You’re Invited: Southern KY Food Day 2012

There’s a great event coming up at WKU on October 24th, and I wanted you to be the first to know about it! Food Day is going to be a day-long conference that will be ideally suited for farmers, foodies, consumers, gardeners… anyone with an interest in food (which should be all of us).

There are three ways you can participate in Food Day at WKU:

  • Tickets are only $10 a piece for the conference, which includes a local lunch catered by area chefs. (There are also hands-on workshops available for an additional fee, including microprocessing, rain barrels, etc.)
  • Come to the Meet Your Farmer Hayride at WKU on Wednesday night: FREE.
  • Enjoy a delicious local meal at the Farm Elegant Dinner on Wednesday night: $35.
Registration is available at the Community Farmers Market website.
I would love for you to join me at this event—I’ll have a table set up at the Food Day Expo just so I can chat with you! (Please introduce yourself and let me know you’re a reader!) The awesome folks organizing this event have offered to give away a set of conference tickets to a reader, so one of you can come and bring a friend. (Farm Elegant dinner tickets would need to be purchased separately if you plan on staying for that.)
I look forward to meeting you on the 24th. It will be an informative time for those of us concerned with promoting local food and community in the Bluegrass. To enter to win your Food Day tickets, leave a comment on this post. Please help us spread the word about this event on Facebook and Twitter, too.

Winner will be selected on October 16th. UPDATE: Lori Monroe is the winner of the Food Day tickets! Comments have now been closed.

Disclosure: In accordance with FTC guidelines, I should tell you that Sustainable Kentucky received tickets to the Farm Elegant dinner in exchange for my promotion of Food Day that I would have promoted anyway! Thanks to the organizers of this event for making my attendance possible.

    I look forward to attending a pallet gardening workshop. With limited yard space this sounds like an intriguing and sustainable option for a home gardener.
