Table Talk: Botanical Bookworms

This COVID-friendly, book club-style series meets on Zoom to discuss books related to food security, food systems and/or environmental sustainability. About a month before each meeting the public is invited to vote on 1 of 3 titles selected in partnership with Brock Public Library. The winning title is read and discussed at the upcoming meeting. As decided by the community, we meet on a quarterly basis. Come join the conversation! Follow our newsletter or social media to keep informed of the next date.
