Contributed by Marian Brown

The Sustainability Café on Monday, December 3rd will feature Kristin Kimball, author of "The Dirty Life", discussing her decision to leave a career as a journalist and begin a new career as the co-owner and operator of a CSA farm. The Sustainability Café will be held in Center for Natural Sciences Room 112 at 4:00PM in conjunction with the Environmental Seminar.

Kristin Kimball grew up in central New York, attended Harvard, then moved to New York City where she worked at a literary agency, taught creative writing, and freelanced for magazines and travel guides. In 2002, she interviewed a "wingnut farmer" named Mark, and took more than a professional interest in both him and his vocation. Together, Mark and Kristin founded Essex Farm in 2004 – the world’s first full-diet CSA providing more than two hundred people with vegetables, dairy and meat – and became "professionally dirty".

This event is free and open to the public.

“Teachable edibles” – local, organic and/or seasonal snacks – for the Fall 2012 Sustainability Café series are being sponsored by Ithaca College Dining Services whose motto is “Sustainability – Healthy – Fresh.” Please bring your reusable mug and fill up at the nearest drinking fountain or provide your own beverage of choice.

Drink in a new way to think in the Sustainability Café.
