BROWN BAG LUNCH AT COMMON GOOD WITH SUSTAINABLE FARMER ERIC HERM
March 19, 2011, 12 noon
Common Good City Farm, on V St NW between 2nd & 4th Streets
Fourth-generation Texas farmer Eric Herm deals with the harsh economic realities and complicated legislation facing farmers, as well as the undeniable health impact of GMO crops and excessive chemicals on all living creatures in his new book, Son of a Farmer, Child of the Earth: A Path to Agriculture’s Higher Consciousness. Eric will speak about the critical need for more American farmers, wider use of sustainable agriculture techniques, and more resilient local communities.
Copies of the book will be available on the farm and at a book signing at Sisterspace and Books, 3717 Georgia Avenue NW, beside the Georgia Avenue/Petworth Metro east entrance from 6pm.
