Growing Roots for Healthy Communities -- this year, bringing a cultural perspective to Pittsburgh's preeminent local food conference.
With the theme Growing Roots for Healthy Communities, it’s all about celebrating the diversity of farming and traditional cooking methods that make eating local fun, educational and enriching.
The conference provides consumers with two days of networking and educational opportunities. Seasonal cooking demonstrations, gardening, and information about the nutritional value of local food are presented by local experts.
Meet with other Locavores to discuss ideas about where their food comes from and where to find businesses and organizations who can provide them with healthy food and healthy lifestyle choices.
10 a.m. - 5 p.m. both days; additional events before and after each day. At the David Lawrence Convention Center downtown. Online tickets here, more information here. There's also a Facebook event, in case you want to check in with friends!
