Thought Provoking Book Discussion
Tuesday, October *30*, 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. Co-sponsored by the Livingston Manor Library.
