Food Sustainability

Great speakers every month that provoke your mind.  This month we will be exploring and discussing Food Sustainability while learning about a couple of local sucesses.  Food sustainabiliyt is an increasingly important issue in sustainable development. 


~ Food Sustainability ~
Women’s Bean Project + Colorado Aquaponics


Women’s Bean Project will demonstrate how the model of sustainable food + social service + education provision has evolved to be one of Denver’s longest-standing sustainable food platform success stories.
 
Colorado Aquaponics, grows fresh water fish and food plants (salad and cooking greens, vegetables, culinary herbs and fruits) in a recirculating soilless system. Food grown using aquaponics and hydroponics uses only about 10 percent of the water consumed in traditional agriculture, is transported within a 10 mile radius, and provides high quality, nutritious food to people who wouldn't otherwise have access to healthy food options. Aquaponics systems can be operated in a variety of different environments and locations from schools, office parks, correctional facilities, housing and apartment buildings, retirement centers, places of worship, etc.

 

 

This is a free mothly networking forum to discuss how local universities, business, not-for-profit organizations, and governmental agencies have incorporated and defined sustainability in innovative and progressive ways. Attendance is always high and engaged. Held at the Wynkoop Brewery. You can find information on past presentations on the WC web site.

 

I hope you’ll be able to join us for these fun, informative events.Free food, good beer and stimulating conversation!
