Community Happenings

Dusky Grouse Book Club


Winter Session:
This is Your Brain on Food, by Uma Naidoo

We are partnering with Natural Grocers to discuss the book, This is Your Brain on Food by Uma Naidoo.

In this 4 part series we’ll  explore ways we can support our mental health in a proactive and intentional way.

We will be providing small samples of food or drinks that support the ideas of the reading as well.

This is a FREE SERIES!




Our goal is to create a supportive space for our community where we can openly talk about the importance of mental health and how we can positively impact our own mental health through food, drinks and community.


Sundays, 11-12pm in the upstairs conference room at Dusky Grouse Coffee (1585 Mid-Valley DR Unit 4) Discussions will be led by Natural Grocer’s health coach, Courtney Vantubbergen.

*We will be reading the book throughout the series.  You DO NOT need to have the book read by the first meeting.  “Your Brain on Food” is available for checkout at the library or purchase at Dusky Grouse Coffee and Natural Grocers.
