Sunday March 7, 2 pm Widening the Circle, - virtual zoom call.   Restoring Dignity to Farming and Food

This week's zoom call will feature two passionate and knowledgable guests on farming and food.

As more of us reawaken to the importance of eating good nutritious food, it is necessary that we understand our current food systems, the politics that run those systems, and how we can best help restore and return dignity and well being to all who are engaged in the basic art of feeding us.
Joel Greeno is the current president of Family Farm Defenders. He is a farmer in Southwestern Wisconsin and through association he is well versed in farming practices throughout the world.
Melody Morrell has worked at The Cornucopia Institute for the past eight years. Her deep love of food, and the soil it comes from, has made her a fierce protector of organic integrity.
