Rebuilding Our Local Food Economy: A Conversation with Carolina Farm Trust
Ever wonder about the illusion of abundance in our grocery stores or the state of our local food systems? How about the importance of soil health or the connection between farms and the culinary world? Let's unpack these and many more in our enlightening conversation with Zach Wyatt and Michael Bowling of Carolina Farm Trust. This dynamic duo is on a mission to rebuild regional food systems, through urban farms, a farm apprentice program, a Food is Health program, and a new distribution facility. They'll reveal why our food systems are at breaking point, and how we can shift our perspective from an illusion of abundance to a more realistic, sustainable approach.
But we're not stopping there. Carolina Farm Trust is set to co-host an upcoming soil health conference with a host of exciting associated events. Get a sneak peek at what to expect, from an urban farm dinner to the Carolina Jubilee music festival. Plus, discover how Zach and Michael are bridging the gap between restaurants, culinary programs, and farmers to create immersive dinner experiences. These events aren't just about great food and music, they're about igniting conversations that matter around our food system. So, join us as we navigate the journey from farm to fork, and learn how we can all play a role in supporting our local food economy.
