This is not a Weston A. Price event, but we thought it might be of interest to some of our members. We posted about a similar event here.

A Crash Course in the Microbiome of the Digestive Tract

With Sue Ishaq, PhD, Research Assistant Professor of Microbial Ecology at the University of Oregon



February 8, 2018 | Doors open @ 5PM | $5 Suggested Donation
With the rise of research into the microorganisms that live in the digestive tract, “you are what you eat” has taken on a new meaning.  These complex microbial communities help the host get the most nutritional value out of their food, they teach the immune system “friend” from “foe”, and they make up a fundamental part of our physiology.  But, these gut communities can have dramatic effects on health.  In this talk, microbial ecologist Sue Ishaq will give a crash course in the gut microbiome, including the effect of maternal influences, diet, and probiotics, and discuss current research in animals and humans.


Sue is a research professor at the University of Oregon, in the Biology and the Built Environment center, who studies how humans affect the indoor microbiome and how it affects us back.  She got her Bachelor’s in animal science from the University of Vermont in 2007, and her PhD in Animal, Nutrition, and Food Sciences from UVM in 2015.  Her doctoral study focused on the rumen microbiome of moose, as well as a number of other wild and domestic animal species.  Prior to taking a position at UO, Sue was at Montana State University for two years studying microbial ecology in animals and soil.


Science Pub Eugene is a monthly event that is open to anyone and everyone. No RSVP or scientific background required. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks, and knowledge! For more information or to sign up for our mailing list, email: sciencepub@omsi.edu.

The Vaxxed Bus is coming to Eugene! Special Events June 14th!

This comes to us from a local vaccine activist.  We are including it as a service to our local members who would like to learn more about the vaccine controversy.

Dear Friends,

The Vaxxed bus is coming to Eugene on June 14th.  We have two great events planned for that day.  We would love your participation.

Right now our main priority is finding people to share their stories of vaccine injury or finding people to share their experience of being healthy and vaccine free.  This includes everyone from medical professionals to mamas.  If you know anyone who is willing to “be brave” enough to share their story please have them contact me to arrange a time to be interviewed by the Vaxxed team.  Help us spread the word about this find some great people in our community who can share experiences.

The daytime event is a free and family-friendly open house at the Lamb Cottage located at the base of Skinner’s Butte, by the River Play Park.  The bus will be parked there and the Vaxxed team will be doing interviews.  At the cottage, Dr. Suzanne Humphries will be signing copies of her book, Oregonians For Medical Freedom will have a table, and Vaxxed will be selling their merchandise.  (At the moment there is still room for three more business or organizations to table there.  If you would like to do some outreach or sell something at the daytime event please let me know.  Table and chairs will be provided.)

That evening at the David Minor Theater we will show a clip of Vaxxed, a clip of The Truth about Vaccines, then have a panel discussion and a Q&A with Dr. Suzanne Humphries (Dissolving Illusions), Polly Tommey (Vaxxed,) and Jennifer Margulis PhD. (The Vaccine Friendly Plan).

Attached are the fliers for the events.  (There is a basic hand flier a nicer, larger flier.)  Please share this information in your newsletters, in emails to your list serve, on your facebook pages, and most importantly by word of mouth.  I can drop a full sized flier and hand-fliers off to your offices on Thursday, just let me know if you would like some.

There is still an opportunity to help sponsor these events.  If you are interested in doing so please let me know.  Your business can be recognized as a sponsor or your contribution can be anonymous.  If you sponsor, we will reserve you seats for the evening event.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns feel free to send me an email or give me a call.

All best,

Stacey Black

Fun With Fermentation this Saturday!

Hi all,

Hope you enjoyed the snow!  I’ve been snowed in without internet (or hot running water) for the past week.  Still had a nice vacation at home.

The Eugene Chapter is planning to attend the 8th annual Fun with Fermentation Festival this Saturday, January 14th, 2017, and we are calling on you to help.  We need some more volunteers.  Can you spare an hour or two to set up or staff our booth?  We can use people with all levels of skill and familiarity with WAPF principles.

