The Berry Center and Cultural Change
Thursday, Oct. 25th 2:30pm with local harvest reception to follow Shumaker Research Building Room 139
In 2011 our guest speaker, Mary Berry, established The Berry Center in New Castle, KY to focus on issues confronting small farm families in Kentucky and around the country. One of the goals of The Berry Center is to bring focus, knowledge and cohesiveness to the work of changing our ruinous industrial agriculture system into a culture that uses nature as the standard that accepts no permanent damage to the ecosphere, and takes into consideration human health in local communities.
This event is in celebration of Food Day, a national campaign for healthy, sustainable, affordable, and fairly produced food, which is a project of the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
Sponsored by the Department of Anthropology, the College of Arts & Sciences Committee on Food Justice, the Office of the Vice President for Business Affairs-Local Food Committee, and the Sustainability Council
