On November 26th, the Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council welcomes Plant Explorer, Chris Homanics, for our November 2019 Science Pub presentation entitled "Fruit and Nut Explorations in the Pacific Northwest.” This presentation will illustrate how the revival of diverse local agroforestry production can provide a resilient source of foods, medicines and materials and will contribute to restoring the planet while mitigating climate change. Chris is a founder of the Agrarian Sharing Network, board member of the Home Orchard Society, and runs an edible-focused nursery called Head, Hands, Heart.
The Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council (CFWWC) hosts a family-friendly monthly public meeting series called the Coast Fork Science Pub on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5-7pm at the Axe & Fiddle, 657 E. Main Street in Cottage Grove. The event begins with informal socializing, trivia, and updates about the watershed and watershed council during the first hour. The Science Pub presentation begins at 6pm. CFWWC receives 10% of all sales from the evening between 5-7:30pm. The event is free to the public, with a $5 donation suggested.
