Grown right here: The value of local food

The topic of the next Pippy Park Friends/Heritage Committee Free Public Lecture is “Grown right here; The value of local food“.

Speakers: Mark Wilson, Emily Doyle, Mike Rabinowitz, Hazen Scarth, Kristie Jameson and Allison Dyer

As you all know, Pippy Park is home to many food-growing initiatives, including not less than three community gardens, a commercial farm (our good friends at Mount Scio Farm), a botanical garden with wonderful hands-on gardening programs, and the Friends’ own family garden program organized by Emily Doyle.

As an outreach initiative, this lecture is being held outside the Park, at the third floor “Rocket Room” at the Rocket Bakery (formerly Auntie Crae’s) at 272 Water Street. The lecture starts at 7:30 pm, Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Refreshments will be served following the lecture.
