RARITAN TWP., NJ - Hunterdon Land Trust’s upcoming Conservation Conversation program offers both food for thought and thoughts on food.

The program “What’s the Future of Local Food?” spotlights the rapid changes to local food systems in recent years. From restaurants, Farmers’ Markets and Community SupportED Agriculture (CSAs) to purchasing organically grown food via the Internet and ordering online from large chain supermarkets for home delivery, the options for getting fresh, flavorful meals has spiked.

This Conservation Conversation explores the potential impacts of changes on local farmers, small businesses and existing food systems, and how to respond to them. Guests include Alex Sawatzky of Sandbrook Meadow Farm and Ralph Celebre, owner of Basil Bandwagon Natural Market.

The program will be held in the wagon house of the Dvoor Farm, 111 Mine St. here on Monday, June 11 at 2:30 p.m.

This event is free, but please register in advance by emailing or calling 908-237-4582. Light refreshments will be served.

Conservation Conversations are peer-to-peer learning opportunities -- not lectures. Everyone is encouraged to participate in an active discussion on a variety of thought-provoking topics while meeting others who share your interests.

The next Conservation Conversation on equestrian recreation will be held Sept. 12.
