Sugar Bee Mushrooms and Bryan & Ryan’s Gourmet Greens
Learn how these urban farms got their start and how they’re cultivating both local food and community in Milwaukee’s Green Corridor.
Sarah Wisniewski and Sebastian Zoric Martinez are the owners of the Sugar Bee Mushroom Farm and cultivate a variety of nutrient rich gourmet Mushrooms. Their farm is located in the Energy Exchange -- a water neutral green facility that also houses Bryan and Ryan's Gourmet Greens, The Gateway to Milwaukee, The Green Corridor Worm Castings, and many other budding projects.

Food Book Club with Friends of Real Food and Slow Food WISE
The 2nd book we discuss in this bi-monthly group is Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America by Wenonah Hauter
Wenonah Hauter shares statistics and stories as she argues that the United States is in a food crisis, caused by government deregulation and by consolidation and control of the food supply by a small number of powerful corporations.
She says: "If we don't confront and change the consolidation and corporate control of our food system, only a very small percentage of people will benefit from the good food movement. We can't shop our way out of this mess."
To learn more about the book, visit www.foodopoly.org
The book is available in paperback (ask at Boswells for the Book Club discount) and at the Milw. Public Library.
