Learn about food, Earth sustainablility at Pale Blue Dot event

The Nature Museum at Grafton will present “Food for Thought,” a daylong event exploring the interrelationship between food and nature to be held on Saturday, May 26. Participants will explore sustainable food systems and the cultural food revolution. This event is part of the Museum’s Pale Blue Dot program series.

Authors, musicians, farmers, business owners and naturalists will offer workshops on everything from cheesemaking, butchering, vermicomposting, to saving songbirds. Presenters will include author and VPR commentator Ron Krupp and kitchen garden designer Ellen Ecker Ogden. Severine von Tscharner Fleming will screen her documentary film, “The Greenhorns,” about a nonprofit organization of the same name that works to support young farmers.
