The CanadianMuseum of Nature is launching a series of evening talks on living in and with nature, called de Natura. The first one is on food security, and is coming up on Thursday, January 17, 2013.

The speaker will be Maurice Hladik, Ottawa-based author of Demystifying Food from Farm to Fork, a book about the complexities of our food production system. He’ll talk about trends in agriculture, including technology, GMOs, and organic farming. There’ll also be a discussion and book-signing, with refreshments available for purchase. The event is 7:30-9:30 p.m. and tickets are $20. You can find more information on the Museum’s website.

Future de Natura evening topics are Exploring Arctic Issues (February 7), Why We Need Nature (March 14) and Living in the Rapidly Changing Arctic (April 11).
