Farmer’s Markets in the Lehigh Valley begin opening throughout this month of May. These are a wonderful resource for those of us that value knowing the source of our food and want to support local food producers. All of these markets provide a unique shopping experience where customers can sample many of the foods, develop relationships with the vendors, discover unique varieties of foods and plants and learn healthy cooking tips at a fun, family-oriented destination.
Today on Living Green in the Lehigh Valley we are featuring a recurring event on renewable energy and sustainability, a monthly lecture series presented by the Mid-Atlantic Renewable Energy Association or MAREA. We have as our guest, Philip Jones, a MAREA board member. Phil, tell us a little about the lecture series.
This is Bill Dautremont-Smith, guest host this evening. Our guest is Lorna Midgelow-Yearwood, an environmental consultant; she teaches vegetable gardening at Northampton Community College and is active with many local environmental non-profits.
Lorna, let’s set the stage by talking about the predicted impacts of climate change in Pennsylvania?
