It was great seeing many of you at our Summer Social event a Grant Park last month. We shared some delicious food and met each other's dogs and families.

SAVE THE DATE: Tuesday, Sept 21, 7 pm

Climate Reality Leader, educator and glacial geologist Frank Granshaw will be attending COP26 in Glascow. He will be discussing broadening engagement by creating "virtual bridges" and how we can be involved in this critical international process. More details to come, mark your calendars!

When and where are we meeting?

We will be following Covid protocols to determine whether we can meet in-person again. We are looking for meeting spaces for the winter months ahead that will allow us to use their space from about 6:30-8:30 pm once a month. In the past, we have met at Community rooms, libraries, an acupuncture school, and an architecture firm office. Please email us if you have access to a place where we could meet in person when it is safe. We expect to continue a hybrid virtual component in addition to meeting physically. If you have an ipad you'd like to donate or skills with this, please let us know!

Watch the July Cooking Demo with Ashwin Prabhu!

Our very own Climate Reality Leader Ashwin Prabhu, member of the Climate-Friendly Food Committee of the Portland Chapter of Climate Reality was the guest chef last month. He demonstrated a unique lima bean coconut curry from his home in the Mumbai region, where he recently relocated.

Take a look at this Climate-Friendly Indian dish and give it a try at home! The recipe can be found here. There are several local Indian stores you can find specialty items.

We have recorded cooking demos over the last 6 months, which you can see on Climate Reality's YouTube channel. Thank you Ashwin!
