Sample Organic Food and Wine at Upcoming Green Village Program

Plainfield, IL — Have you ever wondered what it really means for a food to be “organic” or if organic foods really are better for us? Foods are often marketed as “organic” to convey a health or environmental benefit. At the June 11th Green Village Lecture Series program, sponsored by Hitchcock Design Group, speakers will address the topic of organic foods and explain the benefits of “eating organic.” The program will be followed by a sampling of organic food and wine at an off-site location. The free event begins at 7 pm at the Plainfield Public Library and pre-registration is required.

According to the Organic Trade Association, organic food production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers. Organic foods are minimally processed without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or irradiation to maintain the integrity of the food. At the Green Village program, perspectives will be offered by several local and organic food advocates. Immediately following the event at the library, Wine & Cheese will host a free tasting of organic foods and wines for program participants at their business at 24104 W. Lockport Street.

Wine & Cheese by TCC is a fine wine and artisan cheese shop located in the heart of historic downtown Plainfield. For more information about Wine & Cheese by TCC, please visit www.wcbytcc.com.

The Green Village Lecture Series is a partnership between the Village of Plainfield and the Plainfield Public Library District to host monthly workshops with an environmental focus. Events are held the second Monday of each month, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Plainfield Public Library. To register to attend an event, visit http://Plainfield.lib.il.us/evanced/eventcalendar.asp
