What is Real Food?
Share a delicious potluck dinner and stories about what real food means to you.
Local? Healthy? Family traditions? Bring a story about a memorable meal you’ve shared with family and friends. Or bring a favorite recipe – along with why you like to make it.  Or come to listen. Storytelling is a powerful way to build community along with a new culture and food system.

White Wash by Carey Gillam
The Story of a weed killer, cancer & the corruption of science

Recently Monsanto and the dangers of its weed killer, Roundup, have been in the news. In August, an historic lawsuit verdict ordered Monsanto to pay millions in damages to a man who developed cancer after regularly using Roundup. Carey Gilliam’s book documents the dangers of Roundup and how the company worked to suppress scientific evidence and influence government regulators. More recently she’s talked about how the company has worked to discredit her research and stories.
