Locavore Book Club
This book club delves into the whys and hows of local sustainable food on the 2nd or 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7pm in the library. Each month the club chooses a non-fiction locavore book to read and discuss.
Anyone can join and you are welcome to enjoy the books and Facebook group even if you are unable to attend the meetings at the library!
In the 2018-19 series we have changed our format, instead of meeting and discussing the books on the monthly topic we are inviting speakers in and hosting monthly workshops open to the public. (for example, in September we hosted a workshop on fermentation, in October a speaker came in to speak on growing small fruits and berries) See the events calendar to confirm dates, times and topics.
Previous years’ topics were: For the 2014-15 session we read many books on the topic of locavorism; for 2015-16 we focused more on specific hands-on topics for food preservation and we partnered with the Creston Valley Food Action Coalition for their speaker series on coordinated topics. The 2016-17 series focused on methods of increasing food production at home. In the 2017-18 series our theme was INSPIRATION as we looked at various topics pertaining to eating locally. We have also added a Facebook group to share online resources and for discussion.
