No matter where in the world you are....Got a few minutes on Sunday at noon, 12 p.m. eastern (that’s 9 a.m. Pacific, and 6 p.m. GMT)?
If you read my post From Paris to Malabar to Your Table, you already met Louis Bromfield, Ohio farm boy turned Pulitzer-winning writer and buddy of Gertrude Stein and F. Scott Fitzgerald in Paris between the World Wars turned Ohio farm boy again. And you found that that what you eat is what he helped bring you. And that he bought an Ohio farm in 1939 that modeled sustainable farming, diversified local foods, and all the things we are starting to realize are the future of food.
So this Sunday, in a bold and possibly hopeless experiment in a remote rural area, I’m going to have a go at a Zoom chat (30 minutes) about this post, all the posts, and a nice view, all live from Louis Bromfield’s Malabar Farm, subject to weather (which looks promising, actually, but this is Ohio, and it rains there), phone connection, and disruptive randos. I feel like Alexander Graham Bell, I tell you.
Got a few minutes or think you might? Email me at nonboringhistory (at) gmail dot com for an invite. If it’s canceled, it’s canceled. But you won’t be alone, and you can say you were there for the first Zoom with the Non-Boring Historian!
