Ali Berlow joins us on Opening Day, Thursday May 26
We are so excited to welcome a visit from Ali Berlow, this Thursday, May 26 from noon to 4:30 PM.
Ali is the acclaimed author of “The Food Activist Handbook: Big & Small Things You Can Do To Help Provide Fresh Healthy Food For Your Community.” From the book’s description (because I can’t say it any better!): “Small steps can create big changes in your community’s food quality and food security, helping to get more healthy food to more people and support a better food system. Ali Berlow shows you dozens of things that anyone can do, from creating a neighborhood kitchen for preserving fresh food to mapping farmland, connecting food pantries with food producers, starting a school garden, and organizing a community composting initiative. Every action you take can help keep farmers on the land and family farms intact, keep money in the local economy, reduce the carbon footprint associated with food transportation, and preserve local landscapes. If you’ve had enough of E. coli scares, disappearing farmland, pesticide problems, and hunger in your community, this inspiring book will show you exactly how one person really can make a difference.”
Locally, you have probably heard Ali on WCAI’s “The Local Food Report.” She is a fount of knowledge on the local and national food front. Ali looks forward to an afternoon of stimulating conversation and will be happy to sign her book for you.
