Drake Agricultural Law Center to co-sponsor Agriculture for Life event

October 4, 2011

The Iowa Environmental Council and Drake Law Agricultural Law Center will host "Agriculture for Life" on Nov. 3 in Drake University’s Olmsted Center. The event will feature Frances Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet.

Fresh local foods are bringing diversity to Iowa’s landscape, new tastes at our tables, and richness to our lives. We’ll explore policy options for creating a more sustainable food system while hearing directly from those who grow, eat and love local food. In a state where almost 90 percent of land is involved in agricultural production, food choices matter.

To register, visit www.iaenvironment.org or call 515-244-1194, extension 210.

Drake students can register for a special rate of only $20.
