As I fumble with a first draft of Ahimsa's governing documents (Articles of Incorporation, Bylaws, Policies) I cannot help but ponder, "what are our values?"  I need raw, loose words to play and craft with.  I can volunteer some of my personal favorite:

organic
sustainable
affordable
fair trade
freely traded
GM free hormone free pesticide free poison free
environmentally friendly
healthy
local
natural
diverse, varied
seasonal
fresh
bioavailable
clean, pure
renewable, circular, cyclical
democratic and transparent governance
social responsibility
just say no to tyranny
adaptogenic and immune-enhancing
preventative care
usury-free currency
anti-eugenics

Does anyone else have any value-words to share?  Don't be afraid to misfire your intellectual shotgun; I never am . . .

respect
honor
in cooperation with all nations (human, animal, insect, plant, mineral, etc.)
community
alliance
aligned in right mind & heart
do no harm
nurture
walk gently, listen
celebrate/revel in the differences/uniqueness (anti anything is antithetical to what we're trying to accomplish)
