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.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe won a significant victory today in its fight to protect the Tribe’s drinking water and ancestral lands from the Dakota Access pipeline.
