They were wonderful but the location just didn't work. It's not practical or possible to have quiet meditation in the middle of the Athenaeum. That space was not designed to be quiet or contemplative. It would have been so much better in the Batza Room for example

It was a super informative event that looked at the issue of Food Justice from a number of different, important perspectives.

I enjoyed it. A different type of venue for me, but worth the time.
