Thoughtful Living Series Continues at River Forest Library with "Your Grandma was a Locavore"

Eating locally and with the Seasons

The River Forest Parks Foundation and the River Forest Public Library are pleased to present a series of monthly community programs in 2011 centered around the theme of “Thoughtful Living”.  The next topic in the Thoughtful Living Series include Your Grandma Was a Locavore- Thursday, May 12 at 7 p.m.

What does it mean to “eat local”? Like the idea of eating seasonal produce grown on regional farms but wonder what’s in season near you this week? And just how are you supposed to eat local in the winter in Chicago? Join us for a discussion with members of Growing Power, the urban agriculture organization featured in the documentary Fresh.

Growing Power teaches individuals and communities sustainable practices to grow, process, market, and distribute food. Learn how eating “green” can mean eating fresher, healthier foods while reducing your grocery bill and supporting local farmers.

We hope you will drop in for this special series of events!  River Forest Library, 735 Lathrop Avenue, River Forest.  Programs are free and our website is, phone is 708-366-5205.
