Anyone 21 or older is welcome to discuss the latest trends in science and technology at the Science on Tap event series, whose motto is “Drink up and get smart.”
The series starts Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. with the topic of “Give Me the Dirt! Grow Your Own Food With Farmer Jay.” The session is 30 minutes, with time afterward for questions and answers. Admission is free. Arrive early to get a seat and a drink.
Farmer Jay, also known as Jason McCobb, is an industry expert in agricultural sustainability and specializes in urban gardening. He learned from Bob Cannard, a longtime farmer for Alice Waters and her renowned restaurant Chez Panisse in California. Jay’s philosophy is that “the garden is an extension of nature,” and he never uses pesticides or synthetic chemicals.
He is the founder of Farmer Jay’s Jr. Sprouts, a program developed for children to learn about where food comes from and to pass on the art of sustainable agriculture. To learn more about Farmer Jay, visit myfarmerjay.com.
