When: Thursday, November 5, 2009 beginning at 7:00pm
Where: Santa Monica Public Library, Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Boulevard, Santa Monica (MLK, Jr. Auditorium)
Cost: Free and open to the public

As Slow Food Los Angeles members and friends know, the Santa Monica Farmers’ Markets make an abundance of farm-fresh goods available to our community. At this Thursday’s event, proponents of the nose-to-tail movement will talk about how they and their colleagues are working together to revitalize traditional farming and cooking practices by growing–and eating–everything on the farm.

Participants will include Greg Nauta of Rocky Canyon Farms, Phil McGrath of McGrath Family Farm, and Ben Ford, founder and chef of Ford’s Filling Station in Culver City, and their discussion will be moderated by Evan Kleiman. Refreshments and treats provided by Ben Ford will be available to attendees after the panel discussion.

MLK Auditorium seating is limited and available on a first arrival basis. Overflow seating will be available in the 2nd floor multipurpose room. Doors open at 6:45pm, lecture begins promptly at 7:00pm. The Santa Monica Public Library is wheelchair accessible. For special disabled services call Library Administration at 310.458.8606.
