Relocalizing Restaurants

“If we are to become native to our places, the foodshed is one way of envisioning that beloved country.”

Coming in to the foodshed, Kloppenburg et al. 1996

On Monday, February 24th, PVCF had the pleasure of hosting the first in a series of Community Conversations, in partnership with The Northern Colorado Foodshed Project. The event, Relocalizing Restaurants, was a dynamic a farm-to-table conversation with Chef Kevin Grossi, Owner of The Regional, and Ben Pfeffer, Owner of Raisin’ Roots Farm & President of the Larimer County Farmers Alliance. We discussed the relationships between restaurants and farms, introduced the Foodshed Project, and answered many community questions about why relocalizing our restaurants and growing our local food community is vital. The event sold out within just two short days, and we are so grateful for the amazing community interest in the event. We look forward to hosting more Community Conversations in the future!
