Whoa, I'm way late on this one, just in from my colleague Sharon Chan. Sounds like something the thinking fooderazzi shouldn't miss. Too bad I'm sitting in Edmonds, and leaving in a few hours for Santa Rosa. . .
The Seattle City Council presents noted author and activist Francis Moore Lappe talking about Council President Richard Conlin's Local Food Action Initiative. This new legislation would create a Seattle Food Action Plan, improve direct connections between farmers in the region and urban consumers including major institutions like hospitals, schools, and jails; support sustainable agriculture; aid local farmer's markets and market gardens; and more.
AS I WRITE:
Brownbag with City Council and Lappe, Friday, April 11, noon, Seattle City Hall, 600 Fourth Avenue, Second Floor, City Council Chambers, Free, Open to the Public.
LATER THIS EVENING:
A Conversation with Frances Moore Lappé
April 11, 5:00pm-7:00pm, Seattle City Hall, Bertha Knight Landes Room, 600 4th Ave, Seattle.
