UPDATE: Sign the petition TODAY! YOUR VOICE COUNTS!
It failed in Florida and is still up for vote in Iowa and Minnesota….

Lawmakers are taking action to address the egregious conditions that exist at factory farms. But not to create laws to prevent future violations of food safety regulations, environmental quality standards, workers’ rights, and animal rights on the part of irresponsible farmers.  Instead, legislation pending in three states would make taking photos of a farm a criminal act, one of which may clear a significant hurdle as early as this week on its way to becoming a law.

Intro to Backyard Viticulture and Wine Tasting: May 22nd

The 2011 Stonebridge AgriCulturalist Season presents…
An Introduction to Backyard Viticulture and Wine Tasting
for Slow Food Boulder

Slow Food Boulder invites you to join hosts John Martin and Kayann Short at Stonebridge Farm, 5169 Ute Highway, on Sunday, May 22, 3-5:30 pm, for a presentation on local wine grape growing, vineyard tour, tasting of Stonebridge wine and appetizer potluck. Cost is $25/member; $30/non-member.

The presentation will include a tour and history of the Stonebridge vineyard and discussion of cold hardy varieties grown in this region. The talk will also address the benefits of establishing a local wine growing tradition and the ways local wine can be a part of a local food movement. To inspire those who wish to grow their own table wine, the lecture will be followed by a tasting of Stonebridge wine, now in its fourth year of production, and an appetizer potluck, with a farm tour available for interested participants.

Please bring an appetizer to share, BYOB (Colorado wineries encouraged) if desired and questions about backyard viticulture. Stonebridge is a working farm so appropriate footwear (i.e., no high heels) is strongly suggested.

DIRECTIONS: Stonebridge is 9/10 of a mile east from the intersection of highways 36 and 66. Look for the big red farmhouse on your left, park in the lot off the entrance, and walk up the driveway past the barn toward the greenhouse.

RSVP (REQUIRED): info@slowfoodboulder.com. Your place is confirmed upon receipt of your check made out to Slow Food Boulder and mailed to Carol Carlson, PO Box 525, Boulder, CO 80306.
