Food For Thought: Living the Locavore Life

Description

URBAN HARVEST CONTINUES “FOOD FOR THOUGHT” SERIES
January 20: Living the Locavore Life

WHAT: Urban Harvest continues its Food For Thought series, a new, thought provoking cycle of panel discussions on today’s hot topics that support growing and eating locally. The panels are lead by local and regional experts, and are scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month.

The third panel discussion will be January 20: Living the Locavore Life. The term “locavore” was coined by Jessica Prentice to describe and promote the practice of eating a diet consisting of food harvested from within an area most commonly bound by a 100-mile radius. Come explore creative ideas for growing your own food, sourcing fresh local food and promoting the development of local food systems. Our expert panel will include Nell Wheeler, community farmer with Vegetable Matters who will discuss her personal experiences with urban homesteading and growing much of her own food; Teresa Byrne-Dodge, publisher/editor of My Table ~ Houston’s Dining Magazine specializing in celebrating local food endeavors; Executive Chef John Sheely of Mockingbird Bistro Wine Bar; community farmer Joe Icet, the inspiration behind the urban farm Last Organic Outpost; and Randy Evans, Executive Chef of Haven and an Urban Harvest certified organic specialist.

This panel session will be emceed by Texas Agrilife Extension Service WaterSmart Program Coordinator Chris LaChance and moderated by Urban Harvest Executive Director Mark Bowen.

Urban Harvest inspires and empowers people of diverse backgrounds to grow healthy foods, in the process enriching the city we call home. With three hard-working programs at its core – Community Gardens, Education and Urban Harvest Farmers Market – Urban Harvest
supports a network of gardens, farms and orchards in the greater Houston area. Food For Thought is the perfect complement to further Urban Harvest’s core mission.

WHEN: 7 to 8:45 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month

FORMAT: 7-7: 15 pm social ▪ 7:15-8:15 pm moderated panel discussion ▪ 8:15-8:45 pm Q&A
