Environmentalist to Speak on Effects of Pesticide Use on Lawns (Thu. 14 Dec, 2017 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm)

Patricia (Patti) Wood, a leading expert on the environment and related health issues, will address Forum members at their meeting on Thursday, December 14, 2017 in the Scott Room at the Scarsdale Library. Refreshments will be available at 7:30 pm and the meeting will begin at 8:00 pm. The program is open to the public..

Ms. Wood's presentation will focus on health concerns raised by the significant and growing use of pesticides by homeowners and landscapers in their quest for the "perfect" lawn. A growing body of science has linked exposure to these chemical toxins with a myriad of serious human health problems, harm to wildlife and their habitats and the degradation of our water supplies. As Ms. Wood will explain, pesticide-free, natural lawns are living ecosystems, capable of sequestering carbon in their biomass, recharging and filtering rainwater and pollutants, and cooling ambient temperatures. Advances in soil science and natural lawn care product development in the past few years can produce that weed-free, dense lush turf that can satisfy even the most ardent lover of lawns.

Ms. Wood is a founder and executive director of Grassroots Environmental Education, a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the relationship between environmental exposures and human health risks. Grassroots serves local and state governments, health care providers, school systems, community groups and other environmental groups and individuals nationwide.

She is the author of two books on health-related environmental issues The ChildSafe School and Helping to Heal; was a co-producer of Our Children at Risk, a thirty minute documentary film which explores the latest scientific research linking environmental toxins to children's health issues, and The BabySafe Project, a program designed to educate pregnant women about the potential risk to the developing fetus from exposures to wireless radiation; and was the co-creator of the web-based initiative, www.howgreenismytown.org which addresses climate change, sustainability and environmental health on a local level. Ms. Woods has received numerous awards from government entities and private organizations for her work on these issues.

A Visiting Scholar at Adelphi University, Ms. Wood lectures on the environment and related health issues in the College of Nursing and Public Health. Ms. Wood is also a guest lecturer at SUNY Stony Brook, Pace University and Hostos Community College.

Commenting on Ms. Wood's planned program Darlene Lefrancois-Haber Co-Chair, along with Michelle Sterling, of the Forum's Sustainability Committee, said "We are delighted that Patti Wood is bringing her expertise to the Forum. We look forward to the opportunity to learn from a leading proponent of environmentally healthy living and hope to see many of our members and others from our community at the presentation on December 14th."

lore-posterForeign & Independent Film Series "Lore" (2013)

Germany - 109 Minutes: Friday, December 15th at 1:45 PM (no registration)

Story: Left to fend for themselves after their SS officer father and mother, staunch Nazi believers, are interred by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a harrowing journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a journey across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic Thomas, a mysterious young refugee, Lore soon finds her world shattered by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

Based on the book "The Dark Room" by Rachel Seiffert.

Bourbon and Cognac Tasting at Zachys (Fri. 15 Dec, 2017 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm)

jefferson-prunier-150x150Friday, December 15 ˑ 4:00pm - 7:00pm
Jefferson's Bourbon and Prunier Cognac

Jefferson's was founded in 1997 by Trey Zoeller and his father Chet. These two come from a long line of whiskey purveyors dating back eight generations to Trey's great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother, who was arrested in 1799 for the "production and sales of spirituous liquors." While an amazing story, it is not what makes their products unique. Trey and Chet have always strived to push the boundaries of "bourbon," in order to create something truly unique while still honoring tradition. Their special cask finishes have included finishing barrels from Château Suduiraut and Château Pichon Baron of Bordeaux as well as Groth and Pritchard Hill of Napa, and they have truly broadened the horizon of the typical bourbon drinker and caught the attention of many wine savants as well, such as your friends at Zachys.

Prunier began as a Cognac trading company in the 1700s, focusing on bottling and transportation for other companies. A century later the family established a base in the region of Cognac and began to source their own eaux-de-vie directly from growers and distillers. Prunier's classical style is passed down orally from generation to generation in order to preserve their "Old House, Old Cognac" style. Fifth generation, Stephane Burnez has spent the last 25 years painstakingly smelling and sampling each barrel and demijohn to ensure that his family legacy survives the test of time.
