A Meaningful Morning at the Hickories


Earlier this month, I was delighted to bring sourdough to The Hickories, a 45 acre organic farm in nearby Ridgefield, CT. Dina Brewster, founder and owner, hosted a lovely and meaningful breakfast discussion led by scientist, environmental activist, farmers' rights advocate and author, Dr. Vandana Shiva. Dr. Shiva spoke about saving seeds, biodiversity, and agriculture. Martha Stewart was in attendance, and wrote about the inspiring morning on her blog. Phoebe Cole Smith of Dirt Road Farm provided the beautiful, delicious breakfast with produce from The Hickories' fields and from her own farm. I'm honored to have been a part of such a wonderful event, and to work with these wonderful local producers. Thank you!
