The Town that Food Saved
Join Slow Food Seattle for our first foray towards an ongoing book club. We'll be doing a combination of partnerships with Kim Ricketts Book Events and connecting with the incredible resources of our local authors. If you'd like to be involved, drop us a line or come to the event this coming Tuesday.

This is the first event in a series on food, sustainability and community called "Edible Conversations" and will take place on June 8th at 7pm at Tom Douglas' Palace Ballroom. Jill Lightner, the editor of Edible Seattle will interview Ben Hewitt about his life as a farmer, and the way a group of farmers and entrepreneurs banded together to create a comprehensive food system and revive the dying economy of Hardwick, Vermont.

Joining Jill and Ben will be local chefs, Sequim farmer Kia Kozun of Nash's Organic Produce, Chris Curtis, the Director of Seattle's Neighborhood Farmer Market Alliance and Mary Embleton, Director of the Cascade Harvest Coalition.
