Local food rules (Bonnie Preston), 1:45 – 2:15

Bonnie Preston is a former librarian with a hunger for democracy. While she quietly assisted library patrons for decades searching out the knowledge they desired, she amassed a good deal of her own. She has—in good librarian fashion—catalogued much of her knowledge and brings it forth in the timeliest moments. She is the local leader for Alliance for Democracy, a group that works towards Bonnie’s personal passion to preserve the rights of individuals and communities over corporations. After working with communities to safeguard (from Nestle) their rights to their town’s water supply, she became involved with local farmers and farm patrons in her own community to preserve access to their own food supply.  Her laughter punctuates the weighty topics discussed around food sovereignty and her homemade maple cookies melt cynicism from any meeting room table.
