Submitted by the Event Organizer
An upsurge of farmers, cooks, gardeners, and activists are taking back the food system with inspiring ideas. Sit back and recharge with tales from author Mark Winne, whose new book Food Rebels, Guerrilla Gardeners, and Smart Cookin’ Mamas: Fighting Back in an Age of Industrial Agriculture is full of colorful “local doers.”
The audience will also enjoy a stunning slide show of farmer portraits by Anne Hamersky, the photographer behind the new book Farm Together Now: A Portrait of People, Places and Ideas for a New Food Movement. Along with authors Amy Franceschini and Daniel Tucker, Hamersky traveled the country last year capturing the lives of extraordinary people creating a more sustainable, cleaner and safer food system.
The discussion will begin at 6:30 and a reception with farmers’ market refreshments will follow. The authors will also be available to sign books. The event is free but we ask that you RSVP here.
