An Evening with the Executive Director of Food and Water Watch and Glynwood President in Beacon

Tuesday, July 23rd at 7pm at Fovea Exhibitions, 143 Main Street. 

Reserve your seat and join the D.C.-based Executive Director of Food and Water Watch, Wenonah Hauter, along with Glynwood President Kathleen Frith in an intimate discussion about Ms. Hauter's new book Foodopoly- The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America.

Attendees receive a signed copy of the book and a first-hand account of the business behind the meat, vegetables, grains and milk that most Americans eat.

Through meticulous research, Hauter presents a shocking account of how agricultural policy has been hijacked by lobbyists, driving out independent farmers and food processors in favor of the likes of Cargill, Tyson, Kraft, and ConAgra. She demonstrates how the impacts ripple far and wide, from economic stagnation in rural communities at home, to famines in poor countries overseas. I

Kathleen Frith is President of Glynwood, one of the nation’s leading sustainable agriculture and food organizations, located in Cold Spring, New York.  Glynwoods’s mission is to help communities in the Northeast save farming through working at the intersection of communities and the opportunities available to farmers and landowners. Glynwood farms its own 225-acre land using environmentally sustainable farming, and is part of a network of leading thinkers on sustainable agriculture that spans the nation and includes partners around the globe.

Wenonah Hauter is the Executive Director of Food & Water Watch, a D.C.-based watchdog organization focused on corporate and government accountability relating to food, water, and fishing. She has worked and written extensively on food, water, energy, and environmental issues at the national, state, and local levels. She owns a working farm in The Plains, Virginia.
