Tonelise Rugas, great lover of science fiction, is pleased to host the March 5th Book Club meeting at 7pm. Of her several book suggestions, I felt that in memory of the recent passing of the great Ursula K. LeGuin, we should be reading her book, The Dispossessed

FEBRUARY THOUGHT FOR FOOD: SUSTAINABILITY SOAPBOX

At the HDTK dinners, we set aside a little time each meeting to discuss specific plants that grow out here in the desert and how we’ve worked with them in our kitchens. Over the months, we’ve heard little snippets of interesting tangential projects you have going on at home, like permaculture systems and homesteading practices—but we never get to hear the full story. So is there something you’re doing that you want to share and teach our community? Maybe you’re building a rain-capturing system, or just installed solar energy. Or maybe you’re a skilled gardener and cultivate specific plants to attract pollinators. Maybe you’ve got a compost system, or composting toilets, and have found ways to deal with waste. Or maybe you’re thinking about some of these things, and have found a certain person or movement or book or TED talk inspiring to your ambitions. If so, we want to hear about it!

791 Author James Hagerty is looking forward to having us visit him on February 5th at 7pm at his house and studio in Morongo Valley. He was raised on a farm in Thermal, California in the 1950's and wrote his book, Nut Grass, about the dramatic travails of a rather dysfunctional migrant farm worker family who lived there for a while. Hard copies of this book have dried up recently, but it is available digitally on Amazon, and a few used copies are floating around on Alibris and Abe books. If you want a new paperback, contact me at kipfjeld@gmail.com. The author has kindly provided me with a limited supply which I can mail to you for $20, including postage, in the USA.

JANUARY THEME: STICKS AND STONES

This month we’re trying something different. January’s dinner is the first of two in which we’re not featuring an ingredient, but instead focusing on concepts. The winter is an ideal time to step back and evaluate our relationship to the plants we’ve been harvesting; have we been harvesting in a sustainable manner that doesn’t harm the plant? Are we overharvesting, or diminishing food supplies for wild animals? How can we be better stewards and nurture those plants that we visit for sustenance and culinary inspiration? So while the plant kingdom takes a nap, we’ll leave them alone and instead play with inorganic or non-living materials that create the backdrop for our resting greenery.
