Save the Date! Santa Monica Farmers Market Panel Series: The Conscientious Carnivore
If Food Inc did anything for you it probably made you seriously consider becoming a vegetarian, total omnivore bummer... but there is hope!
For everyone who likes to eat meat and dairy but doesn't want to endorse the commercial animal factory system comes a wonderful FREE event. The Santa Monica Library's quarterly Farmers Market Panel Series is hosting an evening of farmers who are raising animals for meat and dairy in a humane way and offering concerned consumers a choice about what they eat.
The lineup hasn't officially been announced but there will be three farmers who raise lamb, goat, rabbit, chicken, cows and some chefs who prefer to source their animals from these small producers (there's been fliers at Organic Pastures Farmers Market stall for months so chances are they're coming!).
I cannot say enough how amazing it is that we live in a town that does these food events, and does them for free! (Plus they usually have amazing foodie snacks afterward made by one of the panel chefs). Go educate yourself!
