In Discussion with Mary Berry 

When: Sun., May 3, 1-3 p.m. 2015
Price: $10
Oliveto.com/Commons
What is it like to be a small-scale farmer in this country, and what steps need to be taken to make sure that the US food economy protects the interests of such farmers in the face of drought, Big Ag, and myriad other challenges? Whether you’re a farmer yourself, or simply a conscientious food shopper who hopes the traditions of small farmers can be preserved, you’ll want to hear what Mary Berry — a small-scale Kentucky farmer and daughter of the legendary small-farm and sustainable-food advocate Wendell Berry — has to say on these and related topics. Berry will be at Oliveto (5655 College Ave., Oakland) on Sunday, and the event is the latest offering of Oliveto Commons, the restaurant’s series of workshops and lectures centered on food and agriculture. Those interested in attending should register and pay the $10 admission fee via the Oliveto Commons website.
