Two events are coming up in June and July.
This Saturday, June 18, 10 am- noon, at the Kathleen Clay Edwards Library, Charlie Headington will present slides on Permaculture design, that is, ecological design that imitates and intensifies natural systems while producing four seasons of food. All organic and low-maintenance. Charlie's work has been featured on cable TV. After the hour presentation we will go 2 miles to the Montessori gardens on Horsepen Creek Road to see how to apply the ideas.
The library is at 1420 Price Park Drive, off of New Garden Road, at the new elementary school. Follow the winding road down and then up a hill. 373-2923. It's FREE.
(There is no Slow Food cherry picking event. Just go on your own to Levering Orchard.www.leveringorchard.com.)
June 27th, Monday at 5:30pm and 8:00pm,Carolina Theatre, http://www.carolinatheatre.com/, presents two showings of MONDOVINO, a prize winning documentary of the impact of globalization on the international wine industry. The issues are complex, but the authors are clear about their values and the future of wine. $7 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Box Office is 336-333-2605 for reservations.
AND, in between the two showings, 7:30-8:30 pm there will be A WINE TASTING sponsored by Zeto, Debby and Charlie's favorite wine store.
Remember, July 10, Potluck and Cheese-Making Demo at the Goat Lady Dairy. Demo at 2pm. Potluck at 3pm, followed by a discussion about Slow Food. Please bring your friends.
