A Tasty Event This Friday Night

holthaus.jpgDo you eat food? If so, does any of it come from the ground? If you’re nodding you’re head, there’s an event in town this Friday night that you’re not going to want to miss.

Gary Holthaus, author of From the Farm to the Table: What All Americans Need to Know about Agriculture, will appear at 7 p.m. at the Northfield Arts Guild. Holthaus will read from his book and facilitate a discussion about topics raised in his research. There will also be a reception that includes refreshments provided by Just Food Co-op.

The event, sponsored by River City Books, Just Food, and the Northfield Arts Guild, is free and open to the public. The NAG is located 304 Division Street in downtown Northfield.

The book is on sale at River City for 15 percent off through Sept. 21. If you can’t make it but would like a signed copy, contact the store or order online.

Here’s a short summary of the book:

In “From the Farm to the Table,” more than forty farm families from America’s heartland discuss the practices and values that relate to their land, work, and communities. Their stories reveal that those who make their living in agriculture — despite stereotypes perpetuated by the media — are savvy to the influence of world politics on local issues. Holthaus demonstrates how economic, governmental, legal, and business developments play an influential role in every farmer’s life. The book also explores farmers’ experiences, offering a deeper understanding of how we all can create sustainable and vibrant communities consistent with agrarian values.

I look forward to seeing you fellow eaters on Friday night.
