Local Food and Poetry

Local author Woody Tasch has been, through the slow money movement, promoting a new economic story—a story about bringing money back down to earth. His new book, SOIL: Notes Towards the Theory and Practice of Nurture Capital has been called "a Walden for the 21st century." In this workshop, Tasch will read from "Poetically Incorrect," Part One of his new book, and from others who have inspired him. The workshop will explore the role of myth in modern culture and include a writing exercise. Tasch is currently launching SOIL--Slow Opportunities for Investing Locally--here in Boulder, so this is an unusual opportunity to think poetically about the practical challenges and opportunities of the local food system. Participants will leave with inspiration, their own new writing, and a copy of Tasch's new book.

Oh, Yes You Can-dy!

Jodi Feinhor-Dennis' love for all things sweet came to a halt years ago when she realized the dairy, gluten, caffeine and sugar in candy and sweets just didn't agree with her body. Making Chanukah suckers out of carob -- the fruit of one of the most familiar and beloved of Israel's tree -- instead of chocolate in her home kitchen made her realize treats can be tailor made to those suffering from allergies. And they can be delicious! Join the “Queen of Carob” and founder of Missy J’s for her expertise in baking and candy-making with carob, learn about the benefits of carob, and enjoy a custom-made carob mousse.
