Food & Water: An Evening Talk and Dinner About Sustainability
Thursday, April 14, 7 - 10 pm
Open to the public
Fresh Company, the Garrison Institute and the Beacon Institute for Rivers & Estuaries invite you to join us on April 14 for a talk and a meal...
Join us for a talk and conversation with John Cronin of the Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries to reflect upon the most fundamental of our human needs. It is said that our environmental future depends upon our ability to live sustainably. Yet as a community we tend to take sustenance for granted. Food and water flow in abundance in some parts of the world, while they trickle in others. Some analysts say we are reaching the limits of our ability to enjoy adequate supplies of these most essential requirements for life.
Where to start? Through the sharing of food, water (and wine), join your friends and neighbors in a celebration of the bounty with which we are blessed, and take the opportunity to reflect positively on our individual and shared roles in helping our region and our planet prosper sustainably. In this most profound season of the year, the season of community and rebirth, the time of Passover, Earth Day and Easter, there is no better time to renew our faith in and duties toward humankind and our home planet.
