Farm to Lectern Speakers Series -
Bringing nationally-recognized agrarian activists to Concord


Gary Hirshberg ∙  Friday, October 12, 2012 


For the first program in the series, the Concord Museum welcomes Gary Hirshberg, the educator, activist, co-founder and chairman of Stonyfield, the successful organic yogurt company. Author of Stirring It Up: How to Make Money and Save the World, Gary is an advocate for change in national food and agriculture policies and a passionate speaker on
sustainability, the profitability of green business, and organic agriculture. In his talk, “Inventing a Truly Sustainable Future,” Hirshberg proposes that it won’t
be possible to have a truly sustainable future if our food makes us sick. The organic and sustainable food movement is about much more than healthy food.  It's about decreased fuel use, reducing our carbon footprint, reducing water use, reducing healthcare costs to society, andcreating healthy jobs and a healthy economy. 7:00 p.m., at the Wood Theater and Arts Center at Middlesex School in
Concord. The speakers series is free, but reservations are requested, 978-369-9763 ext. 216.
