HLT Program Focuses on Local Food


Hunterdon Land Trust’s upcoming Conservation Conversation program offers both food for thought and thoughts on food.

“Thoughts on Food – Farmers, Consumers and our Local Food System” explores the issues related to healthy local food including how its price limits its access for many people.

This Conservation Conversation explores the potential impacts of changes on local farmers, small businesses and existing food systems, and how to respond to them. Guests include Ralph Celebre, owner of Basil Bandwagon Natural Market; Alex Sawatzky, formerly of Sandbrook Meadow Farm; Ashley Reece, executive director at Valley Crest Farm; Robert Reid, Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers’ Market manager; and a NOFA NJ board member.

The program will be held in the wagon house of the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St., Flemington on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 5:30 p.m.

This event is free, but please register in advance by emailing judy@hunterdonlandtrust.org or calling 908-237-4582. Light refreshments will be served.

Conservation Conversations are peer-to-peer learning opportunities — not lectures. Everyone is encouraged to participate in an active discussion on a variety of thought-provoking topics while meeting others who share your interests.

Conservation Conversations are supported by a grant from The Tyler Foundation.
