If you’re not familiar with Wendell Berry, I can tell you that probably no description I could write would be comprehensive. Among the descriptors would be novelist, environmental activist, farmer, poet and pioneer of sorts who is often described as a modern-day Thoreau.Mark Bittman says he’s the “soul of the real food movement” as well as advocate for small farms and conservation from his own farm in northern Kentucky where his family has lived for generations. For a sample of Berry's work, visit this GoodReads quotation page.
Wendell Berry will be in Nashville May 2 at Montgomery Bell Academy for a discussion with theology professor Norman Wirzba to answer the question, “What Makes a Healthy Community?” Proceeds from the event will benefit Siloam Family Health Center, a Christian charitable clinic for the uninsured located in Berry Hill.
