Thought Provoking Book Discussion
November 13, 6:00 p.m.
ON THE HEELS OF THE LOCAVORE CHALLENGE, which promoted eating locally grown and produced food, gather with us to discuss a stimulating book on the subject, “The Town That Food Saved: How One Community Found Vitality in Local Food” by Ben Hewitt (Rodale Press, 2009) and explore what might work here.
The book takes an inquisitive peek behind the curtain of a town dubbed “the
Silicon Valley of local food,” Hardwick, Vermont (pop. 3,200) that jump-started its economy with a stunning number of food-based businesses built by entrepreneurs supporting each other in a variety of ways.
Book discussion participants can purchase the book at Morgan Outdoors for
the discounted price of $19.95 and $17.95 for NOFA-NY members. Books may
also be borrowed from the library.
Participants are welcome to bring a light
local refreshment to share.
Beverages will be provided.
Hosted by Maria Grimaldi, Catskill Hudson Regional Rep, NOFA-NY
and Morgan Outdoors.
