LUSH Valley presents Brian Brett, award-winning author of Trauma Farm, for an evening of storytelling and dinner at the annual general meeting of LUSH Valley (Let Us Share the Harvest) a Food Action Society.
Brett offers a unique perspective weaving science and folk tales to conjure our cultural connections with locally grown food. From the awe of simple perfection found on our community farms to the horrors of slaughterhouses, a sharp and humorous view is shared about rural life.
Dinner begins April 22 at 6 p.m. Chefs Vivian, Cynthia, and helpers will prepare an array of delicious local food dishes. Storytelling begins at 6:45. The AGM will begin at 7:30.
LUSH Valley is looking for new board of directors for 2013/14. Are you a farmer, businessperson, chef, researcher or food networker? Come and chat with us about becoming a member. Space is limited, so please RSVP.
