Slow Food Tampa Bay's next membership meeting featuring permaculturist Cory Brennan - Monday, March 28

If you're already a member of the Tampa Bay chapter of Slow Food International or would like to become one, the next meeting will be held at the Jimmie B. Keel Regional Library on Monday, March 28.

The featured speaker at this month's membership meeting is Cory Brennan, a certified permaculture designer, educator and writer, who will discuss how this method of farming benefits the environment through preservation of natural resources.

Slow Food Tampa Bay is also sponsoring a series of free (with RSVP) West Coast Florida farm tours to highlight those same permaculture principles. Upcoming tours include the Freedom House Farm in New Port Richey on March 22 and a March 30 tour of both the Fair House Farm and Emmanuel Roux’s community garden in St. Petersburg. For more information about the tours, and other meetings and events, visit the Slow Food Tampa Bay calendar.

The meeting is open to members and the public alike; there is no cost to attend.

6:30-8:30 p.m., Monday, March 28. Jimmie B. Keel Regional Library located at 2902 S. Bearss Ave., Tampa.
