A City Hall Garden celebration/info fair and climate discussion with Anna Lappé

In her recently released book, Diet for a Hot Planet, The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About It, Anna Lappé notes that our food system is likely responsible for a third of global greenhouse gas emissions.
