Please join us for the Salmon Creek Watershed Progress Report & Community Social
Sunday 2/26 3-6pm at 1935 Bohemian Hwy. in Occidental
Now that Friday Markets are over, it truly feels like the holiday season is upon us. With concerts and charity benefits to attend and presents to buy, it’s sure to be a jolly time. Occidental is jumping full swing into the festivities-- and you probably don’t want to miss any of it.
I’ve been wanting to interview Brock Dolman, our local permaculture god, for years. But he’s always gallivanting around the world, leading trainings and speaking at conferences.
Brock’s been doing that a long time actually. In 1987, he was in Nicaragua near the Honduran border, on a construction brigade helping to build houses and a school for the Sandinistas in the thick of the US-sponsored Contra War. Later during that journey through Central and South America, Brock met the woman (Carol Nieukirk) he was to be married to for 20 years. Several years later, Brock and Carol were invited to help purchase a parcel of land in Occidental, now famously known as the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center.

Acclaimed Gypsy Jazz guitarist/composer Stephane Wrembel offers Guitar Workshop and Concert at O.C.A on Sunday, October 27.
Call it “Guitar Serendipity” or just coincidence, anyone who loves to play or hear the versatile instrument must make their way to Occidental Center for the Arts, the acoustically pleasing “home for all the arts”at Bohemian Highway and Graton Rd. to hear an outstanding variety of world- class guitar performances in October.
The First Valley Ford Antique Fair will be October 11, 12, 13, 14 at 14435, from 10a.m. to 4p.m. at 14380 and 14435 Hwy 1 in Valley Ford, and will feature American, European, and Asian antiques and curios. At the same time, Rocker Oysterfeller’s & The Valley Ford Hotel will celebrate Oktoberfest, transforming into a German biergarden for the entire weekend, offering a full German menu with German beer and Bavarian music. The postcard I received for this event had a really cool grouping of items, so check it out!
