On Tuesday, June 5 at 6:30pm at the Belfast Free Library,106 High St, nutritionist John Bagnulo will give a free presentation titled “How agriculture and factory farming objectives influence our health.” This event is sponsored by the Belfast Free Library and the Belfast Co-op.

Learn how large scale factory farming falls short of providing the nourishment we need, unlike that offered by small, diversified, local farms. Soil sustainability, plant cultivars and animal husbandry practices play a significant role in determining both the quality and quantity of nutrients, which are needed to prevent chronic disease.
