Let’s transform the connection we have with our food and its origins through the soil, nutrition, and how we process and consume it. Part of our mission is to enliven the attention and process of eating and its wide impact on our environment. Humans can be a positive influence on the ecosystem. We are merging our passions in this Soil to Sustenance workshop to encourage a regenerative system by minding your plate. Each bite of food has a story.

The Soil to Sustenance, Mind Your Plate event is providing wholistic nutrition, ecological farming, and mindfulness education to the Pittsburgh area community.
