra bit of momentum. 
Examples of events can include: clothes swaps, food shares, disco soups, picnics,
skills swaps, grub clubs, give and get markets, potluck dinners, bake shares, co-
working hackathons, maker fairs, reuse / recycling events – you name it. Check
our 7 awesome ways to get involved.
 
Who can join?
Anyone can register an event. As long as it unlocks access to skills, knowledge,
time, goods, food etc, it’s definitely Global Sharing Week material. So register
your event, and join the ranks of sharers putting the Sharing Economy on the
map.
 
Last year, Global Sharing Week 2017 saw over 354 events take place in 113
cities, across 34 countries on every continent! It was a tremendous success and
we reached over 5.5 million Twitter accounts. We’re confident, this year we can
do better.

There are 101 registered events.

    JERSEY CITY PLANT EXCHANGE 2018

    It's time to get dirty, Jersey City.

    Please join Kanibal & Co. at Corgi Spirits on Sunday, June 3rd from 12:00 - 3:00PM for the first annual JERSEY CITY PLANT EXCHANGE.

    WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

    Bring one to three plants to trade (pest free/ bare root or potted). Please label them in advance with as much information as possible (for example: plant name, preferred light conditions, etc). This is the one time where size really doesn't matter: we love them all, from tiny seedlings to big bushes. Just be prepared to part with whatever you bring and ready to adopt a new addition into your plant family.

    WHAT TO EXPECT / WHAT YOU GET

    The event cost is $35 and includes the following:

    GIVEAWAYS: At check-in each participant will receive a custom tote filled with garden-themed goodies like seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds, herbal soap from The Lucky Honeybee, accessories from The Moxie Fox, swag from Kanibal & Co. + more.

    PLANT EXCHANGE: Bring one plant, swap one plant. Bring three, swap three! Plants can be purchased, grown, inherited, etc. We'll walk you through how to plant swap like a pro.

    REFRESHMENTS: Complimentary custom-blended rose + hibiscus kombucha from Non-Nocere Botanicals and plant-based bites from Busy Bee Organics.

    INFO SESSION: Helena Gouros, Jersey City urban gardener + the founder of The Urban Garden Companion, will get down and dirty about plants. She'll discuss topics such as: indoor plant care, propagation, succulents (they're not as easy as they seem!), indoor composting, creative outdoor plant care (roofs and stoops and fire escapes, oh my!), as well as general environmental tips like natural alternatives to chemical fertilizers and permaculture + wildlife support. The session will finish with a Q&A segment and then a cultivation class. Yes, more plants! Each participant will sow two different seeds to grow at home.

    EXTRA DIRTY*

    Cash bar provided by Corgi Spirits (21+ / ID mandatory). Corgi Spirits will be serving their limited-edition summer spirit, Garden Party Gin! It's a wonderfully lively and refreshing gin, with wisps of cooling cucumber, bright citrus and fresh herbs.

    Empty pots at home? Bring them to our Dirt Bar hosted by 14th Street Garden Center. There will be à la carte plants for sale!

    *Note: EXTRA DIRTY is not included in the ticket price.

    PARKING / TRANSPORTATION / ETC

    The venue, Corgi Spirits, has plenty of parking and is just a stone's throw from the Liberty State Park and Garfield Avenue light rail station.

    The event is rain or shine and will be held indoors as well as outside, so please come prepared.

    Reiki + Herbal Healing Circle & Meditation--CSRA

    1. To provide assistance/healing for those who are in need of healing at the monthly healing circle and separate herbal classes free of charge. (donations are most welcomed.)

    2. Offer Reiki Classes to those who are interested to learn and practice this healing art.

    This method and art of healing is not taught and is not available in any universities in USA. Therefore, it is essential to find out the Master Teacher's background and the length of their education--Don't be shy to ask for their certificates and their lineage; that is your right to know who is your teacher ...... Another word of advice: Do not combine your classes--Reiki Initiation classes should not be treated as buying fast food! ON-LINE attunements are nothing but a marketing scheme.

    3. Provide Reiki Share for the practitioners and especially for my own students to advance their skills and hands on experience.

    4. Eventually establish the "Traditional Eastern Usui Reiki Ryoho and Jikiden" healing center for CSRA.

    5. This site is to offer growth opportunities, leadership, teaching and mentoring for anyone of my students who achieve Master and/or Master Teacher Levels.

    6. And promote information, classes, cooking classes for using herbs and advancing into understanding Ayurveda and food as medicine in the Herbal Healing gatherings.

    Information about: Reiki is not a religious group; it cuts across all faiths, creeds and beliefs. Reiki is simply a healing method of stress reduction which promotes health.

    Over 800 American hospitals offer Reiki as part of their hospital services.

    Reiki is effective for restoring balance, strengthening the functions and health of physical body; enhancing relaxation and self awareness of the emotional body; and calming and nourishing the spirit body.

    It promotes self-healing by treating from inside out, without changing medication(s) if under care of a medical provider.

    This Healing Circle is open to the public, and anyone who wish to advance their healing and promote a faster recovery. Individual results may vary based on regularity and number of treatments.

    All Reiki modalities are welcome to join and practice as long as they are open to some Q&A and willing to learn more. Love donations to keep these two groups growing and advancing are much welcomed.

    Blessings to all.

    Seedling Swap! Grow something new this year!

    Cultivate the City is hosting a seedling swap! Get the perfect start to this growing season and network with other urban gardeners right in your neighborhood. This is a face-to-face event and a great opportunity to not only score some rare seedlings to jumpstart your garden, but an excellent change to talk with other seasoned gardeners and learn about what can grow best in our unique microclimates. There is a limited enrollment of 50 participants and we expect to sell-out, so be sure to register early!

    Swap will start promptly at 12:30 so please arrive a little early, and have your seedlings properly labeled. Those who bring seedlings to share will have first dibs, but everyone will get a chance to select something. We will also have a few door prizes donated by partners which will be raffled off to attendees. We plan to wrap up by 1:30, so you'll have the rest of the day to get your seeds started and do some early spring work in the garden! In case you don't find what you are looking for, we will have several seedlings and full size plants that we've kept thriving all winter long, and we have a great new stock of container vegetable and unique hot pepper seeds available for purchase.

    This event is offered for free with the support of our generous sponsors and of course our amazing volunteers for helping coordinate! If you are able to, please consider volunteering to help us on the day of the event. Thank you!

    **Any remaining seedlings from the swap will be donated to local school gardens.
