Event Description

Each fall, the Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center joyfully brings the community together to enjoy local, seasonal foods, and an inspirational speaker. This year, we are collaborating with local chef Cyndi Colvin, formerly of Avalon Catering, who has been creating delicious meals of all types in our area for over 30 years!

Mezzos (appetizers) served before the meal are:

Rosemary Marcona Almonds
Mediterranean Olive Platter
Smen Za'Atar Flatbread
White Bean & Garbanzo Hummus

The main entree, served buffet style, will include fall vegetables with legumes, plus Jeweled Rice with Pomegranate, Cherry and Pistachio.

Also, for a meat option, the dinner will feature Roasted Chicken Baharat accompanied by the Moroccan spice Ras El Hanout. We'll be serving wine, tea and water, with additional drink tickets available for purchase.

For FUNdraising, there will be a dessert auction after the meal. Do you have a special pumpkin-cheesecake recipe, gluten-free snickerdoodles, or famous lemon bars? Bring them in to help us raise funds for ongoing programs! To help with our planning, please email us at [email protected] to let us know about your dessert offering.

The dinner's highlight for sure will be our keynote speaker Stephen Brooks, founder and, since 1995, primary Director of the Punta Mona Center for Sustainable Living and Education in Costa Rica, where he also helped to create La Ecovilla permaculture community.

Stephen observed the problems facing small farmers and communities in Central America and Costa Rica due to mega-monoculture agricultural practices and loss of dynamic community. He strives to provide students, landowners, businesses, and neighbors regenerative solutions and strategies to increase quality of life.

He is an avid and passionate ethnobotanist, plant collector, permaculture designer and educator, operator of education environmental and botanical tours, implements permaculture gardens and food forests on home and hundred acre scales, and community developer. He is the co-founder of both Medicines from the Edge: a Tropical Herbal Convergence and the Envision Festival.

Evidence | Facts – Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet | NASA

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

Father-Son Duo Helped Create 51,000 New Beehive Colonies Across The Globe| Intelligent Living

The bee population is shrinking. But this duo is saving them. Stuart and Cedar Anderson spent a whole ten years trying to figure out how to harvest honey without disturbing bees. Their solution was an Indiegogo-funded invention called Flow Hive that replicates a real beehive without putting the bees at risk when you harvest honey. The Flow Hive allows the honey to flow out of the hive straight into a jar without crushing or disrupting the bees inside. What a brilliant design!
