Hello Friends,

It is with great delight that I would like to an extend an invitation for you to join me for a special evening in downtown Kitchener on Monday, December 4th, 7-9pm.

The evening is called Getting Our Hands Dirty: The Art of Growing Local Food and is a panel discussion with local farmers on the environmental and economic joys, challenges, and complexities of growing food and the contribution of farmers to food security and our local economy.

This isn’t an ordinary panel discussion. As part of our Fermented Thought series the ticket to this event will get you a meal, a glass of wine or beer, access to an important conversation in a beautiful space with lots of interesting people.

This year I have the privilege to help organize and host a variety of educational events in our community on the thought of Wendell Berry sponsored through the Working Centre.

These events, which we are calling Finding Our Place, include a film series co-sponsored with the Princess Cinemas, a book club with almost forty people participating and a special new series of Fermented Thoughts at Fresh Ground Cafe.

The event is the first of our series. Tickets are $25 per person.

I hope you can make it. If you know anyone else who is interested please send along the invitation to them.

With gratitude,
