About Farmlab Public Salons

Farmlab Public Salons began in earnest in mid-January, 2007, and continue weekly, with presentations every Friday @ noon about fine art, the environment, cultural history, economics, and other relevant topics.

Past Farmlab Public Salon speakers have included: Mycologist Paul Stamets; NASA JPL climatologist William Patzert; artists such as Fritz Haeg, Stephen Glassman, and Joel Tauper; gallerist Mark Allen; planning commissioners Jane Usher, Diego Cordoso, and Farmlab consultant Mike Woo; as well as a long list of likewise distinguished and personable experts in a variety of endeveors.

Prior to the Farmlab Public Salon series, the Not A Cornfield project -- from which Farmlab grew out of -- featured biweekly Friday Night @ Not A Cornfield Salons.

Among the presenters in that series were: Manuel Castells; Michael Dear; Larry Santoyo; James Rojas; Galen Cranz; the group, Ajpop Tecum; and again, many distinguished others.

The Farmlab team thanks everyone who has participated in the series so far -- whether by attending, speaking, writing about, providing food for, or otherwise helping out.

Farmlab Public Salons are free-of-charge and open to the public.
