Jared Cates of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association speaks tonight on the environmental, agricultural and nutritional implications of the federal farm bill.

The 2008 Farm Bill expired last year; although Congress failed to renew it, lawmakers extended it until a new agreement can be reached.

The event runs from 7—8 p.m. at Irregardless Cafe, 901 W. Morgan St., Raleigh. It is free.
