Would you rather pay a little more for food now or a lot more for health care later? Cornucopia Cofounder Mark Kastel will explain why we can’t afford not to eat organic when he speaks in Sturgeon Bay, Wis., June 24. The shift to industrial-chemical agriculture over the past 65 years has contaminated our food supply with toxic agrichemicals and resulted in food that is measurably lower in essential nutrients. Mark will discuss the enormous payback, to our health, our families and our communities, of eating a diet of local and certified organic foods.
Hosted by the Door County Environmental Council, this free event will be held at 7 p.m. at the Collins Learning Center, Crossroads at Big Creek, 2041 Michigan Street, Sturgeon Bay, Wis. Contact www.dcec-wi.org or 920-743-6003 for more information.
