Olympia Friends Meeting House
3201 Boston Harbor Rd NE, Olympia
The Food and Agriculture Action Group is hosting this Potluck Dinner, and invites you to bring your favorite dish made from ingredients typically found as leftovers. Speakers will talk about regenerative agriculture, and food waste and climate. Please RSVP to lynn@Thurstonclimateaction.org. Facebook event.
This is also a fundraiser, and thus a great way for you to support TCAT. No one will pester you for money at the event. Those who make a dish get in for just $5, and those of you who are not cooks are free to come and enjoy, but you will pay $20 towards our fundraiser.
There will be a contest and prize for the best recipe made with leftovers, so bring your recipe to put by your dish.. Click here for potluck contest rules.
There are two categories for potluck dishes:
- Left overs category where you use an ingredient that is often a left over in the fridge (but is not for this event).
- Less commonly used category – this is things like broccoli stalks, carrot tops, etc. Please know you can also GLEAN for this category. Lynn will be making a cobbler out of the over abundance of Asian Pears on her tree that otherwise would have gone to waste. (Remember this is a “No Wasted Food” potluck).
Over dinner we will enjoy both time to talk and also a great panel explaining why Regenerative Agriculture is an important answer to the climate crisis.
Panel: What is Regenerative Agriculture?
- Pat Rasmussen
- Joel Hanson
- Discussion Host: Lynn Fitz-Hugh
Did you know that preventing food waste and regenerative agriculture are solutions number 3 and number 11 in Drawdown, a well-researched list of a hundred solutions to climate change?
Did you know that Regenerative Agriculture is a way of farming which could sequester more than 100% of the current agriculture greenhouse gas emissions and thus propel us to below a degree temperature increase? It could be a game changer in the climate fight. Come learn how it is different from industrial agriculture and what it involves and how you can be a consumer of this kind of product. Learn from the panel how we can transform the health of the food we produce and the planet by converting to Regenerative Agriculture.
Please RSVP so we know how many to feed to lynn@Thurstonclimateaction.org
