Food For All- A Community Conversation

Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Antioch in Keene, Community Room.
Price: Free
Ages: older crowd

The forum, featuring leaders in such fields as human services, community gardening, food security and accessibility, will focus on building a sustainable local food economy. By bringing community members to the table, organizers hope "Food for All: A Community Conversation" will provide a platform to engage and take action to improve access to wholesome, affordable, sustainable food.

Farmers, gardeners, consumers, business and community leaders and concerned citizens are encouraged to attend, bring questions and engage in the conversation.

Antioch University New England is committed to "ecological stewardship and social justice, cultivating local as well as global perspectives to educate students with diverse backgrounds and opinions to become leaders of change." Keene Community Garden Connections is building Keene's local capacity to grow food and address issues of food insecurity related to climate change, personal and communal health, and resiliency. Monadnock Community Market Co-op is a cooperatively owned food store, opening in downtown Keene in 2012, that will provide a diverse selection of local, organic, and natural foods.

The Clan of Engineers

Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Dummerston Community Center, West St., West Dummerston, VT (about 24 miles from Keene)

Price: Free
Ages: Older crowd

Join BEEC naturalist Patti Smith on a vicarious trip to the valley inhabited by Willow, Bunchberry, Snowberry, Ducky, Dewberry, and Sundew, the beaver family that she has been studying for the past four years. Take a photographic journey through the seasons and lives of these exceptional engineering mammals,
Patti will then pass the reins to human engineer, Skip Lisle, who will talk about the beavers’ ecological role as creators of wetlands and as an important keystone species throughout their range. The same activities that make beavers so important to other wildlife often fail to endear them to people. Skip will also talk about the technologies he pioneered to reduce human/beaver conflicts. Find out how they can be used to restore beavers to places where they have been unwelcome, and to keep beavers in places where their welcome is wearing thin.
