This Saturday, TedXManhattan is hosting an all-day event—with a long list of expert speakers—that will address the many ways we think about, and consume, our food.
“Changing the Way We Eat’s” menu is a long, varied one: The Natural Gourmet Institute’s Anne Marie Colbin on how to think about food, Back Forty’s Peter Hoffman on energy and agriculture and dessert, and Stonyfield Farm’s Gary Hirshberg on the science of GMOs. And if you’re still hungry, the White House pastry chef will be there serving up something called “food physics.”
“Each participant joins us with various backgrounds in food and farming and will share their insights and expertise on the sustainable food movement. Our goal is to curate a conference that is focused on shifting the United States food system to one that is healthy and accessible to all,” Diane Hatz, co-Founder and director of the sponsoring organization, The Glynwood Institute for Sustainable Food and Farming, said in a press release.
The in-person event has been sold out for more than a month, but you can watch the event online starting at 10:30 a.m. or find a viewing party near you, like this one at The Battery Conservancy in lower Manhattan. We suggest munching on organic, sustainable popcorn while you watch.
