HAPPY HOUR 5/10!!!

Lettuce gather together as thyme is moving fast and pear-y soon it will be summer!  Come to happy hour endive in to some a-maize-ing and radicchio-lous conversation over beers and snacks! Mmm, I’m salvia-ating already at the thought!

Spring BBQ/Potluck

Hey all,

It’s finally sunny (and hot) again! Let’s have another reason to celebrate, before we all are busy with our summer plans.

WHAT: We’re hosting a BBQ/potluck brunch at our house, just next to Umall. Some tasty Thai desserts/snacks, and probably some drinks await!

WHEN: Sun 5 May, from 12 PM

TO-DO: Let me know if you can make it and what you’ll bring to share at

Hope to see you!

Paul Kasemsap


Warmth, humidity, showers, powdery mildew, it feels like spring!

Come celebrate the start of the quarter by getting together with other cool plant people for drinks and/or snacks!


5:12 PM @ CITY HALL (the bar, not the official city office)!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Hike + Lunch = Fun!

Hi Everyone!
Hope y’all are excited for Presidents Day Weekend! If you’re staying in town and looking for a fun Saturday (2/16) day trip join us for morning hiking and lunch in Winters!
We will leave Davis at 9:00 AM for hiking at Stebbins Cold Canyon Trail! It’s a 4 mile round trip that should take us around 3 – 4 hours. After the hike we will get lunch at Berryessa Brewing Co! There is currently a low chance of showers, but we will keep you updated on the weather forecast.
If you are interested in only coming for lunch please indicate that on the signup sheet and we hopefully we can match you to a car.
Please bring hiking shoes, warm clothes, rain jacket, snacks, water, and your wallet for the trip! Please fill out the Signup Sheet and we look forward to having a fun-filled Saturday!
Sincerely,Social Team
