Civic Minds Creative Hearts: Local Food and Local Makers
Thursday, April 27th | 5:30-7:30PM

Inspired by the food related themes from our current exhibit 'What's For Lunch?' we will host our next Civic Minds Creative Hearts evening event in celebration of our local food systems. Join us to learn from community professionals about the broader landscape of the local food movement and meet two farmers who are cultivating a more sustainable land ethic and creating art inspired by this work. Our guest presenters include Clea Rome, Director of our local Washington State University Extension office;  Rachel Shyles, wildlife biologist and ecologist and co-owner of Wilding Farm; and Jenson, co-founder of Sisterland Farm.

In addition to the presentations, enjoy a one-night pop-up markers market of wares, provisions, and art!
