Food for Thought Book Club CdA: Gaining Ground

March 7/6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Inland NW Food NetworkThis month we’ll be discussing Gaining Ground: a Story of Farmers Markets, Local Food, and Saving the Family Farm by Forrest Pritchard.

One fateful day in 1996, after discovering that five freight cars’ worth of glittering corn have reaped a tiny profit of $18.16, young Forrest Pritchard vows to save his family’s farm. What ensues – through hilarious encounters with all manner of livestock and colorful local characters – is a crash course in sustainable agriculture. Pritchard’s biggest ally is his renegade father, who initially questions his son’s career choice and rejects organic foods for sugary mainstream fare. But just when the farm starts to turn heads at local farmers’ markets, his father’s health takes a turn for the worse. With poetry and humor, this inspiring memoir tugs on your heartstrings and feeds your soul long after you’ve finished.

Held in conjunction with the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, the Food for Thought Book Club is free and open to the public on the first Wednesday of each month from 6 – 8:00 pm. Copies of the book can be reserved at the Library or purchased at The Well Read Moose in Coeur d’Alene.
