Thursday, Sept 25: Community Potluck & Presentation - "Urbanism Matters"

Downtown%20Ojai%20High%20Traffic.jpg “Urbanism Matters - Why Healthy Urbanism is Essential for Healthy Communities”, presented by Nick Deitch of Main Street Architects, an award winning Ventura firm specializing in sustainable design.

Nick will let us know the newest concepts for urban planning intended to reverse the negative impacts communities have suffered since the arrival and domination of the automobile. He’ll focus on pedestrian friendly connections versus the promotion of urban sprawl, the separation of homes and services, and distancing that grew following the onset of the car. He will also share concepts for a healthy community taking into account our local Valley concerns and the rural / urban interface.

Thursday, September 25, 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. at the Chaparral Auditorium - 414 E. Ojai Ave.
This event begins with our popular community potluck. If joining us for the meal, please bring a vegetarian dish to share (local and organic ingredients encouraged) and your own table service.

There is a $5 suggested donation at the door and includes a drawing for a Nutiva gift pack.

Evening Program:
6:30-7:00 networking
7:00-7:30 dinner
7:30-8:30 presentation and Q&A
8:30 drawing (must be present to win)

Our Green Living Series is being made possible by the Nutiva Nourish Foundation.
Watch for further educational and skill-building events to come.
