Upcoming event: Clark Farm welcomes

Brian Donahue to Carlisle, MA

Brian Donahue- New England Food Vision
Thursday, April 10th at 7pm at the First Religious Society, Carlisle, MA
 
Recent droughts in California may make us wonder about where our vegetables and fruit will come from in the years to come --especially when nutritionists tell us we should be eating twice as many vegetables and fruit as we do now!  Many people are enthusiastic about growing more of our food locally.  Yet there is very little farmland currently in production in New England.  How much of our own food could New England really produce?  What social and environmental benefits could more local food production provide?  Could we farm more sustainably, and still provide healthy food for all?  Is it wise to clear some forest to expand farmland?
 
Brian Donahue, an environmental historian and farmer will present “A New England Food Vision:Healthy Food for All, Sustainable Farming and Fishing, Thriving Communities." Donahue is Associate Professor of American Environmental Studies at Brandeis University and author of The Great Meadow: Farmers and the Land in Colonial Concord and Reclaiming the Commons: Community Farms and Forests in a New England Town. He co-founded and for 12 years directed Land’s Sake, a nonprofit community farm in Weston, Massachusetts. In his talk Donahue shares a bold vision that calls for our region to build the capacity to produce at least 50% of its food by 2060. As part of their education mission, Clark Farm in Carlisle will be hosting this event. Please arrive for refreshments starting at 7pm. The talk will begin at 7:30. RSVP to info@clarkfarmcarlisle.com to let them know you’ll be attending.
