This coming Monday, January 10, there will be two events at the Princeton Public Library under the title: "Farming In and Around Princeton: Past, Present, and Future"
I've been invited to be on the panel that's part of a presentation at 7:30pm. Some of my comments will have to do with an out-of-culture experience I had several years ago returning to Princeton from Spain.
MORE INFO: Judith Robinson, manager of the Princeton Farmers Market, has organized with the assistance of the Historical Society of an exhibit of photos and pages of farm ledgers from the 1800's which will be on display in the community room of the Princeton Public Library. Then at she will be showing a short documentary on two local farmers which will be followed by a panel discussion including Elric Endersby, Stephen Hiltner, Jess Niederer, Jennifer Jang and moderated by Ms. Robinson.
"I want to make people aware of and get them interested in learning about both the history of farming in the area and in what is happening now---and what they could be active in contributing to by supporting our local farmers and even plowing up their grass yards! To see this area not only as suburbia but in its potential for creative husbandry", she says.
