Join us for “Behind ‘Farm to Table': The Labor of Farming,” our final multidisciplinary panel discussion of 2017 addressing the challenges of farming, including attracting a younger generation. With more farms per capita than any other county in the United States, San Diego must lead the way for farmer welfare and well-being.
Panelists at this time include (with more to come):
- Eric Larson: Executive Director of the San Diego County Farm Bureau
- Mike Ground: Executive Chef of the Patio Group
- Al Stehly: Farmer, Wine Grower, Consultant
The panel will take place at Kitchens for Good, which rescues surplus and cosmetically imperfect food from wholesalers and farmers and engages students in a culinary apprenticeship program to transform these ingredients into nutritious meals for hungry families.
In addition, financial resources for farmers will be presented.
6 – 6:30pm: A free buffet of organic farm fare
6:30 – 8pm: Live panel discussion
