East Sacramento Farmers Market—don’t miss this great community asset

East Sacramento Farmers Market—don’t miss this great community asset

by Michael Saeltzer

Kudos to East Sacramentan Ann Vulech Clark for organizing what is fast becoming another one of our community’s best features. The market opened in May and is held every Saturday next to the Shepard Garden and Arts Center, the small section of McKinley Park just east of the main park (rose garden, playground, pond).  Ann envisions the market to be a combination farmers market, community event, and a great gathering spot to begin a Saturday with your neighbors.

To find out more online you can visit Facebook East Sacramento Farmers Market.  When you are at the market you might want to take the time to chat it up with the vendors who are some of the most friendly there are.  They offer smiles, and incredible research and information about our mother earth and what really makes her happy – all ABSOLUTELY FREE OF CHARGE!  Take the time to read just a bit more about them further on in this article...

Center for Sacramento History Presents Speaker Series -- Mining California: An Ecological History

Center for Sacramento History Presents Speaker Series -- Mining California: An Ecological History

The Center for Sacramento History is proud to present a special Speaker Series event -- Mining California: An Ecological History on Wednesday evening, July 16.

The community is invited to attend this thought-provoking presentation by historian and Temple University Professor Andrew C. Isenberg, who will address the systematic exploitation of the Golden State’s natural resources. The rapid industrialization of logging, ranching, farming, mining and urbanization burdened the state’s primitive environment. Isenberg will cover how California’s environment was never submissive and how nature proved to be capricious and maddening to those engaged in turning it into wealth.  At the conclusion of his presentation, Isenberg will answer questions and sign copies of his book, Mining California: An Ecological History (available for purchase that evening).
