Farmers Market on Campus
Throughout the summer, the Adobe Lodge will host a weekly farmers market, featuring organic produce. Marsha Habib, farmer and Americorps volunteer with Bronco Urban Gardens brings seasonal produce from the BUG Farm and nearby farms in Hollister. Last week's market showcased summer squash, kale, cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, and beautifully sweet strawberries.
The Adobe Lodge often uses produce from the BUG farm, especially during the table service program on Wednesdays. Also, most strawberries served at the faculty dining venue are also from the BUG farm.
"The Lure and Lore of Yosemite" is the most comprehensive exhibition to date of art, literature and ephemera relating to the history of the Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Big Tree Grove. Visitors to the exhibit will get a powerful sense of the impact of tourism on Yosemite in the decades between 1870 and 1900. Highlights include: lithographs by San Francisco artist George Holbrook Baker, magnificent mammoth plate photographs by Carleton Watkins and an original pencil sketch by Thomas Ayres, the first artist ever to draw Yosemite. The exhibit also features examples of rare 19th century ephemera that attest to the intense commercial activity of this period.
Marianna Grossman, SSV's Executive Director facilitates a dynamic interactive lecture titled "Regenerative Capitalism and Radical Regionalism: Creating Solutions at the Scale of the Challenge."
