Drop by the SLO Grange Hall Saturday afternoon October 25th to check out some of the free events at the 2014 Central Coast Bioneers Conference. The Green Marketplace is open from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. in the open space behind the Grange and features a variety of exhibitors. Beginning at noon, Bloom & Sophia will perform in the Green Marketplace and also starting at noon is the seed exchange sponsored by the SLO Seed Exchange. Even if you have no seeds of your own, come by and pick up some heirloom seeds for your garden and hear the story of where they came from and who grew them. For you drummers or drummer wannabes out there, world-class percussionists Afia Walking Tree and Michaelle Goerlitz will give a free drumming lesson from 12:30 to 1:30. If you have no equipment, no worries. Afia is bringing 20 percussion instruments for you to learn on. Inside the Grange lobby, Volumes of Pleasure will have a conference bookstore, featuring books written by Bioneers keynote speakers and other books of interest. We will also have a community art event at the Grange entrance – create a leaf to hang on our tree of hope containing your wish for the world.
