I was pleased to discover this week that Santa Fe is host to two very exciting food related events in the next six weeks. First, Edible Communities is hosting it’s first annual Edible Institute here on January 28th!
For those of you unfamiliar with the publication, Edible Communities focuses on local, seasonal food from coast to coast. Each separate publication highlights local fare and food news. To find a publication in your area, go to this website and check out the offerings. Publications are listed alphabetically.
The Edible Institute will be a gathering of writers, eaters, and locavores coming together for a discussion on a variety of topics affecting local, sustainable agriculture.
Additionally, the Santa Fe Alliance is hosting a Local Food Growers and Buyers Expo in the beginning of February. This will be an opportunity for these two sides of sustainability to connect with one another and learn how to get locally grown sustainable foods on the tables and in the kitchens of local food businesses.
I will definitely be attending the Edible Institute and I am hoping to be able to make the Santa Fe Alliance Expo as well, although this is primarily for people in the “biz”…not sure my dairy goats really count!
In either case, it is just fabulous to be living in a place that hosts these kinds of events! Coming on the heels of the last year’s Slow Money conference, it is definitely a joy to live in the city dipherent!
This post has been my weekly contribution to Real Food Wednesday, hosted by Kelly the Kitchen Kop.
