Dis-O Farm to Table Tour
Wednesday, September 14, 2022 - 11:00am to 1:00pm
Meet in person @ the Seasoned Spoon Cafe
Join the Seasoned Spoon Café and Trent Vegetable Gardens for a campus farm-to-table tour as part of Disorientation Week at Trent in collaboration with OPIRG Peterborough. The Trent Vegetable Gardens and the Seasoned Spoon Café have been partners for 15 years, working to create an accessible and sustainable local food system right here on campus. Learn about this cooperatively-run cafe and how it integrates fresh, organic food grown right on campus by students like you. Tour the café space, off-grid root cellar, rooftop garden, and field garden. We’ll discuss the work these organizations are doing to build an alternative food system at Trent and all the ways you can get involved through experiential learning, research projects, workshops, volunteering, community meals and more. Find out how you can join the food movement at Trent. Expect to taste some delicious samples and get hands-on in the garden as part of this tour! Masks are required for the indoor portions of this tour.
Registration required via Eventbrite.
