Local dinner

Thursday, May 22
Ann Arbor Downtown Library
343 S. Fifth Ave. Ann Arbor, MI

This panel discussion is put on by Slow Food Huron Valley. Their last event at the Library had a standing-room only crowd.

This panel features exemplary local farmers – Deb Lentz and Richard Andres from TantrĂ© Farm and Kris Hirth from Old Pine Farm – who will talk about how they run their CSA farms, what they’ve learned about growing food, and what they see for the future of food. The panel discussion will also highlight the creative ways that people in our community are buying, cooking and enjoying food that is produced close to home. Mary Wessell Walker will talk about her business, the Community Farm Kitchen, and Victoria Bennett will talk about how she and her husband changed their approach to food when they discovered their young son was allergic to both dairy and soy.
