Food glorious food! Focus on local foods and gardens

Check out Monday’s presentations featuring Prairie Roots local food market, incredible local chefs and their association, and a possible Japanese Garden and Conservatory.

At 8:35 we’ll hear from Kaye Kirsch and the Prairie Roots Food Coop.

Their goal is to open a retail food co-op in the Red River Valley that will be a one-stop shop for all your natural, organic and local food and product needs.

They’re structured as a co-op, which means that members are the owners of the grocery store and they are accountable to them.

9:00 a.m. Jackie Williams of the Northern Plains Botanic Garden Society.  Jackie will share about projects they’re working on including; a beautiful Japanese Garden (Photo is of the Huntington Garden in Pasadena), a fruit tree forest, and a living conservatory

At 9:25 Chef Watson of Mezzaluna and leaders of The Red River Valley Chef’s Association will share about their local chapter of The American Culinary Federation founded in Fargo, North Dakota and how they work with local growers for more fresh, local foods in their recipes.

9:45 a.m. – 10:05 a.m. Questions from the audience for the presenters.

The program is open to the public and will be broadcast live on Fargo cable access channel 12. Invite your friends and hope to see you there!
