Seed Sovereignty, Food Security and Climate Resilience: Women in the Vanguard​

with Dr. Vandana Shiva, Wednesday, October 14th, 7pm, SOU Music Recital Hall.

Scientist, philosopher, activist, feminist, environmentalist, Dr. Vandana Shiva is a one-woman movement for peace, social justice. and sustainability. Alarmed by the threat that biotechnology has imposed on biodiversity, Dr. Shiva founded Navdanya, a movement to protect the diversity of living resources, most notably native seeds. She is a vocal opponent to the current patent system that allows living organisms to be labeled as intellectual property.

Her talk will focus on the need for a paradigm shift away from the dominant view of industrial agriculture  with its origins in war, greed, and power, to a nature focused, women-centric view based on non-violence, the recognition of the intelligence in all life and all people, and the co-creation of partnerships for the well being of all.

With scientific evidence and 30 years of experience in evolving Navdanya, Dr Shiva will show how an agriculture that respects both the earth and women,  produces more food and nutrition, more health and well being, more health and higher income for women and small farmers. She believes that solutions to hunger and climate change are the same - intensification of biodiversity and ecological processes, instead of intensification of fossil fuels and toxic chemicals through GMOs.

Please join us for this amazing evening with Dr. Vandana Shiva.

With all the abundance the Rogue Valley has to offer, it's easy to support and love all things local. We’ve got local fruits, veggies, meat, beer, wine, and vitamins! “Loving local” is a healthy addiction, at least we think so, and one that we want to get all our friends hooked on.

Football season is here and I must admit, I’m not a huge football fan. I don’t have a favorite team. I don’t bleed green and yellow. I don’t really care who wins.

No doubt the watermelon has been dominating every backyard BBQ you’ve attended lately. From salad, cocktails, to dessert, I’ve tried watermelon every which way and then some. They are in their sweet, juicy prime and the possibilities are endless. But what about those other melons?

There is a hint of fall in the air, and that makes me giddy!

When I think about the flavors of summer I am immediately transported back to a house party a few years ago, where a friend served crackers, goat cheese, basil and tomatoes. This snack is a great example of how simple dishes and seasonal produce can win over your taste buds! Tomatoes are at the peak of their season. Their compadre basil is also busting a move.

Do you ever find yourself staring, well let’s be honest drooling, at an array of fresh, golden peaches? Only to get home and find the four you bought are too soft or juiceless or just plain not as good as they look on the outside? It’s a common grocery store conundrum.

Tis’ the season of zucchini! The summer squash, if not already, will soon be filling up your garden. It’s time to pull out your recipes for zucchini bread, zucchini brownies, or zucchini fritters and get cooking!

If you’ve been in the store this last month you’ve seen the stacks of luscious stone fruit slowly taking over our produce aisles. We’ve had peaches from Washington, as well as Ashland’s Valley View Orchards, and any day now we’ll have local Rolling Hills peaches.

Let’s get fresh! Liven up your grilling and summer dishes with homemade salsa. Adding fruit and fresh peppers into a salsa recipe is a great way to infuse the flavors of summer in every dish. Grilling your fruit, peppers or onion deepens their flavors, so throw some on next time you light up the grill.

Holy heat wave, did we all survive? How about your gardens? While weather is still expected to be around 100 degrees this week, it’s a relief to drop below 107. Last week I harvested my first zucchini! It was tender and a beautiful golden yellow color.
