Know where your food has come from
through knowing those who produced it for you… Know where your food has come from
by the very way it tastes:
its freshness telling you
how far it may have traveled
so that you can stand up for the land
that has offered it to you.
– Gary Nabhan, A Terroir-ist’s Manifesto for Eating in Place

Setting the Table for a Foodshed Series This foodshed to fork dinner is part of a series of seasonal dinners aimed at bring people together around the wild and cultivated food traditions of our Pacific Northwest bioregion, some call Salmon Nation, and eating what we most need to learn.
EduCulture is partnering with The Food Shed to help shape and deliver a menu built on what is seasonal and regional, all sourced locally, fairly and sustainably. In the spirit of creating convivia, each dinner will focus on a foodshed theme and will feature local producers, storytellers, or artists who will feed us with words, music, and ideas.
This program is part of EduCulture’s effort to respond to a call for community based edible experiences grounded in tasting what we most need to learn about our local and regional foodshed.
About The Food Shed The Food Shed’s objective is to cultivate conscious consumption by advocating local and sustainable food sources and cycles. They strive to be stewards of our own foodshed by providing local food experiences, enriching relationships between micro-producers, growers and local consumers, and modeling a “cradle to cradle” food hub that is centered in a deep local economy. The Food Shed makes sure every step along the food chain, from production to recycling, works in a cyclical and durable progression. We are working to pioneer new ways of collaboration and food interdependence, which in turn encourages farm literacy and folk culture and micro economic viability from the root of the community.
