Salon IX: 2016 Begins February 4

“A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.”
AT THE OVGC, WE ALSO MEET TO INSPIRE AND BE ENRICHED BY THE STORIES AND INSIGHTS WE SHARE.

2016 we meet the 1st Thursday of every other month starting February 4 at the Ojai Valley Green Coalition Resource Center – 206 N. Signal St., Suite S, in downtown Ojai.

Animal Wisdom
1-170x170.jpg In our first Salon of the year, we consider the animal kingdom. Animals are part of nature and thus every ecosystem - wild and domestic. Do you have an animal totem, a special story or have thoughts on how we are connected with animals? Come share with song, art, story, the written word - however you are moved.

Sign-on to SOAR

Keeping Our Open Spaces and Agricultural Land

Save Open Space and Agricultural Resources (SOAR) is a series of voter initiatives that require a vote of the people before agricultural land or open space areas can be rezoned for development. Most of the Ventura County SOAR initiatives expire in 2020.

The best window for renewing the SOAR initiatives is the November 2016 election to continue the SOAR protections for agriculture and open space thru to the year 2050.

Help Stop Shot Hole Borer Beetle

Folks, we have a new tree pest in town. I sat in on a community meeting of state, county and local stakeholders to get the “scoop”. Everyone needs to care, be aware, and take action on your property as this pest is easily carried via compost, firewood, and mulch. Please help spread the word to neighbors, friends, family and your networks, like civic groups, church, etc. Below are pertinent information and links.
Thank you,
Deborah - Program Director

Please post and pass on this important notice about the Beetle

Spread the Word (Not Your Wood)
