Food sustainability is topic for EcoDay keynote

In the Wells Reserve EcoDay keynote, Dr. John E. Carroll, professor of natural resources at the University of New Hamsphire, will address food sustainability for New England. What is the future of local food? Is Maine on your dinner plate? Do you know your farmer?

Dr. Carroll is scheduled to speak at 10:15 am. The presentation is sponsored by the Garden Club Federation of Maine.

Dr. John Carroll studies New England’s capability of feeding itself. His research is focused on increasing the quantity of fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, and grain that are produced for local consumption, and improving the infrastructure needed to accomplish that goal. Carroll received his Ph.D. in resource development from Michigan State University in 1974 and holds geography degrees from Western Michigan University and Louisiana Tech University. His books include Sustainability and Spirituality and Pastures of Plenty: The Future of Food, Agriculture and Environmental Conservation in New England.
