EXETER — The Food and Health Forum presents farmer Pete Johnson from Craftsbury Village, VT, on Mon., March 19, 6:30 - 9:00 p.m., at the Blue Moon Evolution, Exeter. The Food for Thought dinner seminar includes a three-course locally sourced dinner and a glass of wine. As part of the seminar, participants will also engage in conversation with other community members on why and how organic and local food supports a healthier society and what we, as consumers, can do to play our part.
Pete's CSA suffered an extreme loss last winter from a barn fire, and despite the tragedy, were able to rebuild and also create a model for sharing the support they received, paying it forward to other farms. I'm eager to hear this most recent chapter in the amazing story of Pete Johnson," said Sara Zoe Patterson who heads up Seacoast Eat Local. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Seacoast Eat local.
Pete Johnson has created a model for 4-season farming through Pete's Greens, a certified organic, four-season community supported agriculture (CSA) farm located on the edge of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom in Craftsbury, VT. His philosophy is that as more Vermonters eat locally, they will become healthier as communities and as individuals.
