Science Pub – The Mystery and Science Behind Biodynamics
August 28 • 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm• Free
On August 28th, the Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council welcomes local biodynamic farmer and gardener, Marjory House, for a presentation entitled The Mystery and Science Behind Biodynamics. Ms. House will discuss the importance of healthy soil and how it relates to the health of humans and animals as well as the history of organic agriculture in America and how biodynamics fits into it. From carbon sequestering to water retention, resistance to pests and disease and high Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) levels, science is starting to pay attention to these outcomes. This talk will demystify biodynamic agriculture by looking at the ways in which science is catching up.
The 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.
