Street Smarts for Eaters: The Consumer’s Guide to Sustainable Food Production
TACNY Sweet Science Series at the MOST presents an evening with Liz Pickard, an organic dairy farmer and rural community organizer in Cortland County. A founder of CNY Young Farmers Coalition, Liz is a student of regenerative agriculture working to produce nutrient-dense foods free of toxic chemicals to local consumers.
What do the labels “grass-fed” and “organic” really mean? How does climate change affect farms, and vice versa? What should consumers know about the foods they buy and the farms that produce them? Farmer and food advocate Liz Pickard will join the MOST on Thursday, September 13th, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM to discuss sustainability and climate change as they relate to agricultural practices, animal agriculture, and food production. The evening will also include an interactive tutorial designed to help audience members distinguish between the various marketing claims made on food product labels.
The event is FREE, but please RSVP with ticket link provided.
