Fermentation: What's It All About?
presented by Cheryl Paswater of Contraband Ferments

This program will cover the basic science behind making sauerkraut, why it’s good for you, and we’ll  teach you how to make it yourself. If you are interested in Old World food preservation, gut health, or fermentation in general, this is the class for you.  Fermentation is one of the oldest food processing methods still used today. Scientifically known as zymology, it is the conversion of carbohydrates into alcohols, carbon dioxide, yeast, or bacteria. Beer, miso, sourdough, kefir, kimchi and many other delicious foods we love are the product of fermentation.

Cheryl Paswater is the Chief Fermentationist and CEO of Contraband Ferments as well as an Educator, Health Coach, Artist, Beekeeper, and Writer.  She contributes as a writer for Edible Brooklyn, has guest co-hosted on the radio show “Fuhmentaboudit!” (on Heritage Food Radio Network), co-organizes the NYC Fermentation Festival, and is an organizer of the NYC Ferments Meetup.

Registration suggested beginning Wednesday, January 2 at 10:00 a.m. by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254 or register online.

Robert Moses: the Master Builder of the Empire City
presented by Ronald Brown

From its founding in 1624, New York City was a city of horses. By the 1900s five million people, skyscrapers, and automobiles began to drag the city into the 20th century. Robert Moses emerged as the man who single handedly transformed New York into the Empire City that President George Washington prophesied it would one day become. Moses, like his Biblical name, led New Yorkers from slavery to the horse to freedom in the Holy Land of the automobile between 1924 and 1975. Parkways crisscrossed Long Island, Expressways linked New York with nearby states, bridges and tunnels bound the five boroughs into one, two World’s Fairs made the city world famous, Lincoln Center was the nation’s cultural Mecca, and Jones Beach was the city’s new playground.

The Long Island Parkway System

Dr. Ronald Brown is an authority on the religious history of New York City. He has published three books on the subject - A Religious History of Flushing, Queens;  Into the Soul of African-American Harlem;  How New York Became the Empire City.  He taught history and political science at Touro College since 1994 and world religions at the Unification Theological Seminary since 2002, and designed new classes in New York History and the Religious History of New York for both institutions.  He was a docent at the New York Historical Society from 1992 to 2013,

Empty Quester presented by Donna Korren

A long held belief about becoming an empty nester is that it is a time of vacancy and sadness. In fact,  Empty Nest Syndrome is an actual disorder described as the feeling of loneliness and loss experienced by  parents when their children leave home for good.

Without dismissing any of these feelings which speaker Donna Korren personally understands, she has created the Empty Quester, a blog and a website for recently kid-free parents who are embracing this new life stage. This talk will include acknowledging the extent of what you have accomplished as a parent, honoring the process of letting go and following through, assessing one's skills and talents, and creating a new path to an even more exciting and happy life. Seeing this life stage through the lens of the Empty Quester is one key towards empowerment.

A graduate of Cornell University, with a B.S. in Communications.  Donna is a passionate writer and speaker.
