Salon Series Begins Again in February

“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.”

Our final 2015 Salon was about "Dirt" at the Ojai Valley Green Coalition Resource Center – 206 N. Signal St., Suite S, in downtown Ojai.
Salon Series Sponsored by Nutiva Foundation

Dirt%20image.png Dirt, the Skin of the Earth.
In our final Salon of the year, we ask the question: What is dirt and what is our relationship with it? We walk on it, wash it off, rely on it for our food, fear it when it slides, use it in make-up, build homes with it, and as an insult to others.
We abuse it, poison it, disregard it, plow it, and let it blow away. In the end, we all return to it. How often do we stop and consider this, the skin of the earth and our most humble of resources?
In this Salon, we’ll discuss the role, seen or unseen, that dirt plays in our lives. So come and share with us – what’s the dirt on Dirt in your life?
