Sustainable Farming in the 21st Century, a perspective
Come learn about a local, eco-friendly farm from the comfort of our store, October 17 at 7:30 pm!
Join us as Empower Farms' Director Nicolas Miller takes us on a guided tour through his farm, using maps and photos, to showcase organic growing methods used here in South Florida. The practices used will be compared to conventional farming around the world for reference.
The production, transportation, distribution and sale of food takes place at such a large scale that it is often difficult to see the big picture and get an understanding of the effects that our choices as consumers have.
In addition to focusing on the practices used at Empower Farms - this talk aims to consider farming in general and to answer the who, what, when, where, how, and why of our food system and begs the question: what next?
