Featured Program


April 13, 2018 - Social time, 6:30 (snacks welcome) Program, 7:00

    Our school systems and holidays still nod to our agrarian past. But for most of us, our lives are not structured around soil preparation, planting time, harvest schedules, or feeding livestock. We might spend a couple minutes a day thinking about where our food comes from—and that time is probably focused on the logistics of purchasing food from a retailer and/or consuming a prepared meal. We specialize, and in that sense, the food industry is no different. But at what cost?  Maureen Best, Executive Director of Local Environmental Agricultural Project (LEAP) will explore what we can do as individuals, organizations, and communities to shift power dynamics and create more equitable food systems.

      Maureen has over twelve years of experience working with food, agriculture and community. Her experience includes teaching high school agriculture in Raleigh, NC, working with migrant farmworkers in eastern NC and in the Colorado plains, doing food safety inspections in Boulder CO, and studying the economic viability of the local food system in Northern Colorado. With a MA in Anthropology from Colorado State University and undergraduate degrees in Agriculture Education, Spanish, and Anthropology from North Carolina State University, she and her family live in Roanoke and love it.
