Make a Choice to Eat Locally Grown Organic Food

All At Once is Jack Johnson’s social action network, where you can make a positive change in your
local and world community through your actions, your voice, and your choice. This year’s All At
Once campaign focuses on supporting plastic free initiatives, as well as sustainable local food
systems.

From field to fork, an average dinner travels 1,500 miles. But your food doesn’t have to travel
halfway around the planet, burning up fossil fuels along the way. It doesn’t need to be grown with
pesticides either. You can make a choice to eat locally grown organic food. When you buy from local
farmers, your dollars stay within your community and support local farms. When you choose
organic, you are investing in healthy food and a clean environment.

Jack Johnson and All At Once have teamed up with the Eat Well Guide to encourage fans to take
action by eating at restaurants that serve local organic produce. Check out this customized Guide to
Good Food for a list of locally grown and sustainably produced food from family farms, restaurants,
farmers' markets, grocery stores, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs, U-pick
orchards and more.

Urban Acres is Your Farm Store in the City - a co-op and farm store providing you with the very best
local and organic foods! We currently have several locations in the Dallas area: White Rock,
Addison, Park Cities, and Oak Cliff.


WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
What makes Urban Acres different from other local health food stores? We operate like a co-op -
you pay a yearly membership fee for access to all of the items at your local Urban Acres store
location. This includes farm-fresh local meats, dairy, produce, local raw honey, raw chocolate and
other snacks, wild-caught fish from Alaska, and so much more.


Most of the products we carry cannot be found at other local health food stores, because we work
directly with local Texas farmers who farm 100% organically. Our goal is to provide you with the
best quality farm-fresh food while supporting sustainable agriculture in Texas.


You also play an integral role in what products we decide to carry, and we rely on the volunteer help

The second community garden in the Lake Highlands neighborhood of Dallas, the Highlands
Christian Church Community Garden has thirty plots open to members of the community.

Lake Highlands Community Garden
7901 Goforth Road, Dallas, TX 75238 http://www.lhgarden.org/email-us.html
http://www.lhgarden.org

The Lake Highlands Community Garden is a first of its kind partnership between the City of Dallas
and local residents to find a productive and beneficial use for unused property owned by the city.
With the help of a very generous grant provide by the Organic Division of Scott's Miracle-Gro, in a
few short months, the community garden has converted a long forgotten field transforming it into a
productive organic garden supplying gardeners, family and friends with nutritious, tasty produce.
Locally grown produces reduces the total carbon foot-print for food products. In addition, the
produce can improve food security because the gardeners know where the food is grown.

The community garden serves as a learning center demonstrating the proper use of organic
products, utilizing “water-wise” methods for irrigating the crops and planting the right plant in the
right space at the right time for maximum productivity. Being an organic garden, we do not use
pesticides, herbicides or commercial fertilizers which harm our environment.Our Garden Now

We recently received approval to expand our gardens and during our 1st anniversary, we celebrated
the ground breaking of 54 additional individual plots, a donation garden to produce food to go
directly to organizations in need, and bee hives and bee garden to keep our plants producing.

Our garden is building the Lake Highlands community by bringing together people with diverse
backgrounds to a central site to share in the joys and agonies of gardening in the Texas heat. Our
gardeners are sharing with their children and grand children. We are also educating the next
generation of gardeners and sharing with them our appreciation of the true taste of home grown
vegetables.

Search no longer- if you're a discriminating beef enthusiast seeking a sinfully delicious yet
wholesome and healthy eating experience, Nitschke Natural is premium quality beef raised 100% on
pasture and dry-aged to tender perfection. Because of the unique health benefits of pasture-finished
beef, you don't have to sacrifice the pleasure of what you love to eat for your own good health. You
really can have both!


You are what your meat eats. Our calves are born and raised on the Circle N Ranch from our
Angus-based herd so we're involved with their health and nutrition even before they're born. They're
raised and finished completely on pasture to produce a well-marbled and tender eating experience
with a rich beefy taste. Our cattle -unlike those raised on factory farms and finished in crowded
feedlots- are free to roam acres of pastures and choose their own diet from the Circle N's diverse
forages. This completely pasture-based diet results in beef with complex flavoring and, studies
show, is rich in essential nutrients like CLAs and Omega 3s. NNB calves are grass-fed and
grass-finished according to USDA and American Grassfed Association (AGA) standards. No growth
hormones or antibiotics are ever used.


