On Dry Land
March 05, 2013
The 2012 drought brought dry, hot summer weather and not much relief through the fall. Our grass turned brown, our water bill went up, and our young trees died, but the drought affected much more than just our lawns.
The Mid-Continent Public Library and the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute are offering a series of presentations examining the far-reaching impact of this recent natural disaster and its bearing on our daily lives. Food prices, the U.S. Farm Bill, and Food Security are all agricultural aspects with direct links to our dinner tables, and each of these subjects will be discussed in a three-part lecture. Both, Julian Binfield and Patrick Westhoff of the FAPRI, will lead these meetings and touch on the factors that affect our food sources directly.
Please join us throughout March and April for this series. Registration is required.
