We build community & resilient food systems

Through programs, workshops, research and events, we bring people together to pass on valuable skills, share knowledge & resources, and celebrate our human connections around food.



We host, appear at, and facilitate many large and small memorable events throughout the year. 



Our workshops and talks are informative, unique and diverse. It’s also a great way to meet like-minded folks.