Can you do any of these tasks? (pick one or more):

  • Carry boxes?
  • Set information out on the table?
  • Smile at people who come up?
  • Talk with people about the Weston A. Price Foundation principles?
  • Refer people to our website?
  • Pack boxes and load them back into the car?

If so, we need you!  Volunteers get in free, and its a lot of fun!

For more details about the event see: https://www.evensi.us/8th-annual-fun-with-fermentation-festival-lane-community/190310745

Contact me ASAP to let me know if I can count on you.



Vaxxed coming to Eugene in one week!

I received this email from a local activist. Thanks to all of you who called local theaters, people in Eugene will now have the opportunity to see the movie Vaxxed.  Although vaccination has never been the main focus of our message, the right to make informed decisions about our own health IS central to the Weston A. Price Foundation message.

It’s happening!

The David Minor Theater is going to show Vaxxed starting June 10th.  I will let you know as soon as show times are announced and tickets go on sale.


Please stop calling and emailing now.  Thank you for your efforts.

Update 6/4/16:

Tickets go on sale Monday at 4:30PM, you can get them in person or over the phone.  DavidMinorTheater.com
This film brings into light government corruption at the CDC.
Feel free to join our facebook group (and add members) to stay in the loop.


I need your help to promote the film in any way you can.  It’s important to have many people working on this, as we only have one week to spread the word.

It is time to start reaching out to your clients, your children’s pediatricians, elected officials (especially your Senator), family, friends, chiropractors, yoga studios, people you know in the health care field, midwives and doulas you know, your connections in the media, etc.

If you would like to be a ticket angel and purchase some tickets for those less fortunate please let me know and I will help facilitate that.
If you would like me to drop off fliers to you, please let me know I will be happy to do so.
When the time comes, consider purchasing some extra tickets and sell them from your office or give them away to people you know will use them.

Let’s sell this film out for weeks!

Side note, I am trying to get some of the people from Vaxxed to come here for a Q & A, I will keep you posted on that if it evolves.

Let me know if you would like any more information or if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
Yahoo and thank-you,
Stacey Black


Update 6/6/16: Attached is a printable poster.  Please post and distribute.

Classes at Natural Grocers

Don’t forget, our very own Yaakov Levine (Creswell/Cottage Grove WAPF Chapter Leader) teaches classes at Natural Grocers every month.

Check out their website for the current schedule:


I am particularly interested in one called:

Can Your Food Choices Save the Planet?

Throughout history, civilizations that have destroyed their environments have disappeared. Industrial agriculture in the United States is destroying our environment and jeopardizing the American way of life. How can one person influence change in the face of such a problem? Farmers who raise animals on managed pasture provide a beacon of hope and a way in which your food choices can save the planet! – See more at: https://www.naturalgrocers.com/nutrition-and-health/events/events-calendar/can-your-food-choices-save-the-planet-37/#sthash.39D7DG7R.dpuf

That’s My Farmer: April 14, 2016

That’s My Farmer is not a Weston Price event, but it fits right in with our recent talk about where to find local foods. Please check them out!

That’s My Farmer is a unique partnership between 13 Eugene faith communities and 12 area farms. This annual ‘meet the farmers’ event is held every April to showcase local CSA programs and encourage people to buy direct from their farmers and eat the best and most nutritious food on God’s earth.

CSA participants buy directly from local farms. Households pay at the beginning of the growing season to share the risk with farm families and give them much needed cash flow to sustain their farm businesses. In return, investing families receive a box of fresh farm products each week throughout the growing season. Most CSA programs deliver fruits and vegetables; some include products such as meat, eggs, honey, cheese and bread.

Celebrate the farmers who grow our food and steward our land at this fun, family-friendly event. All proceeds from the event go to the That’s My Farmer Low Income Fund, which subsidizes CSA shares for families in need. Anyone can contribute to the TMF Low Income Fund at any time throughout the year.
