Cafe Scientifique Orlando is a gathering of scientifically-inclined people in Central Florida, who meet at a cafe, coffee house, pub, or nonacademic location to discuss events and ideas in the world of science. We enjoy beer and wine, and we use plain language to talk about extraordinary ideas.

Green Deane” is a speaker Chad has been eager to book for a while. Deane Jordan is a popular Youtube figure, engaging explainer, expert in the flora around us in Central Florida, and reviver of nearly-forgotten wisdom about plants. His web site and advocacy have the same name, “Eat the Weeds”.

In online videos, and in his foraging classes that he gives somewhat regularly, he describes how many of the plants around us are worthy of far more than visual appreciation or herbicide. After a while with Green Deane, one will probably know how to identify plants safe to consume, and to make salads, teas, and breads from the materials in one’s back yard.
