If you choose cage-free eggs, it's probably because you want them to come from hens that get outdoors. More often than not, those hens may be technically "cage-free," but their home is a far cry from the picture on the carton. Egg eaters in search of an honest dozen are better off with the "pasture-raised" label. Join CUESA for a discussion with Douglas Gayeton, creator of The Lexicon of Sustainability, a series of "information art" photo collages that teach the vocabulary of sustainable agriculture. Joining the conversation will be two Ferry Plaza farmers who offer pastured eggs: Marin Sun Farms owner David Evans and Charlie Sowell of Rolling Oaks Ranch. The event will include a screening of "The Story of an Egg," one of 24 short films that will supplement the Lexicon.

This panel discussion, sponsored by the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture, will take place at the Ferry Building. The discussion goes from 6:30 until 8:00. A reception with farmers market refreshments will follow.
