<< Check out our next Dish discussion

City Market and the Intervale Center have teamed up to create an exploratory series called The Dish. With support from ArtsRiot, we host quarterly panel discussions that dive into hot food issues with the help of local experts.

The Dish: Restorative Agriculture

Wednesday, September 16, 2015
5:30pm – 7:00pm

ArtsRiot, 400 Pine St

Doors open at 5:00pm. Cash bar.

“Fertile soil helps create nourishing food and, in turn, healthy people and robust communities.”

According to Farmers without Borders, regenerative agriculture is any kind of farming that enables the restorative capacity of the earth, improving soil fertility, increasing food production, enhancing vibrant communities and fair economies, and respecting the ecology of the natural world. This lively panel discussion will highlight Vermont growers and farmers -- from fruit farmers to dairy and meat farmers and even native tree growers -- who return more to the earth than they take from it.  You’ll also learn how you can start to practice restorative agriculture right in your own backyard

Brought to you by City Market and the Intervale Center with special thanks to ArtsRiot.
