Food in the City: Sprout Spaghetti Dinner

February 23, 2011 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join Groundwork Somerville as we present at Sprout’s monthly spaghetti dinner.  Food Not Bombs will be serving the spaghetti at 730PM with performances and presentations starting at 8PM. The theme for this month’s sprout spaghetti dinner is Food in the City.

From the event organizers: “When we think about the origins of food, we might imagine hunter gatherers or yeoman farmers or industrial agriculture. As city dwellers in the 2010s, what are the politics of the food we eat? Where does it come from? How does it get here? How much choice do we have in the matter? Who decides where to put grocery stores in urban neighborhoods? What happens to the food leftover in cafes and groceries after the lights go out? What happens to the wild foods growing around the city? Who even knew there were wild foods growing around the city?”

This month’s presenters and performers include ::

+ Tai Dinnan from Groundwork Somerville on maple tree tapping

+ The Millstone Coop on backyard chickens

+ Nick Patch on urban foraging

+ Food Not Bombs

+ The Davis Square Yogurt Making Co-op

+ Keith Simmons on subirrigated gardening
