Liz Carlisle will be at the Great Falls Public Library discussing her book Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America. Journalist and native Montanan, Carlisle is a Fellow at the Center for Diversified Farming Systems at UC Berkley and she is a former legislative aide to Senator Jon Tester. The Lentil Underground focuses on a community of farmers in north central Montana engaged in a radically different style of farming from the industrial methods typically used. The uncertain future of American agriculture looks much brighter due to these farmers using crops that are drought-tolerant and do not require chemical treatment.
This event will also feaure creative lentil dishes prepared by the kitchens of Pizazz!
