Aug 29: Rachel's Sustainable Feast

The fourth annual Rachel's Sustainable Feast moves to the Rachel Carson Bridge in Pittsburgh. Why? Because we ran out of space outside Rachel's home in Springdale!!

The best of the region's hottest chefs who support local sustainable farmers, our favorite local farmers' markets, our good friends who are eco-friendly vendors and groups who work to protect our land, water and air, and more ways to learn about sustainable living in one of this country's fastest-growing green marketplaces - southwestern Pennsylvania!

Some of these great people you've met before, others you haven't. One of the chefs who signed up right away is Kevin Sousa of Salt of the Earth. He's one of the original locavore chefs in Pittsburgh and an all-round great guy!

Also, Keith Fuller of Six Penn Kitchen, Steve Salvi of Fede Pasta, Penn's Corner Farm Alliance, Sonoma Grille and/orSeviche are on board! Check our Web site regularly to see who else will be there.

Turner Dairy Farms will be there also. Turner Dairy Farms has been a fixture of the local agriculture scene since the company was founded in 1930. They are proud to offer the highest quality "rBGH free" milk from 50 local family dairy farms, all located within 70 miles of their processing facility. From local farms to local families for 80 years!

Our friends from Slow Food Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania Association of Sustainable Agriculture, Whole Foods Market andEat 'N Park Hospitality Group who help us organize this event will be there also.

So get your appetite going, and get registered today, online. There's an earlybird price special of $7 if you register before the end of July. As always the little ones (5 and under) get in free.

12-5 p.m. on the Rachel Carson Bridge.
