Waste not

WASTE NOT, WANT NOT DAY

Join CUESA in honoring Hunger Action Month. Come to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market for Waste Not, Want Not Day to meet local organizations like Cooking  Matters, find out how you can reduce food waste at home, and participate in  CUESA’s fresh produce drive. More than 40 percent of food in the United States  goes uneaten—that’s  20 pounds of food per person per month. Meanwhile, 17.6  million U.S. households are food insecure, meaning they lack consistent access  to healthy, nourishing food. CUESA explores ways of closing the food gap and  making the most of the bounty. There will be a Food Runners produce drive, Discovery Station, cooking demonstrations and more. Saturday, September 20, 8am – 2pm.  http://www.cuesa.org/event/waste-not-want-not-day

WHO’S BURIED THERE?

This weekend you can enjoy two free presentations at the Cypress Lawn Cemetary in Colma. Join a walking tour with antique expert Terry Hamburg, “A Celebration on Vintners and Liquor/Wine Merchants” Saturday at 1:30. You will likely see Winemaker Raymond E. Signorello’s two granite benches. One reads “No poem was ever written by a drinker of water” and the other states, “In  water one sees one’s own face but in wine one beholds the heart of another.”

Author and historian Michael Svanevik brings his subjects back to life  when he presents a lecture on Sunday from 2 – 4pm: “Hollywood Endings (When  the Stars Flicker Out). ” His books include guides to the cemetery. More information at http://www.cypresslawnheritagefoundation.com/events.html
