April 13th Slow Foor Evening: Elizabeth Henderson, Food Justice and Slow Food

Our special guest for the April Slow Food Evening is Elizabeth Henderson, discussing how we can all participate in creating a more just food system!
Elizabeth was one of the co-founders of Peacework Farm, producing organically grown vegetables for the fresh market for over 30 years. She is a member of the Board of Directors of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY), and represents NOFA  on the Management Committee of the Agricultural Justice Project. In 2009 NOFA-NY honored her with a Lifetime Achievement Award.  Her writings on organic agriculture appear in The Natural Farmer and other publications, and she is the lead author of Sharing the Harvest: A Citizen’s Guide to Community Supported Agriculture (Chelsea Green, 2007).

As usual, we will be all sharing in a potluck dinner. Come meet other people interested in Slow Food, eat great food, and participate in a stimulating evening of discussion. The event is at the Rochester Brainery in the Village Gate and starts at 5:30pm. Space is limited, so please RSVP at RSVP here for event . And see our guidelines for what to bring!
