Grow Local

Meet the farmers from this new business in town.

Grow Local’s mission since its conception in 2011 has been to make good food more available to the communities it serves. The three partners started with a small sustainable farm in the Fox Valley area and this year they’ve expanded to Milwaukee. They offer varieties of greens, herbs, mushrooms, microgreens, edible blossoms, foraged goods, and preserved goods. Besides delivering to restaurants and other businesses, anyone can buy their products through their Grow Local Subscription. It’s their different take on the CSA model offering choices in what you receive and length of subscription as well as the option of year round deliveries

All About Fish
Learning from Paul Greenberg

Our discussion will be based on the writings of Paul Greenberg who wrote Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food.

We’ll watch a short video in which he talks about “The Four Fish We’re Overeating -- and what to eat instead”.

To prepare for our discussion, you could read his book -- or these two shorter pieces:
