Salt Lake City, UT – Thursday on RadioWest the writer and ethnobotanist Gary Nabhan will join us to talk about food and place. Nabhan has spent his life exploring the relationship of people to the land and its native sustenance. So when he talks about preserving the agricultural heritage of rural America or the cuisine of traditional societies or our own biological connection to certain foods, he's talking about culture and its deep dependence on the dwindling natural world.

  • Gary Nabhan will speak Thursday evening at The Salt Lake City Library's Main Auditorium. His lecture is called Bridging the Rural-Urban Divide, and it looks at the impact of urbanization on our water and agricultural resources.
