presents a special, free screening ofImage result for king corn dvd imageKING CORN

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

An engrossing and eye-opening movie about the United States of America, the fast food nation. King Corn is a fun and crusading journey into the digestive tract of our nation. Fueled by curiosity and a dash of naiveté, college friends return to their ancestral home of green Iowa to find how the modest corn kernel conquered American.

With the help of real farmers, powerful fertilizer, government aid and genetically modified seeds, the friends manage to grow one acre of corn. Along the way they unlock the hidden truths about America’s modern food system.

“I Spy: Who’s Using My Pollinator Garden?”

with local pollinator specialist

Katy Pye

Thursday, April 5, 2018, 2-3 pm

 

Katy Pye is an award-winning, local author who retired from resource conservation work in 2000, and moved from the Sacramento Valley to South Caspar in 2005.

Her understanding of the relationships between plants and wildlife began in the ‘90s when she ran the Yolo County Resource Conservation District. It aimed to teach farmers and ranchers how to use wildlife habitat on their lands as a less expensive, more balanced way to control pests, weeds, and erosion, while increasing overall wildlife biodiversity.

Katy doesn’t call herself a gardener, rather says historically she has “gardened,” using the all-too-familiar, scatter-gun approach: “Oooo, that plant’s so pretty, where can I put it?”

However, her current book project based on how to track the pollinators using your garden, then adjusting your plantings to serve them, required her to get much closer and more personal with what she grows and why.

Katy’s presentation will share a small bit of her year-long process of discovery in and out of the garden.
