This talk will present practical approaches to transitioning from traditional resource-intensive yards to more natural, interesting and fun gardens featuring low water-use native plants. Barbara will present information from her new book, Wild Suburbia – Learning to Garden with Native Plants. Ample time will be left for discussion and book signing.

Sunday – Noon Designing a Native Garden in a Limited Space Steve Gerischer Garden design, particularly for a small space can be challenging. Some of the best strategies are counter-intuitive.

From emergency communication services during natural disasters to communicating with the International Space Station and student satellites in space, HAM radio bridges huge distances in science and between people.

Lynn O’Connell and Jennifer Oliver O’Connell will cover basic amateur radio theory and requirements to get you going on your way to enjoying this hobby.  

We’ll also have radios on display and knowledgeable individuals that will be happy to answer any question you may have about HAM.

If you are interested in helping us establish a permanent location in the San Fernando Valley you need to be here to help us plan this and make it happen. 
We’ll still be holding classes/workshops of various interests once a month.  I will be posting the schedule later in the week and will be announced in separate meetup for each of the workshops.

Event: A Bintel Brief – A New Musical by Ken LaZebnik and Leslie Steinweiss – Sunday, July 10, 2016 @ 3 pm

Event: A Bintel Brief - A New Musical by Ken LaZebnik

Continuing his post-high school theater work, our son, Joseph Welch, will be appearing in this staged reading of our friend’s latest play, The Bintel Brief.

“100 years ago, Jewish immigrants to America sent letters to The Daily Forward’s column “A Bintel Brief)” (a bundle of letters), seeking advice about everything from labor disputes to romantic troubles. The editor, Abraham Cahan, responded as a kind of a Yiddish Dear Abby, offering advice and reassurance. The letters in “A Bintel Brief” remain a vivid and moving document of what it means to be newly arrived in America.

The new musical A Bintel Brief dramatizes those letters and the immigrant experience, which is universal and unchanging. Our cast represents the diversity of the immigrant experience: the letters may have been written in Yiddish, but the joys and sorrows are the same in any language.”
