PCC Farmland Trust is thrilled to be a Community Partner with Seattle Arts & Lectures on September 19th, for the Mark Bittman event at Benaroya Hall.
Mark Bittman’s talk is entitled “The Future of Food,” about the intersection of food, politics, the environment, and personal health. He’ll discuss “non-foods, like soda, and their impact, as well as how policy pushes foods, like wheat, meat, and dairy, that may be in no one’s best interests.” He’ll also discuss “the sticks and carrots that we need to move out of this mess.”
Tickets are on sale through the Seattle Arts & Lectures box office.
