Refillery truck returns to the Palisades

Sep 30

Monthly on Thursdays: Temescal Canyon Blvd

Upcoming Dates:

September 30, 3-5 pm

October 21, 3-5 pm

November 18, 2-4 pm 

Reduce single use plastic pollution by refilling your household products at Refillery LA’s mobile refill station offering eco-friendly soaps, detergents, personal care products, pet shampoo and more. Bring your own clean and dry container or purchase one at the mobile refill truck. Products are sold by the ounce, less the weight of the container.

Resilient Palisades has arranged for the Refillery LA Truck to come to the same location as the weekly Thursday farmer’s market – about 1/2 mile up Temescal from PCH and about 0.3 mile south of Bowdoin Street on the east side of the road.

To learn more, visit the Refillery LA website, where you will find a description of how the service works, and a list of products offered.

The Overstory Book Discussion

Sep 22

Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 7:00 pm

via Zoom

 

Resilient Palisades and Friends of the Palisades Library present a Palisades Reads Book Discussion of The Overstory by Richard Powers

 

This Pulitzer Prize-winning work spins an intricate tale about the power and magic of trees. It’s an excellent summer read. Start reading soon as it isn’t short! Then join us for an in-depth discussion. (It will be possible to join our discussion without having finished the book – but why miss out on this fabulous read?)

From the author’s website :
The Overstory … is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.”
