As autumn is here and the growing season comes to an end, the Sustainable World Book Club happily announces Barbara Taylor-Laino of Midsummer Farm will lead the discussion of four books on the theme of local and sustainable food production.
There are many challenges facing the modern food industry, and Barbara’s work at Midsummer Farm demonstrates sustainable solutions we can all learn from. Beyond offering a certified organic CSA, Barbara also runs a plant nursery that is a great boon to local gardeners, and she teaches courses on designing gardens, organic gardening, harvesting and storing food and herbs, raising and using medicinal herbs, and so much more.
Please join us this winter, as Barbara shares her expertise with us in discussions of:
— Omnivore’s Dilemma, by Michael Pollan (Tuesday, Nov 17, 2015, 11 AM at the Florida Public Library)
— The Dirty Life, by Kristin Kimball (Tuesday, Dec 15, 2015, 11 AM at the Albert Wisner Library, in Warwick)
(On Tuesday, January 19, 2016, we will discuss a non-food book, Our Stolen Future, by Theo Colborn, et al., about endocrine disruption.)
— Eating on the Wild Side, by Jo Robinson (Tuesday, Feb 16, 2016, 11 AM at the Albert Wisner Library, in Warwick)
— Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver (Tuesday, Mar 15, 2016, 11 AM at the Florida Public Library)
So find a cozy place to hibernate, read these books, and join us at the book club. Next spring you will be informed and ready for your garden and the farmers markets like never before.
