OUR HEROES- LOCAL FARMERS!

by Cathy Moranofarmer1_1024x1024.jpg

Where does our human energy come from?:

From real food -- that is, whole, unprocessed food, with nutritional value.

Where does our health come from?:

From real food. And where does our real food come from? From the soil that is cultivated with time.

Who prepares the soil? Who plants the seeds? Who raises and nurtures the plants from seedlings to maturity?  Who harvests the plants at the right time? Who repeats the birth, growth, harvest cycle season after season, year after year, generation after generation?

Your Local Farmer!

And to what end do our local farmers do this? To serve their purpose/mission in life -- to provide fresh, tasty, healthful, safe food for their communities; to ‘feed’ their neighbors.

UPCOMING EVENTS!

Food For Thought Book Club
-Bring a Young Reader Community Event!
by Jessica Kirwan-Shawseedfolks.jpg

How better to fill the "endless" summer nights than to bring a young friend or family member to our next Food for Thought Book Group!? 

July's book selection, Seedfolks, is geared toward younger readers (approximately 5th grade and up), but is rich with meaning and encouragement for any age.  The story of a young girl who dares to plant seeds within a blighted neighborhood proves that a little gardening and a little hope can bring people together!  

Join on Tuesday July 8th!

We are reading this book in cooperation with the New Hope-Solebury School District and Doylestown communities.  This is in an effort to build a stronger, informed community of integrity from the ground up!

The Doylestown Food Co-Op and the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance are proud to present the latest installment in this year’s Farm Fresh Film Series: "American Meat". Join us Thursday, July 17th, at Doylestown’s County Theater to see this enlightening documentary: a pro-farmer look at chicken, hog and cattle production in America. The film begs the question: "Can a new generation of grass-based meat farmers revolutionize the industry and change America?"

Doors open at 7pm, the film begins at 7:30pm and will be followed by a live panel discussion.  For more information about the movie and the event click here.

Food for Thought Book Club
by Joe Wallace

Happy Birthday America!

Founders.jpg

Benjamin Franklin listed the three ways by which a nation could acquire wealth...
"The first is by WAR… This is ROBBERY.  
The second by COMMERCE which is generally CHEATING.  
The third by AGRICULTURE the only HONEST WAY."  

[ From "Positions to be examined concerning National Wealth", 1769. ]  Taken from the DFC June "Food for Thought" Book Club book -- "Founding Gardeners" by Andrea Wulf.

On Tuesday June 10th "Founding Gardeners" was the topic of discussion at the Doylestown Bookshop for the Food for Thought Book Club.  Andrea Wulf's stunning book examined the Founding Fathers' obsession with agriculture, and how agriculture represented and reflected the trials of the fledgling nation.
