Chef Madeleine Babour is preparing a lunch made from locally grown and foraged food. Barbara Kingsolver wrote “A hundred different paths may lighten the load of the world's suffering” in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Let us enlighten you on just how helpful the local food movement is for our world and perhaps meet some of the local farmers who grew our lunch. What's lunch without a locally brewed beverage? Our favorite brewery is coming to pour everyone a glass of locally brewed beer.
