Lecture: Foodways in Montgomery County's Agricultural Reserve

Claudia Kousoulas and Ellen Letourneau, authors of Bread & Beauty: A Year in Montgomery County's Agricultural Reserve

Just as the force and flow of ancient glaciers deposited soil and shaped hills, our decisions about property, policy, family, and food also shape the landscape. So much of what we value—a clean environment, local food, a diverse landscape, and a varied economy—comes together in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve. Join the authors of Bread & Beauty: A Year in Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve as they trace the reserve's history, as well as the contemporary challenges faced by family farms trying to establish a new generation, new farmers seeking land and markets, and the shared community efforts required to preserve this special place.
