Wilton Go Green president Becky Bunnell wants people to start living sustainably to improve the environment. Wednesday at 7 p.m., Wilton Go Green along with the Wilton Library , Fairfield Green Food Guide and Fairfield Organic Teaching Farm will present "Nourishing Our Community." The program aims to educate people about where their food comes from and how it affects the world around them.
Part of "Nourishing Our Community" will be a panel discussion, led by Annaliese Paik, founder and editor of the Fairfield Green Food Guide, featuring people who have already started sustainable living in Wilton. The panel includes Annie Farrell of Millstone Farm , Tim LaBant, chef/owner of the Schoolhouse Restaurant , and Wilton High School teacher Jim Hunter, who is also founder of the edible school garden.
"Wilton High School has an organic garden producing edible food, while Millstone Farm has its Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and provides locally grown foods to area restaurants. Plus the Schoolhouse Restaurant features a variety of dishes prepared with the finest ingredients from local farms," Bunnell said in a press release.
Before the panel discussion there will be a screening of "Nourish: Food + Community." The film, being shown for the first time in Fairfield County, traces the relationship between food and people and shows how food connects to such issues as biodiversity, public health, climate change and social justice.
