of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
invite you to a conference
Reviving the American Economy—One Heirloom Tomato at a Time
The food system of the United States is currently witnessing a remarkable shift, with the revival of small farms and artisanal producers working with restaurants, institutional food services, and retail outlets to make locally-sourced, sustainably-produced food more widely available. This shift has both stimulated and is now responding to a growing demand from “locovore,” health-conscious consumers in ways that are affecting America’s economy as well as its eating habits and well-being. Join us for a day-long conference to explore this conjuncture.
Flom Auditorium, Woodrow Wilson Center
Friday, March 4, 2011, 8:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
