In Defense of Food + NWHS meeting

Author Michael Pollan has a new book out In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto. He was on Talk of the Nation Science Friday
and it was so nice to hear him talking about his manifesto: "
Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." I am excited to read this follow up to his last book, Omnivore's Dilemma.

One other note is the 53rd Annual North West Horticulture Society meeting is coming up January 15, 16 and 17th. I am going to the 'Organic Crops Day'. The 2008 Tilth calendar is another good place to keep an eye on upcoming events and workshops.

I hope you all had a great holiday and are settling into the rhythm of this new year. The days are getting longer...
