Join us at Fire Island G Street café for a discussion of growing wheat in Alaska led by MFA in writing candidate Teri White Carns. Hear about:
§ How the lack of wheat in Sitka starred in a romantic story of Russian Alaska.
§ What it takes to grow wheat in Alaska in 2016, who grows it, and who buys it.
§ How much wheat Alaskans eat per capita, and where it comes from.
§ How warming temperatures could change wheat farming in Alaska.
§ What that means for local food security and sustainable wheat and grains.
