Menu for the Future


Seacoast food and sustainability groupies have been buzzing about Menu for the Future. It’s a reading and discussion group program created by the Northwest Earth Insitute and run locally by the helpful and friendly Granite Earth Institute, their regional partner. The program format is simple: Groups form (anyone can attend) and meet for six weeks. Each week, participants complete a set of short and interesting readings in a workbook. Then during the meetings, the group members exchange thoughts and reactions to the reading. The Granite Earth Institute has created several programs on different aspects of sustainability; Menu for the Future, with its focus on food issues, has been very popular around these parts lately.

A new group is forming in Barrington, NH, and will meet every Monday night for six weeks, starting April 13th. There is a $20 charge for the workbook, but that is the only cost (and a friend can reuse the workbook!). Space is limited, so please contact wberry@llfarm.net to sign up. When this program fills, don’t worry – you can contact Granite Earth Institute to coordinate your own. No special skill is needed.
