Draeger's program on organic foodsDraeger's Market in San Mateo will hold two free panel discussions Sunday, April 11, on the benefits of organic fruits and vegetables, according to Draeger's spokesperson Mary Claire DeSoto.
One panel will be made up of local organic farmers, who will discuss their methods of farming and the nutritional value of organic produce. On the other panel, nutritionists will discuss the scientific bases for the claims that organic foods are more healthful.
The discussions will be held at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Draeger's cooking school at the store, located at 222 E. 4th Ave. in San Mateo.
Two presentations, including one on the Jelich Ranch by farmer Terence Welch, will be given at noon in the private dining room at the store.