If you're a cow, this is the place to be. Cattle thrive under low stress conditions, and we strive to
make life at the Circle N as stress free as possible for our cows and calves. We time our calving
season to coincide with ample forage supply for lactating cows and the nutritional needs of growing
calves. We plan forage development years in advance and make it our goal to under-stock rather
than overstock our pastures to prevent nutritional stress. Since our calves are born and raised on
the ranch they are spared the stresses associated with excessive handling, transportation and
co-mingling with non-herd members. Instead, our cattle coexist naturally with their own herd-mates
and the Circle N's abundant wildlife. They're never confined to a feedlot, given growth hormones or
antibiotics and are handled humanely in a quiet and gentle manner.




                                                                                                Page 12

Urban Acres is Your Farm Store in the City - a co-op and farm store providing you with the very best
local and organic foods! We currently have several locations in the Dallas area: White Rock,
Addison, Park Cities, and Oak Cliff.


WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
What makes Urban Acres different from other local health food stores? We operate like a co-op -
you pay a yearly membership fee for access to all of the items at your local Urban Acres store
location. This includes farm-fresh local meats, dairy, produce, local raw honey, raw chocolate and
other snacks, wild-caught fish from Alaska, and so much more.


Most of the products we carry cannot be found at other local health food stores, because we work
directly with local Texas farmers who farm 100% organically. Our goal is to provide you with the
best quality farm-fresh food while supporting sustainable agriculture in Texas.

ABOUT JACK JOHNSON’S GREEN ACTIVISM
Jack Johnson, and his wife Kim, have spent the last seven years effecting change in their home state of
Hawaii and worldwide through involvement in many social and environmental issues. Their Kokua Hawaii
Foundation and Kokua Festival support environmental education in Hawaii’s schools and communities.
Jack Johnson’s 2008 tour and CD, Sleep Through the Static, set a new precedent in the music industry by
taking an eco-friendly approach to all aspects of production. In conjunction with his 2008 world tour, Johnson
launched the AllAtOnce.org campaign and gave 100% of his tour profits to local non-profit partners through
his newly established Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation.

In 2010, Jack Johnson released his newest album, To The Sea, on his own label Brushfire Records and
embarked on another world tour. To The Sea was recorded at his solar-powered studio and will be released
in eco-friendly packaging. His world tour will continue to lead the way in sustainable touring efforts to reduce
its environmental impact in significant ways. This year’s All At Once campaign will focus on supporting non-
profit groups and engaging fans in the realms of plastic waste reduction and sustainable local food systems.
As in 2008, Jack Johnson will once again donate 100% of his tour profits to charity.

Here is a brief snapshot of Jack Johnson’s activism:

KOKUA HAWAII FOUNDATION
In 2003 the Johnsons founded the Kokua Hawaii Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that supports
environmental education in the schools and communities of Johnson’s native home state of Hawaii. The
Foundation’s mission is to provide students with exciting and interactive encounters that will enhance their
appreciation for, and understanding of, their environment so they will be lifelong stewards of the earth. In
addition to several school programs, the Foundation’s work has expanded with local community events and
environmental action campaigns. Visit kokuahawaiifoundation.org for more information.

KOKUA FESTIVAL
The Johnsons created and produce the Kokua Festival, which is now heading into its sixth year.
The Festival raises funds for the Kokua Hawaii Foundation programs and also serves as an international
environmental education event that models green practices. All parties involved in producing the Festival
are committed to environmental sustainability– striving for a zero-waste and carbon-neutral event. Kokua
greening actions include the Earth Day Resolution campaign, zero-waste stations, water refill stations,
eco-friendly concert merchandise featuring US-made organic cotton and 100% post-consumer waste
recycled paper, use of local and sustainable biodiesel in production vehicles and generators, a Kokua
Village showcasing green companies and environmental non-profits, locally-grown organic concessions and
catering, bike valet and electric concert shuttles, and offsetting all festival CO2 emissions through renewable
energy programs in Hawaii. Visit kokuafestival.com for more information.

JOHNSON OHANA CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
100% of Jack Johnson’s 2008 tour profits were used to establish the Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation,
an endowment founded by Jack and his wife Kim to support environmental, art and music education now
and into the future. The Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation has made over $750,000 in donations to
date and as part of the 2010 world tour, will offer direct and matching donations to All At Once partner non-
profits.




                                                                                                          Page 27
1% FOR THE PLANET
In 2004, Jack Johnson became the 50th member of 1% For The Planet.
Johnson’s 2005 release of In Between Dreams became the first album to
carry the 1% label and his 2005 world tour promoted the 1% For The Planet
mission and brand and helped to launch the organization. Today 1% For
The Planet is a growing global movement of more than 700 companies that
donate 1% of their sales to a network of more than 1,500 environmental
organizations worldwide. In the process, these companies pave the
way for more corporate responsibility in the business community. Visit
onepercentfortheplanet.org for more information.

