Slaven Lecture Series at Blue Hill Library
July 13 @ 6:00 pm
The Blue Hill Public Library and Blue Hill Books will sponsor an author talk with Anne Biklé, for her book “What Your Food Ate” on Wednesday, July 13, at 6 p.m. In “What Your Food Ate,” authors Anne Biklé and David R. Montgomery take us far beyond the well-worn adage to deliver a new truth: the roots of good health start on farms. The book marshals evidence from recent and forgotten science to illustrate how the health of the soil ripples through to that of crops, livestock and, ultimately, us.
The long-running partnerships through which crops and soil life nourish one another suffuse plant and animal foods in the human diet with an array of compounds and nutrients our bodies need to protect us from pathogens and chronic ailments. Unfortunately, conventional agricultural practices unravel these vital partnerships and thereby undercut our well-being. Can farmers and ranchers produce enough nutrient-dense food to feed us all? Can we have quality and quantity?
The Robert K. and Linda B. Slaven Lecture Series seeks to bring distinguished speakers with expertise in a wide array of subjects to Blue Hill, to share their knowledge on topics of importance to the community and the world.
