GrowFood Tour and Discussion 

When: Thu., Oct. 17, 6 p.m. 2013
Price: Free
Do you ever wonder where the tomatoes in a La Ha burrito or the lime in your Corona come from? The League of Women Voters will explore the idea of food production with a tour of GrowFood Carolina’s warehouse and a discussion of Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma. The 2006 New York Times Book of the Year examines the food chains of America and effectively exposed readers to the vast industrial food complex. “We believe that the thought of ‘What’s for dinner?’ is an important and increasingly complicated question,” says League member Shayna Howell. “This book is fact-based and appealing to a wide audience, so as we decide to update our agricultural policy in light of pesticide, herbicide, and water contamination, it’s a valuable resource.” The LWV wanted to have the event at GrowFood since it’s one of the only agricultural hubs in the state. “It’s a viable option for local farmers to blossom and sell their produce and we want to support that,” says Howell. An optional dinner will be provided by GrowFood buyer Verde. And if you haven’t had the chance to read the book, fret not. The discussion will start with a synopsis led by Coastal Conservation League director Lisa Turansky.
