Bob Quinn, an organic farmer from Big Sandy, Montana and Liz Carlisle, a Lecturer in the School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences at Stanford University, will deliver a lecture on their new book Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, and Healthy Food at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, at the Procrastinator Theater. This event, hosted by the MSU Sustainable Food and Bioenergy Systems Program and the Montana Institute on Ecosystems, is free and open to the public to attend.

In their talk on Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs, and Healthy Food (Publication Date: March 5, 2019) you’ll hear the story of this straight-shooting “green economy cowboy” in his own words—following Bob from the farm fields of Montana to Italian university research labs where he discovered the health benefits of ancient wheat. With his co-author Liz Carlisle, author of the award-winning Lentil Underground, Bob shares the practical wisdom he has learned from a lifetime of farming, from the day he stopped trying to grow food “on the cheap,” to his work creating renewable energy in Montana on his farm. 

A book signing with Bob Quinn and Liz Carlisle will follow the presentation. The MSU Bookstore will have copies of Grain by Grain available for purchase.
