Tucson is not prepared for Climate Change, Mega-droughts, and much more. It will take a strong community where we know our neighbors and pull together to deal with what’s ahead. But many solutions exist at the local level, and the place to start is a good meal with friends and neighbors.
We know already that what we’re doing here is special: It grows (no pun intended) out of the 4,000-plus history of agriculture in our region, and we can use this local food scene to build community, build our local economy, and build a resilient future for our region. A great place to start to ensure a resilient Tucson is with a strong and resilient local food system.
Come to the June Sustainable Tucson meeting – a potluck dinner and discussion about Building Community thru Food. Find out about the new Food Resilience Network and how you can help build a healthy community in your beautiful, safe and abundant neighborhood.
This Tuesday, we will get together at the Ward 6 office (3202 E 1st St) to share a meal of family favorites and seasonal local food. And to discuss what would persuade you to want to get together with many of your neighbors to share food and fun, and build a stronger community where you live.
Bring a dish you can share with about a half dozen people. If possible, please try to feature one or more local ingredients. You can find a wide variety of delicious, seasonal local foods we grow right here in Southern Arizona at local Farmers Markets . And of course, favorite family traditions are welcome.
So regardless of your food tradition, come for the good food and community. At the
Sustainable Tucson Summer Potluck 2018
Program/potluck starts at 6:00. Doors open at 5:30. See you on the 12th.
P.S. – Help us keep plastic and similar products out of the local landfill — If you can, please bring your own plate, utensils, cup or glass. If you can’t (or forget), we’ll have all these supplies available, but we’re hoping to keep our trash footprint as limited as possible.
P.P.S. Space is limited, so if you use Facebook, please let us know you plan to attend thru this FB event link.
