How will we feed ourselves when global food systems falter? This pressing question about the future of our food security is becoming an urgent concern as rich agricultural land is being swallowed up by surrounding urban landscapes. In his new book, The Urban Food Revolution: Changing the Way We Feed Cities, local author and former civic polititian Peter Ladner, addresses this question and many more by providing a recipe for community food security based on practical innovations across North America. On Thursday, October 27 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. join Peter for a booksigning, chat and refreshments to celebrate the launch of The Urban Food Revolution. Signed copies of The Urban Food Revolution will be available for purchase. This event is free, please RSVP.
