CHAMBERSBURG, PA. – The Fulton Center for Sustainable Living at Wilson College will host a series of workshops called “FRESH! – Finding Responsible Eating Strategies for Health” in January, February and March.

All workshops will begin at 1:30 p.m. and be held in Sarah’s Coffeehouse on the lower level of Lenfest Commons on the Wilson campus.

The first workshop focuses on the film of the same name, FRESH, and will be held Saturday, Jan. 15, After watching the film by ana Sofia joanes about our food system and the movement to make it better and more sustainable, participants will take part in a discussion with local food producers. A trailer for FRESH can be seen at www.freshthemovie.com.

Other workshops in the series include:

“Radical Homemakers,” a discussion about Shannon Hayes’ new book, “Radical Homemakers,” on Saturday, Feb. 19. The book looks at men and women across the United States who have opted to focus their lives on home and hearth as a political and ecological act, and who have chosen to center their lives around family and community not only for personal fulfillment, but also as a way to bring about cultural change.
A panel discussion on “Healthy Eating Traditions: Then and Now,” on Saturday, March 19. The discussion will explore the history and vision for the future of eating and more. Local health educator Cindy Weidmen will moderate the session, which also will feature Maureen Diaz of the Weston A. Price Foundation, a national organization dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet; and Paul and Rhonda Clemmer, a local couple who have been selling health food and teaching classes on healthy eating for 16 years.

Those interested in attending must preregister by Jan. 8. The cost is $10 for each workshop or $25 for all three. A copy of Hayes’ book is included with the series registration. Contact FCSL Program Manager Chris Mayer at 717-264-4141, Ext. 3247 or christine.mayer@wilson.edu for more information.
