Akron, OH, July 05, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Biodynamics Foundation, an Akron-based not-for-profit institution focused on locally grown fresh food and job creation globally, will host a "Jamaican Night Out" Benefit Concert and Silent Auction Fundraiser on Saturday, July 20, 2013, from 7-11 p.m. at Todaro’s Party Center, 1820 Akron Peninsula Rd., Akron, Ohio.
The Biodynamics Foundation "Jamaican Night Out" is sponsored by Red Stripe, an authentic imported pale lager brewed by Desnoes & Geddes in Jamaica. The event is being held to raise $5,000 to help the Biodynamics Foundation to build two 15-x-30-ft. Biodynamics hydroponic greenhouses – powered by Hydrogen Energy Systems (HES) Akron, Ohio, generators – at the Jamaica Deaf Village, a 100-acre community for the deaf located in Kingston, Jamaica. An Akron Biodynamics greenhouse will also be constructed this summer by Carmen Construction Inc. Tallmadge Ohio, at the Family Promise of Akron family intake center to demonstrate the versatility and potential worldwide impact of Biodynamics Controlled Environment Agriculture technology.
Headlining the concert and our very special guest is Akron's own Umojah Nation, Northeast Ohio's most inspired reggae band. Umojah Nation, led by the husband and wife team of Tracey and Stefano Nguma, has opened for Carlos Jones at the House of Blues. The band – seeded in Jamaican roots and dancehall music and featuring three female vocalists fronting a solid lineup of professional musicians – adopts its moniker from the Swahili word for "unity."
The "Jamaican Night Out" festivities at Todaro’s will include “All You Can Eat” all-natural, authentic Jamaican food, an open bar serving Red Stripe and White Rum, dancing, silent auction, and guest prizes. Price: $30 per person, or two (2) guests for $50. Sponsored tables of 10 persons with VIP seating are available (in limited supply) for $200.
“Your support helps provide affordable access to fresh, safe, nutritious produce while creating awareness about building local food security infrastructure and developing entrepreneurship to combat poverty worldwide,” said Timothy Madden, president of the Biodynamics Foundation and COO of CEA Capital Holdings of Akron Ohio. “We are building very low-cost and effective greenhouses in Jamaica and Akron this summer with materials available in any developing country at local home improvement store’s to demonstrate that our small family hydroponic greenhouses can be constructed anywhere with minimal investment in materials, time and labor, and can profitably grow more than $30,000 worth of fresh produce annually in most areas, having an immediate and significant impact on the overall quality of life and future success of families in need world wide.”
The greenhouses will incorporate commonly available materials combined with low-cost wireless hydroponic sensor technology developed and patented by Dr. Ajay Mahajan, associate dean for research at the University of Akron’s College of Engineering, and commercialized by the University of Akron Research Foundation (UARF), headed by project executive Wil Hemker.
