February Sunday Assembly

Our February assembly will feature the engaging Dr. James Cassidy, sharing his love of soil in a talk titled Soil! – What it is & How it works. Please join the Sunday Assembly community on Sunday, February 11th from 3:30 pm to 5:00pm in the Billy Frank J. Conference Center of the Ecotrust building located in downtown Portland.

A passionate teacher and student farm advisor for over a dozen years, Dr. Cassidy is fond of saying “it’s ALL about soil!” According to him, most people only have a vague idea of what soil is and how it works.  During his talk you will learn more than you ever thought possible about soil.  The reason you are alive, what nutrients are, and how soil stores water and nutrients.  The fundamentals that ALL humans on the planet Earth should know!

Dr. Cassidy has been an Instructor of Soil Science at Oregon State University for over 12 years.  The popular introductory class now has over 200 students each term.  James is also the faculty advisor for the wildly popular OSU Organic Growers Club - OSU's student farm.  Coming from a non-traditional background, as a member of the music industry for over 30 years, he is passionate about soil and is popular with students because of his dynamic speaking style.  The student farm project has over 300 student volunteers on its list-serve and continues to grow.  The farm cultivates over 50 different fruit and vegetable crops and is just finishing its 17th season.

 

The Ecotrust building is located at 721 NW 9th Avenue, Suite 200 in Portland, Oregon. The Billy Frank J. Conference Center is located on the 2nd floor. The location offers both ADA parking spaces and an elevator. Free childcare is provided by our Wonder Club volunteers, who cerate engaging and related activities each month for our young children members.
