Calaveras Grown features agricultural writer, speaker Feb. 25

    Calaveras Grown will host a local-food dinner and social Feb. 25 featuring internationally renowned agricultural writer, speaker and advocate Lynn Miller.
    Miller is one of the country’s foremost experts on small farms. A multi-faceted speaker, author, storyteller, artist, teacher, and farmer, his efforts to champion the causes, and advocate the support, of the small independent family-based farms and ranches of North America have made a significant difference over the last three decades.
        As the originator/owner/publisher/editor of The Small Farmer’s Journal dating to 1976, he has offered to more than 40,000 subscribers around the world a powerful tool for self-sufficiency, sustainability and community.
    Paul Hunter is coming with Miller to share in this event. Hunter is a poet, musician, instrument maker, teacher, editor and publisher who has won dozens of awards for his work, including the 2005 Washington State Book Award.
    Exclusively locally-grown food and beverages will be served for the event.
  The event seeks to inspire the community to think about and act toward bio-regional interdependence and local food security. The event will take place at the Mokelumne Hill Town Hall. Social hour begins at 6 p.m., dinner at 7 followed by speakers Miller and Hunter.
    Cost is $35 per person.
