Farm City Reading Circle | February 22, March 29,
April 26April 21!!!, May 31 and June 28, 2011
Farm City Reading Circle aims to discuss books related to the sustainable food movement with a focus on urban agriculture. To keep the dialogue intimate, the central group helps launch smaller groups of 20 or so people to accommodate new members. The idea of the Book Club is to use shared, simultaneous reading as a way to build community in the good food movement. The Book Club is a project of FarmCity.US, Daniel Bowman Simon and Brooklyn Food Coalition meeting on the last Tuesdays of every month.
