“Conscientious Carnivore” Discussion

The next quarterly library panel discussion is coming up, and the Santa Monica Farmers’ Markets are bringing together local farmers and chefs to discuss the concept of being a “conscientious carnivore.”

Many farmers are raising animals for meat and dairy in a humane way and offering concerned consumers a choice about what they eat. If you’re opposed to commercial animal production, take this opportunity to meet three farmers who raise lamb, goat, rabbit, chickens, and cows, and chefs who prefer to source their animals from these small producers:

When: Thursday, August 12, 2010 from 7:00pm until 9:00pm
Where: Santa Monica Public Library, Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Boulevard, Santa Monica (MLK, Jr. Auditorium)
Cost: Free and open to the public, but seating is limited and will be on a first-arrival basis, and seating tickets will become available at 6:30pm. The Santa Monica Public Library is wheelchair accessible. For special disabled services call Library Administration at 310.458.8606.

Evan Kleiman will moderate the discussion among Marcie Jimenez of Jimenez Family Farm, Diane Tropper of Lily’s Eggs, Mark McAffee of Organic Pastures Dairy, and Evan Funke of Rustic Canyon. Attendees can enjoy market treats prepared by Evan Funke after the discussion.
