Primary tabs

Middle Tennessee farmland once fed Nashville, and it will again.  As a peak year-end event fostering this change, the Tennessee Local Food Summit December 6-8, 2013 features Nashville’s best chefs offering delicious locally-grown organic meals during a full day of educational workshops, networking and the celebration of another great growing season. Please invite your friends to the Facebook event or download and email the event poster.

The 3rd annual summit will be hosted by Trevecca Nazarene University on Saturday, December 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with workshops on backyard gardening, permaculture, urban homesteading, the local food economy, the food-health connection, and environmental and social justice issues. The day’s events will include a locally-grown chef-made lunch and a farmers and chefs auction. See tnlocalfood.com/schedule for more details.

Kicking off the conference will be a reception Friday, December 6 at 6:00 p.m. at Sloco. Following the workshops on Saturday night from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m., there will be a locally-grown chef-made dinner at Corsair Distillery with music by indie rocker Will Kimbrough and friends.

At 10 a.m, on Sunday, December 8, there will be a tour of Trevecca Urban Farm aquaponics operation with a bus to Delvin Farms for a tour of their greenhouses at noon.
