“”Cultivation”, a documentary by Giacchino Taliercio about Joan Gussow and her course on Nutritional Ecology given at Teachers College, premiered in November. This impressive introduction to the life-changing work of Dr. Gussow reflects on her work past and present and her influence on the public. Of particular interest? Our children are in the documentary! Now we’re waiting for the film to open. More to follow, so stay posted.
The Read a Recipe children had a bang-up, great time at Charnews Farm recently. Julie introduced Denise Market, farm manager, who did a stellar job once again, teaching the children about sustainability on the farm and just how important it is. They began their outing in the barn–see the photo–then took a tour. It was a win-win all round. Learning and having fun: how can you beat it? Many thanks to Denise and Peconic Land Trust for their leadership and continued partnership.
