Art & the Environment Panel
Sow, Harvest, and Eat: Seattle Grows Sustainable Agriculture
April 4, 2013
Join us for the next panel discussion in the Art & the Environment series, presented in close collaboration with the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs and Seattle Tilth. Seattle has earned a reputation for a burgeoning horticultural scene, thriving farmers markets, and excellent local food. This conversation brings together figures working across the landscape of agriculture and food in and around Seattle. They will discuss how their work fosters community, advances environmental justice, helps local residents forge connections to our regional environment and history, and uses art and design to create ties between people and food. Collectively, their work is yielding a city that supports both ecological and community sustainability.Opening Remarks Andrea Platt Dwyer, Executive Director, Seattle Tilth ModeratorRandy Engstrom, Interim Director, Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs PanelistsNicole Kistler, interdisciplinary artist and Seattle's current Urban Farming Artist-in-ResidenceCristina Orb�, Program Manager and Dining Room Coordinator for FEEST (Food Empowerment Education and Sustainability Team)Valerie Segrest, Native Foods Educator and Community NutritionistRobert Servine, Program Manager, Seattle Youth Garden Works (a Seattle Tilth program)Free but registration is required.
