PPN 21st Annual Big Time Outreach Recap

The 21st annual Pinoleville Pomo Nation Big Time cultural gathering took place over the weekend. The event was once again a success with hundreds of Tribal members and residents from the surrounding area and neighboring states gathering for two days of cultural celebration and education.

To bring our information on how to avoid pesticides to a larger audience, we set up an outreach table where visitors were able to learn one-on-one about avoiding pesticides and homemade, organic pesticide recipes as well as getting their face painted. The face painting helped bring in the youth where our Intern Emily told them about the negative effects of pesticide use while creating beautiful art. The fact paint options included different insects, which represented those who would be most affected by pesticide use.

Enjoy the pictures above, and don’t forget to check out our avoiding pesticides outreach materials from earlier this year.
