What are Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)? Why are they considered risky and unsustainable? Since GM foods aren’t labeled, how are consumers supposed to avoid them when shopping and eating out? Analiese Paik, founder of the Fairfield Green Food Guide, will lead a lively, informative, and interactive 45 minute-hour session that answers all these questions and empowers guests to make Non-GMO food choices at home, at the grocery store, in restaurants, and at the farmers’ market.
New Canaan Nature Center will once again play host to a winter farmers’ market on Tuesdays, offering the only weekday winter market in the county.

Walter Stewart’s Market, a big supporter of local farms and food, will be catering lunch again this year.
