Book Club – August

Epitaph for a Peach: Four Seasons on My Family Farm by David Mas Masumoto

Travel to the California desert and follow third-generation farmer David Mas Masumoto on his quest to save the Sun Crest peach, an incredibly tasty but delicate and short-lived peach variety. David takes us through the achievements and struggles he encounters during each of the four seasons, including his relationship with invasive pests, sporadic and unpredictable weather changes, market variability, and farming education. In this poetic and often heartbreaking narrative, learn what it takes to be a successful family farmer in modern times.

This Book Club meeting is accompanied by a hands-on culinary experience and will meet in the AEP Education Pavilion on the Community Garden Campus.
