Join Gigi Berardi, celebrating Huxley's 50th anniversary (she's celebrating her silver one with the College) and all of us as we mark/toast/observe Earth Day's 50th—by celebrating food! Many of us in Whatcom county think that every day should be Earth Day, and Food Day. Why and How? Join journalist and Huxley prof Gigi Berardi as she makes weighty nutritional, farming, and environmental problems accessible, understandable, and hopeful. Gigi strongly feels that understanding the farming origins of our food is part of eating well, and she'll be joined by a farming partner or two. But, she acknowledges, producers are only one part of the picture; communities of conscientious eaters, whether in campus dining halls or city “food deserts,” as well as the broader food system in which we live, play a vital part in creating our food system. How to do that? Join us for Earth Day Soiree to find out. There will be live music, local farmers, and delicious treats from recipes in FoodWISE, executed by Evolve's very own Chef Christy.

“If you can’t figure out what to eat after reading FoodWISE, you might as well just stop eating.”—Steve Ettlinger, author of Twinkie, Deconstructed

Gigi Berardi is a professor at Western Washington University and teaches food and geography classes domestically and internationally. A free-lance writer, she maintains the popular food blog “FoodWISE” and has written numerous articles for general and scientific audiences alike. Her work has appeared in outlets including the LA Times and BioScience among others. She holds a PhD from Cornell University in Natural Resources Policy and Planning.

Tickets to this event are $15, include a 'plus one' option, and are available at Village Books and on Eventbrite (taxes and fees apply).
