MAY KIDS CARE
The 1:1 Movement is an organization dedicated to raising awareness about the various issues which influence sustainability. The organizationís goal is to demystify and simplify the concept of sustainability. In the most basic sense, to 1:1, sustainability refers to whether we can continue living the way we do or not. They aim to empower community members to recognize the environmental, economic, and health benefits of making sustainably minded decisions - to participate as part of the solution, rather than be categorized as a continuous part of a devastating problem. The 1:1 Movement feels the most effective way to bring about change is through a combination of people working towards their goals, and big businesses and government working down to meet us there- from the bottom up, to the top down. By focusing on the positive changes, we can all participate in making San Diego a cleaner, healthier, and safer city. For more information, visit 1to1movement.org

WHAT IS ORGANICALLY
GROWN FOOD? - Put simply, it is food grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. Organic farming encompasses a philosophy that nurtures- rather than depletes- the soil in which crops grow. This philosophy takes into account natural rhythms and cycles. Organic farmers use natureís own solutions to overcome problems. In doing so, they reduce chemical contamination of the environment and contribute to the health of the land now and for future generations. The food at Jimboís...Naturally! takes us back to a time when farmers were not dependent on chemicals. Yet, todayís organically grown food is even more than that. Itís food grown with an awareness that supports organic farming as beneficial to us and the environment.
