Green Apple Talk #1: Eating Green explores the common ground between eating for pleasure and eating politics. How are consumers changing the way they eat, and what impact do those trends really have on the environment? Can people - individually, and as a society - really be healthier? Join us at the Strand for a sure to be lively panel discussion with Tim Fitzgerald of Environmental Defense, who will discuss the Oceans Program on conservation and human health issues related to the U.S. seafood market as well as projects to improve aquaculture and develop meaningful organic standards for fish; Organic, Inc: Natural Foods and How They Grew author Samuel Fromartz; and Makalé Faber of Slow Food USA, the American branch of a global movement with over 80,000 members who recognize that the enjoyment of wholesome food is essential to the pursuit of happiness. Moderated by award-winning journalist Bryan Keefer. FREE.
