InFARMation (and Beer!)

Tonight at Roots Organic Brewery - 1530 SE 7th Ave. in Portland!

Friends of Family Farmers presents:

September 8th: Author and food activist Jill Richardson will be in town to discuss her new book Recipe for America. The book demonstrates how sustainable agriculture—where local farms raise food that is healthy for consumers and animals and does not damage the environment—offers the only solution to America’s food crisis. In addition to highlighting the harmful conditions at factory farms, this timely and necessary book details the rising grassroots food movement, which is creating an agricultural system that allows people to eat sustainably, locally, and seasonally. Jill Richardson blogs about food issues at Daily Kos and at her own blog, La Vida Locavore. She is also a member of the advisory board of the Organic Consumers Association.
