While it’s obvious that food requires water to grow, many consumers fail to understand how their grocery store shopping habits can impact conservation efforts at farms and ranches across the country. Author Florencia Ramirez detailed those connections in her 2017 book Eat Less Water, which argues that our own kitchens hold the key to sustainable water solutions, and she’s bringing her message to the Ventura Food Co-op at Spice-Topia in Ventura this Thursday, April 21st, at 6 p.m.
As an Earth Day kick-off celebrating our partnership with local farmers through Farmivore, the Ventura Food Co-op is hosting Ramirez — who is a researcher at the University of Chicago and lives in Oxnard — Florencia will be discussing her work and signing her books.
After the talk, Co-op members and guests will receive a 20% off coupon through online orders for your first fresh Vegetable order through the Co-op.
