In addition, get exited for guest speaker Dr. Joan Gussow, who has been called the “matriarch of the eat-locally-think-globally food movement,” by The New York Times. Guests will enjoy local beer and wine, and be invited to meet the farmers behind the Grange’s urban farming initiative and take tours of the farm. Tickets are $150 each, and can be purchased here.
