Town Talk for Feb. 12
You’re invited to view TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” today from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Colorado Mountain College in Edwards, Room 204. The one-day event will highlight several aspects of the sustainable food movement and the work being done to shift our food system from industrially based agriculture to one in which healthy, nutritious food is accessible to all. Speakers with various backgrounds in food and farming will share their insights and expertise. Relevant clips from the TED conference will be shown. And, hopefully, we’ll have a few surprises during the day. A highlight of all TED and TEDx events is the ample time given for attendees to meet one another and look for new synergies and new ideas to help bolster the sustainable food movement.
Stay all day, or come by for just a part or simply to meet people with an interest in creating a more sustainable food system. From 8:30 to 10:15 a.m., speakers will provide a historical background of factors influencing our food system. From 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., speakers will focus on the current state of our food system, and then from 2 to 4 p.m., the future of our food system will be addressed.
