The personal and societal benefits of eating with intention and compassion are part of our contemporary consciousness in a new way. These will be the considerations of an engaging interfaith program featuring keynote speaker William Duesing, founder and former Executive Director of the Connecticut Chapter of NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association). Two panel discussions will follow: 1) Patrick Horan of Waldingfield Farm, John Morosani of Laurel Hill Farm, and Shamu Sadeh of Adamah Farm will speak about food production as it relates to human health, animal welfare and protection of the land; and 2) Rabbi Natan Margalit, author Organic Torah website and Rabbi of the Greater Washington Coalition for Jewish Life, and Rev. Susan McCone, Rector of St. John's Church, Washington, CT, will address the moral and spiritual aspects of food. A question and answer period and refreshments will follow.
This program is a collaboration between Wisdom House and the Greater Washington Coalition on Jewish Life.
