The Urban Sustainability Forum is hosting a lecture tonight (6:00 pm reception, 6:30 pm program) entitled, “Is Sustainable Agriculture Bad for the Planet?” at the Academy of Natural Sciences at Drexel University in Philadelphia.
Does eating local really make you a better citizen? Does eating grass-fed livestock raise your emissions? Is it worth it to pay extra for organic products? Join contrarian sustainable food writer James E. McWilliams, author of Just Food: Where Locavores Get It Wrong and How We Can Truly Eat Responsibly, and a panel of sustainable food experts as they discuss how we should eat to help the planet.
The discussion will be moderated by Alison Hastings, manager of strategic partnerships at the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission. Panelists include Blake Hurst, author of The Omnivore’s Delusion and Mark “Coach” Smallwood, executive director at the Rodale Institute.
The event is sponsored by BNY Mellon Wealth Management and Main Line Health; Academy Members may attend for free; nonmembers are $5. To register, click here.
