EcoLogic’s 2015 fall benefit, Turning the Tables: Nurturing Resilience, will be a one-of-a-kind dinner party on October 1, 2015.
The event will feature 10 conversations at 10 tables on topics that touch on aspects of EcoLogic’s work at the intersection of conservation, culture, and development in Central America and Mexico.
Jordan Rich, of Boston’s WBZ Radio, interviewed one of the 10 expert facilitators that will join EcoLogic for dinner: Frances Moore Lappé, Executive Director of the Small Planet Institute. Frances is the author or co-author of 19 books including Diet for a Small Planet, which sold three million copies. Frances was named by Gourmet Magazine as one of 25 people (including Thomas Jefferson, Upton Sinclair, and Julia Child), whose work has changed the way America eats. Frances is the co-founder of three organizations, including the Oakland-based think tank Food First and the Small Planet Institute, which she leads with her daughter Anna Lappé.
