Cold and flu season is upon us! In this class, Eric will talk about some immune-boosting foods and herbs we can use to bolster our immune systems. He will also talk about the links between our immune systems and chronic inflammation, and how broader dietary adjustments can reduce inflammation and not only support our immune health, but reduce the risk of many other illnesses believed to arise due to chronic inflammation. Eric will share samples of home-brewed fire cider, and perhaps a few other goodies.

ArtsRiot

Women play a crucial role in the food industry as farmers, chefs, entrepreneurs, producers, and resource providers. While progress has been made in recognition of that role and the economic and social benefits of gender diversity in the workplace, women still face barriers to entry in many fields within the food system. Join us for a conversation moderated by Change the Story, a statewide initiative focused on “[aligning] policy, program, and philanthropy to significantly improve women’s economic status in Vermont” as we explore the challenges and successes experienced by women in the industry here in our state. We will hear from these leaders in their fields about the trends they see in the industry’s approach to female leadership, how Vermont compares to other areas in the country in terms of gender equity, and how they found “a place at the table” in these typically male-dominated fields.
