This week is a dream week at Bellarmine for folks interested in sustainable agriculture practices and eating locally. I’ve already told you about the TEDx event coming up on Saturday but now let me share news of a lecture happening on Wednesday night specifically about the meat industry and the benefits of eating locally grown meat.
Daniel Imhoff is director of Watershed Media, which seeks to influence the transition to a sustainable society. He is also president of the Wild Farm Alliance, a national organization promoting agriculture systems that support and accommodate wild nature. He has written articles, essays and books, including “Farming with the Wild: Enhancing Biodiversity on Farms and Ranches.”
Imhoff’s lecture — titled “Animal Factory: the truth about the meat you eat and how you can change the system” — takes place in Hilary’s, on the first floor of Horrigan Hall.
After Imhoff’s lecture, Louisville food writer Sarah Fritschner will lead a panel discussion about options for buying locally-grown meat. The panel features a farmer and a processor-distributor. Fritschner is a former Courier-Journal food editor who has written books about cooking.
