Join local farmer Mike Yoken of Nourishing Farms for a talk and discussion, on the topics of food, food-traditions, nutrition, and health, and how they relate to local food-production; land-use and value; our ‘foodshed’ and local ‘food-security’. What do we eat, and how do we decide? How do we come by our food? Should we produce and eat more locally and if so how? How can all populations be included and benefit? Share what resources are available locally, what is already active and happening, and where the potential lies. Mike is starting a local Westchester farm producing veggies, herbs, and flowers to supply restaurants, and retail sales. He is trained in and practices ‘beyond-organic’ growing practices for nutrient-dense crops and healthy soil. He holds a master’s degree in ecological design and also runs a small local landscape design+install+maintenance company specializing in edible and native plants. In 2010 he was part of a team that facilitated a planning process for food security and related issues for the town of Northampton, MA.
