Sarah Rabkin, Irene Reti & Ellen Farmer: Cultivating a Movement
Come celebrate the local organic/sustainable foods movement and the UCSC Library’s publication of Cultivating a Movement: An Oral History of Organic Farming and Sustainable Agriculture on California’s Central Coast. Santa Cruz County is a seedbed of pioneering organizations and farms that have transformed the food system locally and beyond over the past four decades. The sampling of narratives in this collection documents a multifaceted and interdependent community of change-makers who speak for themselves, offering a window into the dynamic history of the movement. The editors will read colorful, inspirational stories from this anthology based on extensive oral history interviews released in 2010. This event will be lively and informative and we look forward to seeing you there for the presentations, signing, and Q&A.
