“Sustainability & Simplicity”—a talk and discussion by Diana Beresford-Kroeger.


When: May 12th – Doors open at 6:45pm for a 7pm start

Where: The Branch Restaurant—Kemptville

Sometimes our greatest treasures lie close to home. This could describe award-winning Diana Beresford-Kroeger’s approach to life as well as our great fortune to have this scientist and writer living in our midst.

An author of scientific publications, television and radio programs, short stories and novels, her work is infused with her passion for celebrating and valuing our natural surroundings.

“Simplicity is the pathway to the future. I live the 200 feet diet, the distance from my garden to my kitchen. My food is stored for the winter and is all organic. Our chickens are housed in a passive solar chicken-house. Nut trees supply plant protein and the orchard gives us fruit.”

On May 12th at the Branch restaurant in Kemptville, you will have a chance to hear how Diana balances a full career of research, advocacy, writing and charitable work with making sure she always has a full year’s supply of her own food on hand for herself and her family. After her talk, she invites a discussion of ideas and experiences.

“Healthy food gives a healthy body. And then we must hold hands to look after our greater environment…so let’s talk”

This event starts at 6.45pm, is free and open to anyone who wishes to attend.

The Branch restaurant is at 15 Clothier Street East in downtown Kemptville.
