The Lexington Localvore


This event has been rescheduled for a TBD date in June. If you’re looking for something to do on the originally scheduled date of April 29th, might we suggest the LexGWAC sponsored lecture at Cary Hall, Global Warming, End of Oil, Perfect Storm

Join Lexington Community Education for a night exploring local food in our community. Janet Kern, Founder of the Lexington Community Farm Coalition, Sonia DeMarta, Founder of the Lexington Farmers’ Market, and Karen Masterson, Owner of Nourish Restaurant will explore the where, when, why and how of Farmers’ markets, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), SPIN farming, and Community Farms in our area. We will examine the differences between locally grown, organic, and IPM, get the latest thinking regarding community farming in town, discover how farmers and gardeners can fight climate change, learn about an Interfaith gardening effort to help the hungry, and hear why local food in local restaurants is an increasingly important ingredient.
