World Wide Wednesdays: Costa Rica, Cloud Forests and the Coffee You Drink, with Rainforest Rachel Crandell
Free (donation of any amount requested), all ages, 7:30 p.m., amanda@thecommonspace.org
Attendance: 6 people

Our popular monthly series of global adventures continues with tropical ecologist and educator Rachel Crandell, a St. Louisan who has taken numerous trips to the Costa Rican rainforest in conjunction with her work with the Monteverde Conservation League. She'll present a slide talk about the rainforest there, and update us on recent developments regarding fair-trade and shade-grown coffee — a topic near and dear to the hearts of those of us who hang out at People's Coffee! All donations collected will benefit organizations in Costa Rica. Come, enjoy a cup of fair-trade coffee and be enriched!
