Come one, come all. The Bent Science Salon officially opens in two weeks, on Thursday, September 21 at 7:00pm. First up: Weird Things in the Woods, channeled through a Weird Thing himself, yours truly, Jim Chatfield. This is only the first of these salons, continuing on the third Thursday of every month: next will be Dan Herms on Plant Phenology (Not Phrenology) and Climate Change, on October 19.
The Bent Science Salon is held at Bent Ladder Cidery and Winery at the Rittman Orchard at 13548 Mount Eaton Road, Doylestown Ohio in extreme northeast Wayne County, Ohio. On September 21 check out the weird stylings (samples) that I bring, bring your own weird things in the woods samples, and be prepared to talk nature and nurture, science and sociology.
The venue is beautiful, food is available and delicious and ciders and wines are splendid. We will talk plant galls and gall makers, fungi perfecti and imperfecti, symbioses from lichens to aborted entolomas and shoestring fungi, parasitic plants, and…
The program is full of free thinking and in fact, free of charge. Optional food and drink does come with the usual fees. In Nature’s infinite book of secrecy a little I can read, said Shakespeare. Come read and sing with us, just a little more.
