What Does Food Sustainability Mean?

Come see the images of the Lexicon of Sustainability – 24 magnificent photos – each worth more than a thousand words. They illustrate terms we should understand to ensure we have healthy, tasty, local food in our homes, at our farms and in our communities. Terms like: Grass Fed, Pasture-Raised v. Cage-Free, Sustainability, Biodiversity v. Monoculture, The Soil-Food Web, and more.

Then stay for the Local Flavor Community Potluck a monthly, zero-waste gathering focused on celebrating local food, engaging discussions and building new friendships in the community. Bring a potluck dish, using a many locally-sourced ingredients as possible, and a “mess kit” (non-disposable plate, cup, utensils and napkin).

The event will be held on Sunday, January 20th at 4 PM with the potluck beginning at 5 PM. The event is co-sponsored by Transition Newburyport and Community Resilience Circles and hosted by the Central Congregational Church at 14 Titcomb Street in Newburyport. For additional information visit www.transitionnewburport.org or call[masked]-1308.

The event is free and open to the public and all ages are welcome.

    Very interested in what food sustainability is all about. As I see it, we'll have to do some serious changes to how we secure sufficient nourishment in future years. Edible landscaping, gardening, and backyard livestock isn't the whole answer (but, it's a great starting point). Farmers will still do the heavy lifting when it comes to feeding us. How will they run their trucks, tractors, and other machinery when gas prices are through the roof? How well will our farmers make the change from petroleum-based fertilizers to organic ones? Will small family farms make a comeback (based on plain pragmatism, not necessarily from nostalgia)?? Zillions of questions to address! See ya on the 20th.
