If you've seen "Food, Inc," here is a great chance to learn a bit about current food politics and sustainable issues we can all get involved in, with a chance to mingle with conscious foodies.

Jill Richardson will be here, who's a great writer on food issues, along with writer-farmer Jason Mark from Alemany Farms. Jill will talk about what current important food issues we can all participate it in right now, like food safety and school lunch reform. Jason will provide some tips on how we can get involved in food production in our own backyards.

Jill Richardson's blog La Vida Locavore, is listed as one of the top ten blogs on sustainable food by the New York Times. She contributes regularly to AlterNet, is a member of the Organic Consumers Association policy advisory board, and the author of “Recipe for America: Why Our Food System Is Broken and What We Can Do to to Fix it.“

Jason Mark is a writer-farmer active in the sustainable food movement. He is a co-author of Building the Green Economy: Success Stories from the Grassroots and the editor of the Earth Island Journal. His writings have appeared in The Nation, The Progressive, Utne Reader, San Francisco Chronicle, Gastronomica, Alternet.org, and Grist.org. He co-manages San Francisco’s Alemany Farm, a four-acre organic fruit and vegetable garden in the city.

At Viracocha, a new arts space/store on Valencia @ 22nd, next to ATA, from 630 to 730/8. Please RSVP. I'll have snacks from Bi-Rite Market.
