Morven Farm Tour & Farm Bill Discussion Tomorrow

On Tuesday, August 9th (tomorrow), a group of Food & Water Watch organizers will be in Charlottesville to lead a roundtable discussion about the upcoming 2012 U.S. Farm Bill, with a pre-talk tour of UVa's very own Morven Kitchen Garden Project.

More information and registration details can be found on the Food & Water Watch event page:

Join Food & Water Watch and Morven Farm at the University of Virginia for a garden tour at Morven Farm's Kitchen Garden. We'll talk about why small-scale, organic farms are essential to rebuilding our local food infrastructure and how Virginia is redefining the landscape of local food! The tour will start at 6 pm.

Then, we'll head over to nearby Henderson Farm (2310 Monacan Trail Road, Charlottesville, VA 22903) for refreshments and to hear from more small-scale farmers and food advocates in the region. The roundtable will start at 7:30 PM.

The Morven Kitchen Garden serves as a research and teaching laboratory at the University of Virginia that provides a sustainable food source for Morven-based programs and staff. It provides UVA faculty members and students with hands-on opportunities for studying food production cycles and the impact of agriculture on community and economics.
