Gardening Book Club Meeting; The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food

Join the Gardening Book Club for The Third Plate: Field Notes on the Future of Food in the YEllow Springs Library on February 28th

“Barber explores the evolution of American food from the 'first plate,' or industrially-produced, meat-heavy dishes, to the 'second plate' of grass-fed meat and organic greens, and says that both approaches are ultimately neither sustainable nor healthy. Instead, Barber proposes Americans should move to the 'third plate,' a cuisine rooted in seasonal productivity, natural livestock rhythms, whole-grains, and small portions of free-range meat.”
