Conventionally grown tomatoes may travel more than 1,100 miles to get to your plate. Join us at Schafly Bottleworks on Farmers Market Day as we explore how food is grown, distributed and sold. We’ll tour Schafly’s Organic Garden and have dinner (food and beverage costs not included) at the Bottleworks where you can sample a dish prepared from the garden. When it comes to eating food that is good for you and for the planet, the best advice is to consider the source.

We’ll have the opportunity to discover the Watershed Cairns exhibit through the eyes of its co-creator, Libby Reuter. Lecture and tour at Missouri History Museum.
