    Reconstruction and Recovery:  The Post-Civil War South (8 week class)
    Old Dixie was shocked and humiliated by her unexpected defeat at the hands of the detested Yankees.  Incredibly, "The Chivalry" had been beaten by soulless, materialistic Northerners.  How would the loyal sons and daughters of the Confederacy react to the Unthinkable?  Carry on the struggle, or join the modern world and create a commercial, urban culture where cotton and sugar cane once grew?  This class will trace the moral and political struggle post-war Southerners faced in the wake of utter ruin.

    Evolution of Organic brings us the story of organic agriculture, told by those who built the movement. A motley crew of back-to-the-landers, spiritual seekers and farmers’ sons and daughters reject chemical farming and set out to explore organic alternatives. It’s a heartfelt journey of change from a small band of rebels to a cultural transformation in the way we grow and eat food. By now organic has gone mainstream – split into an industry oriented toward bringing organic to all people, and a movement that has realized a vision of sustainable agriculture.

    This film is writen, directed and produced by Mark Kitchell. Narrator is Frances McDormand. This event is made possible by the following supporters:  Table Top Farm, The Living Seed Company, Point Reyes Flowers, Devil's Gulch Ranch, Marin Community Farm Stands, Marin Roots Farm, Tomales Farmstead Creamery. 

    Fundraiser for the Dance Palace.  Tickets to film screening and panel discussion $10.

    FIRE SYMPOSIUM FOR WEST MARIN

    BEGINNING AT 1 PM SUNDAY MARCH 11TH AT THE DANCE PALACE

    NOTE:  THIS IS THE DAY THE CLOCKS CHANGE!!!  WATCH THE TIME

     

    The Inverness Foundation is coordinating a Fire Symposium designed specifically for West Marin which will begin at 1 pm on Sunday March 11th.   There will be presentations and Q&A with fire experts from UC Berkeley School of Forestry, local Fire Departments, State and Federal agencies. Dick Spotswood, former elected official and Marin IJ contributor will facilitate public participation and keep the afternoon program moving smoothly

     

    There will be opportunities to pick up literature and sign up with your own neighborhood disaster coordinator. As we are learning in the aftermath of the 2017 fires, it is the neighborhood groups which will keep track of persons who could need assistance in evacuation or even help in hearing the alerts to evacuate.  All residents are strongly encouraged to become familiar with their local groups and to sign up for the area wide notification systems that will be shared at that meeting and at FireSafeMarin*

     

    Community participants involved in the planning include Supervisor Dennis Rodoni, the Marin County Fire Department, the Inverness Fire Department, the Tomales Bay Watershed Council Foundation, UC Berkeley College of Natural Resources, The Pt Reyes Station Village Association and our Disaster Council Coordinators.  We expect to have representatives come on board from both State and National Parks. 

     

    Topics will include forest management practices in place now or planned to mitigate risk, evacuation route planning and maintenance, notification practices that we will see in a future emergencies, options when facing the cancellation of fire insurance, and of course, what defensible space means for us.  We will review factors that led to the firestorms of 2017.

     

     

     

    For more information or to participate, contact  

    Kathy Hartzell, President

    The Inverness Association & Foundation

    VIsit www.FireSafeMarin.org      You will find valuable resources on this website including illustrations of Defensible Space and lists of dangerous vs safe plants and information on how to get your phone numbers and important locations into the notification data bases.

    The Stuart Dynasty: A 17th Century Soap Opera
    Following their Tudor cousins, the Stuarts reigned for four generations over the 1600s, the most turbulent century in English history: civil war, a time without a king, plague pandemics, and witch hunts ran alongside the Scientific Revolution. England was transforming from a medieval monarchy into a modern state. Living soap opera lives, the Stuart kings and queens, colorful, dramatic, and controversial, gave us riveting stories as they rode the roller coaster of the 17th century.
     
     
    Charlene O’Rourke, MA completed a Master’s in English and, to be practical, chose a career programming mainframe computers for the finance industry. In retirement, she was finally able to return to her first love, 17th century poetry. This led to a dedicated delving into the history of the period and a fascination with the stories of the extraordinary people who invented our modern world. She has taught popular courses on Early Modern England for four years to the students of Sonoma State University’s OLLI program.

    The Stuart Dynasty: A 17th Century Soap Opera
    Following their Tudor cousins, the Stuarts reigned for four generations over the 1600s, the most turbulent century in English history: civil war, a time without a king, plague pandemics, and witch hunts ran alongside the Scientific Revolution. England was transforming from a medieval monarchy into a modern state. Living soap opera lives, the Stuart kings and queens, colorful, dramatic, and controversial, gave us riveting stories as they rode the roller coaster of the 17th century.
     
     
    Charlene O’Rourke, MA completed a Master’s in English and, to be practical, chose a career programming mainframe computers for the finance industry. In retirement, she was finally able to return to her first love, 17th century poetry. This led to a dedicated delving into the history of the period and a fascination with the stories of the extraordinary people who invented our modern world. She has taught popular courses on Early Modern England for four years to the students of Sonoma State University’s OLLI program.
