Farming as if Nature Matters: an Inspiring Panel Discussion

948

Interested in hearing some of the region’s most passionate “heroines of sustainable agriculture” speak about their life’s profession? On Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22, a group of local women farmers will gather for a discussion about our food – where it comes from, how it’s grown and who is growing it. Agricultural luminaries such as Annie Main of Good Humus Produce; Trini Campbell of Riverdog Farm; and Judith Redmond of Full Belly Farm will be on hand to inform, share stories and answer questions about the farming life.

You can also enjoy a $10 organic supper before the event prepared by Eileen’s Kitchen, and there’s even an Amador Foothill wine tasting – both are available from 5:30-6:30 pm.

All proceeds from the events benefit The Soil Born Farms Urban Agriculture & Education Project and the Good Humus Land Preservation Project.

When: Wednesday, April 22, 7-9 pm
Where: 24th Street Theatre, 2791 24th Street, Sacramento

Tickets for the events are $15 general, $10 for Co-op owners, and $5 for children under 12. Tickets are available at the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op (1900 Alhambra Boulevard, Sacramento; 916 455-2667) and the Davis Food Co-op (620 G Street, Davis 530 758-2667).
