Bluestem to host salon series with This Perennial Land authors
Bluestem, the wine bar located within French Meadow, is named for a variety of native prairie grass. It's only fitting that this would be the location for a salon series with Paula Westmoreland and Lansing Shepard, authors of The Perennial Land .
Organizers describe This Perennial Land as the story of "an intensely farmed land that has been written off as a 'sacrificial landscape' -- a natural place ceded entirely to industrial use -- even by many concerned about the environment." Through essays and photos, the book explores how farmers can reinvest in the land and use sustainable practices to restore the land.
