The Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers (watch party)
6:30 PM
North Valley Public Library
Over the course of the past three decades, Montana has become one of the leading states in the country in both organic agriculture and production of lentils, a key organic rotation crop that is high in protein and micronutrients. The story of how we got here is a fascinating and heartwarming tale of farmers recognizing existential challenges facing their communities and banding together to create solutions.

Tonight, we'll hear about Montana's organic agriculture movement and pulse crop revolution from one of the farmers at the center of the story: David Oien, Founding Farmer of Timeless Seeds in Ulm. Moderating this conversation will be Missoula-born Liz Carlisle, author of the books Lentil Underground, Grain by Grain (with Bob Quinn), and Healing Grounds. Liz is an Associate Professor in the Environmental Studies Program at UC Santa Barbara.

Co-Hosted as part of the Montana Library Network Virtual Programming series This watch party is held at North Valley Public Library, the speakers will present remotely via Zoom.
