Arlington Heights, IL: 2nd Annual CSA Expo
6:30-9pm
Arlington Heights Library
500 N. Dunton Avenue, 60004
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
Meet local farmers, taste samples, and find out about CSA options in the Northwest Suburbs!

Also featuring a screening of the documentary King Corn
Two recent college grads discover where America’s food comes from when they plant a single acre of corn and follow it from the seed to the dinner plate. With the help of government subsidies, genetically modified seeds and powerful herbicides, America’s most subsidized crop becomes the staple of its cheapest—and most troubling—foods.

Dennis Klocek // Cosmic Rhythms
Working in and with nature immerses us into a sea of rhythmic time and space associations that either enhance or impede the outcomes of our activities. The movement of substances in plants, the cycles of growth and decay, and the alchemical principles behind the Biodynamic preparations are all influenced by  this rhythmic dance.
Join master alchemist, scientist, and artist, Dennis Klocek, in exploring these rhythms to reach a new understanding of how they can be worked with to enhance our daily actions. Day-long workshop, lunch included.

Tim Boyd was born and raised in Ohio, graduated from Case Western Reserve University with a degree in computer engineering, and worked in the defense industry in Northern Virginia for over 20 years. During that time, a slight case of arthritis led him to discover that nutrition makes a difference and nutrition became a serious hobby. After a pleasant and satisfying run in the electronics field, he decided he wanted to do something more important. He is now arthritis free and enjoying his dream job working for the Weston A. Price Foundation.
