Real Food, Real Farmers: a forum for people who want safer, healthier food

March 8, 2013

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.

The Unitarian Fellowship is located in Mt. Kisco, at 236 South Bedford Road, Rte 172, across from Rippowam Cisqua School. For more information, contact Suzi Novak at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
