As part of One Book, One Marin, the Marin County Free Library is pleased to welcome Jason Mark, co-founder of San Francisco’s Alemany Farm and editor of Earth Island Journal on Saturday, March 1 at 3:00 p.m. at the Marin City Library for a discussion about the promise and pitfalls of urban farming. In addition to co-managing San Francisco’s largest food production site, Mark writes frequently about agriculture and the environment. His writings have appeared in The Nation, The American Prospect, Gastronomica, and Salon, among other publications and websites.
Listen to a fascinating KPFA radio interview with Jason Mark as he discusses his book “Building the Green Economy: Success Stories from the Grassroots,” which you can borrow from the Marin County Free Library.
The Marin City Library is located at 164 Donahue Street in Marin City. For more information, please call 415-332-6158. This event promises to be a very informative and interesting discourse on urban farming and the importance of access to healthy food for all, and we look forward to seeing you there!
