Farming For a New Generation
Another offering in the Santa Monica Farmers' Market quarterly panel series is on the horizon, with another great roster of local speakers:
When: Thursday, August 27, 2009 from 7:00pm until 9:00pm
Where: Santa Monica Public Library, Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Boulevard, Santa Monica (MLK, Jr. Auditorium)

As Slow Food Los Angeles members and friends know, the Santa Monica Farmers' Markets are famous for farmers who grow delicious produce, as well as for producing second- and even third-generation farmers to carry on the family farming tradition. Meet some of the farmers and their children who will discuss how the family tradition will be carried on in the future and their outlook on farming for tomorrow.
The panel will feature:
Farmers: Molly and Kris Gean of Harry's Berries; Gloria and Jason Tamai of Tamai Farms; and Chris and Clara Cadwell of Tutti Frutti Farms
Chef: Sassan Rostamian, Sauce on Hampton (stay after for treats from Sassan!)
Moderator: Russ Parsons, author and Los Angeles Times Food Editor
MLK Auditorium seating is limited and available on a first arrival basis. Overflow seating will be available in the 2nd floor multipurpose room. Doors open at 6:45pm, lecture begins promptly at 7:00pm. The Santa Monica Public Library is wheelchair accessible. For special disabled services call Library Administration at 310.458.8606.
