This presentation will explore:

A revolution in transportation is happening. Podcars will run 100% on solar power using only the width of the right-of-way. Energy efficient, lightweight and fast, you speed on when others pull off, nonstop to your destination. In this installment, I will present a brief overview of the topic, show two YouTube videos describing Podcars, use the Chrome web browser to explore three relevant web sites, and finish up with some question and answer time at the end.
Please join us for this interesting look into an up and coming new transportation mode!

A Presentation & Workshop By Shelkie Tao
California is in its fifth year of a historical drought and every effort is required to conserve water. One of the most effective ways is to replace the lawn with a water efficient garden. While many people know about this, it would be good to see more of these gardens in our cities and towns. How can we reach more people, provide help, and ultimately have more water efficient gardens? In this presentation, Shelkie will review the work she has done with her website waterefficientgarden.com, and brainstorm with everyone how to best promote and advance the idea. Please join us for this interesting and important workshop and discussion.
