uncle-sam-saysFickle Providence! Sometimes one must choose between gardens and history. I’m headed to the latter, but I’d love to hear from you about the former. Both events will take place Thursday, Feb. 26.

For the gardeners and foodies:
From 5:30-8pm, the Apeiron Institute for Sustainable Living is holding an Evolution Forum on Sustainable & Local Food: “We can have a big impact on the size of our ecological footprint with the food we eat, or don’t eat and by choosing where it comes from.” Panelists hail from RI-DEM/Agriculture; Farm Fresh Rhode Island; RI General Assembly; Ledge Ends Produce; and Southside Community Land Trust.

17 Gordon Avenue, Suite 207 Providence. $10 for non-members. 
More info: 401-228-7930 info@apeiron.org

For the history buffs and Abrahamaniacs:
Starting at 7pm, RI Historical Society is holding a special event to open an exhibit on Rhode Island in the Time of Lincoln: “Though Lincoln made only two stops in RI, they were widely attended and remembered. But what did the RI that Lincoln visited look like?” Explore the exhibit, and listen to presentations about the people, places, and attitudes of the times.

110 Benevolent St., Providence
More info: 401-331-8575 x45 dgoulart@rihs.org
