INDUSTRIAL VERSUS SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
Brenda Hull, 4 Sessions, Monday and Wednesday, January 14, 16, 21, 23, 1:10 pm – 3:10 pm
We are what we eat and what we eat eats. These are words of wisdom as we learn more and more about the "other" ingredients in our food. We'll look at when, how and why humans started raising their own foods and domesticating animals. Agriculture the way our great grandparents grew, then the industrial revolution and where that has taken us agriculturally and lastly, the regenerative agriculture movement. Along the way we'll discuss the cost of eating meat, organics, GMO's and any other eating topics you desire. We might even eat a little along the way. Food should be simple, healthy and tasty.
Biology is Brenda Hull's passion and was her profession for almost 30 years. After retiring from Young Harris College she still enjoys the natural world on a small farm in Clay County, North Carolina where she raises organic vegetables and fruit and feeds a menagerie of heritage chickens, turkeys, and pigs. Dogs and a horse round out the family. For 5 years she has been the sous chef at Crane Creek Vineyard, preparing tapas on Friday nights and special event foods with Chef David Sanford. Isn't life really all about food?
