At 6:30 pm, while you finish your food Dr. Mitchell Pavao-Zuckerman (of the University of Arizona's Biosphere 2) will talk about the soil food web, its importance for food production, plant growth, and soil water storage and how it can be enhanced in the arid urban environment.
Then at 7:15 pm Dr. Pavao-Zuckerman will lead hands-on activities and a question and answer session.
To celebrate the end of the busiest season for the Co-op there will be a free raffle.
