As many events do, disposable plates and such were used to serve 175 meals.  Members of Conservers approached the planning committee and asked if we could help plan next years event with a goal to make it a zero-waste event.  They said yes!

Use Food Scraps Symposium planning underway

 The Food Scrap Symposium is a series of community gatherings of study, conversation and local action on March 28, 29 & 30, 2019. Made possible by the following community members: Moving to Conservers, Just Ripe Farms, Oskar Blues Brewery, Transylvania County Solid Waste Authority, & The Hunger Coalition of Transylvania County. The mission of the Use Food Scraps Symposium is to connect food scrap producers with those who can use food scraps and identify associated entrepreneurial opportunities. Food scraps are a resource many in our community can use to feed livestock and produce soil.  Currently there are few opportunities for producers and consumers of food scraps to connect.  Our goal is to help foster those connections. All are welcome to be a part of the event.  We look forward to learning and taking action together.
