Tony Geraci, Director of Food and Nutrition for Baltimore City Public Schools, and Greg Strella, Farm Manager of Great Kids Farm to speak at Towson Library, Wednesday September 23, 2009 6 – 7:30 pm.
Former Restaurateur Tony Geraci is one of the architects of the national Farm-to-School movement, and of a “best practices” example of innovative approaches to nutrition at his former position at New Hampshire public schools. His department has taken over a 33 acre Catonsville farm now used for vocational training and organic food production for Baltimore City’s schools.
