Book Club

As part of our effort to be a place of education and reflection on topics such as food, agriculture, and ecology, Little Portion Farm hosts periodic book club meetings throughout the year. This is a great opportunity to delve into topics relevant to the mission of the farm, connect with others in our community and discuss how we can cultivate a deeper awareness of our connection with all of creation. We often meet in the Shrine of St. Anthony library or occasionally outdoors by the farm in the warmer months. All are welcome to attend any session, even if you have not joined us before!
