Interested in the local food movement but think it’s too expensive? Join us for Real Food, Real Farmers, a free forum where you can become friendly with the people who could grow some of your food. From 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 17, at the Unitarian Fellowship, several local growers will talk about the differences between the food that comes from their farms and the products of industrial agriculture.
They’ll answer your questions and even tackle the issue of why locally grown food is more expensive, why it’s worth it, and possible ways to make it more affordable.
