Monday January 11
the FIRST-EVER SOMERVILLE FARM SHARE FAIR,
followed by a special film screening of “The Power of Community”
at the Somerville Public Library (79 Highland Ave)
:: SOMERVILLE FARM SHARE FAIR :: 6PM – Free Admission
presented by Somerville Climate Action + Boston Localvores + Groundwork Somerville
Each year, local farms throughout the Greater Boston region offer weekly subscriptions to their delicious, fresh, and often-organic produce — delivered right close to home. But getting information on these shares (called CSAs, or community-supported agriculture) can be near-impossible. This year, we’re bringing all of the farms together in one place, so you can get the information you need to get signed up. Bring in your checkbook to reserve a share!
:: THE POWER OF COMMUNITY :: 7PM – Free Admission
presented by State Rep. Denise Provost + Transition Somerville
After the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, Cuba faced catastrophic cuts in its oil and food supplies. In the face of the crisis, creative communities came together to transition to a more sustainable path, through organic farming and urban gardening. Their inspiring story offers hope for us all as we enter an era of rising fuel costs and impending global warming threats. Please join us after the film for a brief discussion.
