Eat Local for Less with Julie Castillo
Organic, All Natural, Cage Free—what’s it all mean? In this class, you’ll explore alternatives to the industrial food system: CSAs, farmer’s markets, food co-ops, and more, where the focus is on delicious, healthy food grown by environmentally responsible methods. When was the last time you bit into a tomato that exploded on your tongue the way they did when you were a kid? Taste industrial foods alongside local, organic, and sustainable alternatives. Discover how to find sources of great local food—and pay less than you do at the grocery store!
Julie Castillo is a college anthropology instructor, writing instructor, enrichment curriculum designer, and futurist. She holds an MA in sociocultural anthropology from Catholic University with a specialty in gender studies and ethnopsychology. In contrast to the chorus of strident voices on many sides of the food debate, Julie frames the discussion of alternative foods in positive terms and peaceful language.
