Harvesting Justice 2008

When: Sat., Sept. 13, 10:30-11:45 a.m. 2008

Now that celebrity authors Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser have enlightened us as to the drawbacks of fast food and commercial agriculture, we have all the more reason to support local community gardens and slow food enterprises. And what better organization to promote than the People's Grocery, a West Oakland-based nonprofit that promotes affordable healthy eating and incorporates sustainable practices into the local food economy. People's Grocery will hold a special fund-raising brunch at the ScottishRiteCenter (1547 Lakeside Dr., Oakland) on Saturday, Sept. 13. Featured guests include dancers from Destiny Arts, the Loose Change Collective jazz band, and the ever-inspiring Pollan. 10:30-11:45 p.m., free.
