Open Silo Happy Hour with Earth Steward Ecology - Long Beach Beer Lab - Long Beach

Open Silo is hosting our next Happy Hour with Earth Steward Ecology at Long Beach Beer Lab on Wednesday, March 25th! We'll be joined by Ryan from Earth Steward Ecology to learn more about his work as reiterative landscape designer, specializing in California natives, edible gardens, greywater installation, and more.We've thought hard about whether or not to keep our happy hour date. Yes, this is a public place and a modest gathering of humans, so please exercise caution. If you think you are sick with, exposed to, or are particularly vulnerable to the coronovirus, please stay home. We will livestream Ryan's talk on Instagram, and we'll be encouraging people to wash hands and do the classic elbow bump.But we also think it's really important to "keep up the good work," as Jes likes to say, within the appropriate bounds of caution. Community, the relationships that humans have with other humans, is one of our greatest advantages we have against existential threats. When we work together, we can solve otherwise impossible problems. That is the true reason that Open Silo exists, and so we are continuing that work.Our co-host Ryan is on the same wavelength. In light of our current times, he will be discussing the underlying resilience efforts that Earth Steward Ecology was founded to address. With a worldview of abundance and unrestrained consumption, few people are concerned about creating a physical urban ecology in our living or working spaces that can withstand a rapid decrease of resources. "What we are ready to do now is design and build real abundant food, water, and even toilet paper resilience in the city to such an extent that every person living here would never be motivated to make a run on the grocery store." No matter what your field of work, study, or interest, we want to meet you! All who are passionate about urban agriculture or food issues are welcome. Bring a friend or colleague along. Long Beach Beer Lab has a delicious food menu, and fresh baked bread!. Dress is casual. You can RSVP on Facebook, or just show up anytime between 6-9 pm!Open Silo Happy Hour with Earth Steward EcologyLong Beach Beer Lab518 W. Willow Street Long Beach, CAWed, Mar 25 | 6 - 9 pm
