Let’s Go Organic: Empowering Local Food Systems
The Temple of Understanding’s (TOU) Eco Justice for All Series presents “Let’s Go Organic: Empowering Local Food Systems,” with Dave Chapman of the Real Organic Project, Spencer Fenniman, Farming Director at Hawthorne Valley Farm, and Ango Sara Tashker of the San Francisco Zen Center, on Friday, April 22 from 10-11 a.m. EST. Register here to attend this online discussion.
Join Dave Chapman and the Real Organic project as we explore two spiritual traditions of farming, one from the Biodynamic system and the other from the Buddhist Zen tradition. This Dialogue centers on how local communities can encourage organic farms by participating in CSAs, purchasing goods at farmers’ markets, family-owned food markets, and other ventures.