GREEN TOURING
Jack Johnson’s tour production team is at the forefront of the green touring movement, effecting change
at many levels in the industry. In 2005, Jack Johnson, along with his crew, MusicMatters and leading
environmental scientists developed the EnviroRider, an environmental handbook presenting eco-friendly
options and actions for the various components of tour production. For Johnson’s 2008 tour, the EnviroRider
was updated to reflect new technologies and practices, and to include more stringent policies for venue
participation, requiring compliance with waste reduction, recycling, and CO2 offsetting guidelines. In 2008,
Johnson enlisted the help of environmental non-profit Reverb to execute all onsite tour greening efforts and
fan outreach. With the help of MusicMatters, Reverb and the cooperation of fans and venues around the
world, Johnson was successful in not only implementing changes for his tour dates but also in engaging fans
and encouraging venues to adopt lasting sustainable practices.

For Johnson’s 2010 world tour, his production team, with the support of Reverb, will continue to pave the
way in green touring practices. Tour trucks and coaches will use sustainable biodiesel where possible
to reduce CO2 emissions. Fans will be incentivized to use mass transportation and the All At Once ride
share program. All tour merchandise will be made from sustainable materials with a focus on reusables
and renewables. The tour will collaborate with local food producers in each community to promote and
provide locally grown and organic foods. Waste reduction measures will be expanded with on-site water refill
stations along with bio-ware, composting and recycling. After all energy conservation measures have been
taken, remaining CO2 emissions will be offset through support of a variety of carbon management projects.
Visit jackjohnsonmusic.com/greening for tour details.

ALL AT ONCE – FAN ENGAGEMENT AND ACTIVATION
In 2008, Jack Johnson and crew launched All At Once, a social action network and global community
based on the belief that an individual action, multiplied by millions, creates global change. All At Once
provides information, tools, and motivation to empower individuals to become active in their local and world
community. At the close of the 2008 world tour, All At Once raised over $900,000 for local non-profits and
generated over 250,000 individual actions. Visit AllAtOnce.org for more information.

The Village Green is where All At Once comes to life at Johnson’s concerts – fans connect with non-profit
partners, learn about environmental actions, capture environmental commitment photos, reduce plastic

NON-PROFIT SUPPORT AND COLLABORATION
Johnson’s 2010 tour is collaborating with over 150 hand-chosen community groups working in the realms of
plastic waste reduction, sustainable agriculture, community & school gardens, climate change, water quality,
and environmental education. Partnering non-profits are hosting volunteer events leading up to the shows
and using donated concert tickets to leverage new members or raise funds for their projects. Participating
non-profits interact with fans at the concerts in the “Village Green,” with the goal of raising awareness about
local issues and engaging community action. The Johnson Ohana Charitable Foundation offers direct and
matching donations to all non-profit tour partners in addition to the expanded support and promotion they
receive from the All At Once online community.

2010 ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT GOALS
Impacts will be tracked throughout Johnson’s 2010 world tour to demonstrate how collective action
can result in significant change. An end-of-tour report will be available at www.AllAtOnce.org and
jackjohnsonmusic.com. Measurable actions include:
     • Number of All At Once pledges on site and online
     • Number of participants in local environmental events & projects leading up to the concert
     • Dollars raised for local All At Once non-profit partners
     • Tons of CO2 reduced from All At Once & tour efforts (ride sharing, carbon offsets, biodiesel)
     • Number of plastic bags and water bottles replaced by reusables
     • Pounds of waste recycled/composted at the venues

BRUSHFIRE RECORDS LABEL GREENING
Jack Johnson’s record label, Brushfire Records, is blazing a trail in environmental responsibility among
record labels. Brushfire is headquartered in a newly-renovated green building, leveraging a number of
innovative features to keep their environmental impact low.

These features include: solar panels that provide all power for offices and studio, interior/exterior wall
insulation made from 100% post consumer waste (cotton from blue jean scraps), a Duro-Last green roof
and recycled shingles, refinished hardwood, cork and marmoleum flooring, and low VOC paints and
primers. In addition, the record label pays close attention to its internal operations, monitoring energy use
and increasing efficiency through lighting and fixtures, reducing office waste and ensuring company-wide
recycling, composting, sourcing sustainable goods for office supplies and other operational needs, and
offsetting all company CO2 emissions.

Brushfire has also worked to get its clients and colleagues on board. The label is a member of 1% for
the Planet and encourages its artists to do the same. In addition, Brushfire convinced Universal (their
manufacturer/distributor) to use FSC-certified recycled paper for all their Brushfire music and film releases,
developed the first 100% recycled plastic tray, and piloted a new form of environmental packaging called
Eco-Pac.

Brushfire Records is also a founding member of the recently launched Green Music Group. Brushfire will
be working with other Green Music Group members to develop industry greening standards that will assist
other labels, artists, venues, and music industry professionals in implementing sustainable practices. Visit
