The Friends of the Scarborough Library present the final session in the four-part series, Cultivating Community: A Four Course Food-for-Thought Series on Scarborough’s Edible Past, Present and Future, Thursday, April 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the library.

This discussion will look at practical steps that individuals, families, groups and businesses can make. The group will draw conclusions from the first three sessions and develop a list of some specific actions that can be taken.

On hand will be Roger Doiron of Scarborough, an advocate for local and regional food systems. He is founder and director of Kitchen Gardeners International, a Maine-based nonprofit network of more than 4,000 individuals from 80 countries who are taking a hands-on approach to “relocalizing” the food supply.

Doiron also works to promote vibrant local, state, and regional food systems through the Eat Local Foods Coalition and the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group.
