Great news! The 2nd Annual Roots Conference hosted by everyone’s favorite Farmer Lee Jones of The Chef’s Garden, Inc. is taking place on October 19-20, 2014 at The Culinary Vegetable Institute in Milan, Ohio, and we’re delighted to be the conference’s PR representative. How exciting!
This year’s Roots Conference theme is “Connect and Unite Through Food” and will feature educational discussions that provide insight into relevant industry issues and inspire a global conversation about key food topics.
Led by emcee Ted Allen and keynote speaker Jose Andres, Conference Topics include: Waste Not, Want Not: How to Combat Food Waste & Obesity; Vegetables: Their Power to Change the World; The New Definition of Local; and Crowd Dining: Funding a Restaurant Without Investors, with Kevin Sousa and me as the moderator.
The Chef’s Garden, Inc., a small farm in Huron, Ohio, best known for its amazing specialty vegetables and microgreens, grows and innovates as a partnership between chefs and farmers.
Jones believes that Roots 2014 “will explore new ways that chefs can make a positive difference in the world.”
We are honored to be involved in this exciting conference and working with Jones and his team.
See you on the farm!
