Feeding the Future: Stories and Images from the New Frontier of Food and Agriculture
Michael Ableman, celebrated author of “Fields of Plenty”, is coming to Centennial Theatre in North Vancouver on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 7:30pm
Food may become the dominant issue of our time. The industrial system that brings it to us is unraveling, and the cost of that system,ecologically, socially, and personally is enormous. While Ableman will touch on this crisis, he will leave us with a deeper sense of how we can participate in the solutions; on our farms and in our gardens, in our kitchens and at the dining room table, and in the broader communities where we live.
Michael will inspire us with his stories and powerful photographic images of individuals who are using community land, backyard gardens as well as
urban farms for creating socially and ecologically responsible ways of growing food.
