What’s the difference between whole wheat and white bread? This new video from the Lexicon of Sustainability‘s Douglas Gayeton explores the differences between breads, their nutrients, and varying origins. Featured are David Bauer of Farm and Sparrow Bakery in Asheville, North Carolina and Aaron Weber of Petaluma’s Della Fattoria, a family business founded by his parents Edmund and Kathleen in the late 90s.

And the David Brower Center in Berkeley is hosting a free afternoon event on March 1 in conjunction with its ongoing “Lexicon of Sustainability” informational artworks exhibit. There will be a whole host of family activities, including a seed swap, an opportunity to talk to grain and urban gardening experts, whole-grain pizza and musical sing-a-longs.
