10/7 - 10/8 Balancing the Biome Summit: Rights of Nature
Friday: Industry SLC, 650 S 500 W, Salt Lake City, UT 84101
Saturday: Great Salt Lake
10am-6pm both days
The Rights of Nature movement is quickly gaining momentum. How would such a legal system work, and could giving rights to nature create a paradigm shift in our fight against the climate crisis? Or in preventing ecosystem collapse at Great Salt Lake? These are the questions we’re asking at Balancing the Biome: Rights of Nature, an in-person event on October 7-8. Join us as we explore this movement with Great Salt Lake experts, artists and activists, and advocates working within the Rights of Nature movement.
The Mobile Moon Co-op's Founder, Rikki Longino, is speaking at the summit about the Co-op and Community Herbalism at 3pm on Friday.
10/16/22 Bread and Puppet
Jordan Park Pavillion
3pm - 4pm
Suggested donation: $10-$25 at the door
The circus is coming! We are hosting Bread & Puppet Theater as they make a rare cross-country tour! With performances coast to coast, the iconic political puppet theater company will perform with giant puppets, satire and celebration. The title of the show is Our Domestic Resurrection Circus: Apocalypse Defiance. The show is “in response to our totally unresurrected capitalist situation, not only the hundreds of thousands of unnecessarily sacrificed pandemic victims but our culture’s unwillingness to recognize Mother Earth’s revolt against our civilization. Since we earthlings do not live up to our earthling obligations, we need resurrection circuses to yell against our own stupidity.”
After the show Bread & Puppet will serve its famous sourdough rye bread with aioli, and Bread & Puppet’s “Cheap Art” – books, posters, postcards, pamphlets and banners from the Bread & Puppet Press – will be for sale. We are boundlessly excited to host the theater.
10/22 Alt Press Fest
Salt Lake City Public Library - Main Library
12pm - 5pm

10/26 Tracy Aviary Trunk or Treat
5:30 - 7:30pm
The Tracy Aviary and other community organizations will have decorated trunks and have spooky nature activities/facts and will pass out goodies.
A word on financial transparency:
Each quarter 30% of The Mobile Moon Co-op's proceeds go to a solidarity part. This is an expression of direct mutual aid to the grassroots. The remaining funds compensate for materials and the time and energy of our core members. We are devoted to making high-quality products and hosting meaningful community events. Navigating compensation for this work is a difficult and confusing task! Depending on the month we make anywhere from $8-20/hour. We ask for donations for many of our events so we can continue honoring our commitment to take care of ourselves and our community in the form of material and financial redistribution.
We hold values of anti-capitalism and community liberation from oppressive structures. We know that everybody has bills to pay and we don’t want finances to stop anybody participating in our workshops or events. We offer sliding scale, work trade, discounts for QTBIPOC (Queer and Trans Black and Indigenous People of Color) and are open to other ideas for improving inclusivity. Please don’t feel discouraged to join in on an event if you can’t afford the entry, but please write to us and let us know so we can help! Lack of money is not a barrier to entry into our space.
We encourage everyone to take a moment and reflect on your privilege and hold yourself accountable for what you can truly offer. We believe in solidarity over charity and acknowledge the cruel and extractive historical processes that have led to certain community members being positioned with greater access to resources than others. If you’d like to give more than the suggested donation and/or sponsor a moonbox or workshop registration for someone else, you are welcome to do so! Just reach out and let us know.
Thank you to everyone for all the ways you choose to engage with this project! We wouldn’t be here without the mycelial network of support and enthusiasm from you all.
