Back to Basics: Orga
Main Library
Monday, May. 9, 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Want to learn how to garden and be kind to the environment at the same time? Why not reduce your environmental impact? This program is not so much “anti-chemical” as it is “pro-gardening.” We will focus on the components of environmental stewardship and offer a basic overview of gardening with emphasis on low impact methodology. By improving/building soil health, utilizing companion and trap crops, and practicing specific, easily implemented cultural controls, you can improve the overall health of your garden with the aim of growing a naturally resistant garden.

CSAs: What Can They
Main Library
Thursday, May. 12, 1:30 p.m.
Cindy Delvin, from Delvin Farms, will be talking about CSAs (Consumer Supported Agriculture.)
With CSAs, consumers can be certain that their food is produced in the safest of environments.  If you are interested in having fresh and local food monthly or weekly, CSAs are for you.

Delvin Farms has been growing local produce since 1972 on a 140 acre farm located in College Grove along the Harpeth River.  They grow a large variety of certified organic vegetables ten months out of the year.   In 1997, the Delvins began the process of turning the farm into a certified organic operation and the farm became certified organic in 1998.  Delvin Farms is one of the local businesses at the Franklin Farmer’s Market every Saturday.

The Food System and
Main Library
Tuesday, May. 24, 6:30 p.m.
J.B. Ruhl, an expert in environmental, natural resources and property law at Vanderbilt Law School, will provide an overview of our vast and highly-regulated global food system and the push for reform.

"Every piece of food and drop of drink you put in your mouth is the end product of a social-economic-environment system—the food system," said Ruhl, who is also co-director of the Energy, Environment and Land Use Program. "Think back to last night's dinner, whether a quick fast food meal or one home-cooked from scratch. Where did it come from? Do you have any concerns about how all of the ingredients were handled, processed and prepared along the way? Why are a growing number of people advocating for change through the New Food Movement?"

Ruhl's talk will be based on a popular law school seminar that he teaches with topics that include agriculture and the environment, food safety regulation, the farm-to-table movement, sustainable agriculture, and more.

Ruhl taught at Florida State University College of Law before joining the Vanderbilt faculty in 2011. He began his academic career at the Southern Illinois University School of Law, where he taught and earned a doctorate in geography. He received his J.D. from the University of Virginia Law School.
