Amy Cox, an advocate for green and sustainable living in suburban communities, will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at the Community Hall at the Town Center, 765 Portola Road in Portola Valley.
Ms. Cox's talk, "Eating Local: Benefits that Extend Beyond the Palate & the Plate," will address the practice of eating fresh locally grown food that is also in season, and how eating in this way supports a local and sustainable agricultural community.
Ms. Cox is the founder of Chicago-based "subURBAN homestead," which offers lectures, classes and events for organized groups, including corporations, associations, students and nonprofits.
