Do you know where your food comes from? It seems like a simple question, but if it is so simple, why is it so difficult to answer? In an age of industrialized food systems, the average consumer has little or no relationship with their food.
These concerns are why the Nature Center is hosting the Northwest Earth Institute’s discussion course Menu for the Future. This six-part class helps to foster a dialogue about food and its relationship to sustainability.
Our first session, “What’s Eating America” will be held on Tuesday, October 20 at 7 PM. The following sessions will be held each Tuesday for the next five weeks at the same time.
