FOODLAND: Sustainable ways to grow land and food, economical and creative ways to enjoy local cuisine.
Date: Wednesday March 25, 2009
Place: Peter Pratt’s Inn
Yorktown Heights, NY
Time: 5:00-5:45 p.m. – networking and appetizers. Meet local farmers and taste their products.
6:00-8:00 p.m. – food courses alternating with presentations by restaurateur Jonathan Pratt, horticulturalist Russell Greenleaf, and farm manager Kevin Skvorak.
Farmers are finding new ways to sell their goods and finding new goods and ways to produce them. We need to preserve this major NYS industry. First, we need to insure enough healthy land is preserved to grow food. How much farmland do we need to feed the growing population? How many new farmers will we need? How can we ensure that local farmers can afford to keep farmland?
We will also discuss growing food for work & therapy: troubled youth, mentally challenged adults, prisoners.
We will taste and talk about new cuisine opportunities that can be enjoyed in NYS.
Cost: $35.oo per person, Slow Food Members receive a free glass of wine
