Food Summit : Saturday, October 28th, 10am- 4pm, Plemmons Student Union
The Sustainable Development Department is once again a proud sponsor of the High Country Food Summit. This year's gathering of scholars, farmers, and food lovers, explores the theme “Dynamic Traditions, Resourceful Communities.”
Highlights include a conversation with Ronni Lundy, author of Victuals, as well as an exploration of how communities are building economic and ecological wealth from food waste. Lundy’s James Beard award-winning cookbook presents a tapestry of stories, photographs, and recipes that documents the evolution of Appalachian Foodways.
The afternoon will examine the issue of food waste and how composting at the community scale can maximize and localize benefits. Other activities will encourage attendees to explore what makes High Country communities both unique and uniquely regenerative: self-healing, self-sustaining, innovative, and resourceful. Local lunch provided by F.A.R.M. Cafe.
Pre-Registration Required: $15- students; $30- general; Lunch included with ticket
