Foodshed: A Tale of Two Tomatoes

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 @ 5:00 PM-7:30 PM


Featured Speakers: Jim Jordan, Senior Coordinator, School of Professional and Continuing Studies, University of Missouri – St. Louis AND Katie Belise-Iffrig, Author, Going Green for the GENIUS

“There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.” – Aldo Leopold

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.

Foodshed is an On Science offering of the Power of Place: Sustaining our Food, Water and Urban Landscapes Series
Programs may be taken individually or as a series. Through trips and tours around town, discussions and activities, you’ll explore green ideas, ethical considerations, actions you can take, and sustainability efforts in the St. Louis region. Each program ends with an analysis in which you apply what you just learned to a current project.

Registration required. $14 per person. Enroll in all three programs in our Power of Place series for just $36 and save $2 per program. OPEN to ALL. Space is limited. Middle and high school students welcome.
