Keynote Address: Take Charge of Where Your Food is Grown
with Jack Kittredge and Julie Rawson
Jack and Julie have been farming organically at Many Hands Organic Farm (http://www.mhof.net) in Barre since 1982. They also have been principals in the Massachusetts Chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (http://www.nofamass.org) for a quarter century. Their illustrated presentation will cover how to either get started growing your own food–vegetables, fruit, meat, milk and eggs–or how to buy it from local farmers. The benefits to the physical and emotional health of you and your family, to the local economy, the environment, and to our sense of community will be enormous. The one-hour presentation will be followed by ½ hour for questions and discussion.
