TABLE TALK: Grayson Bass on Farm to Family

February 4, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Trends, Supply, and The New Future

Food and Story are the most powerful tools we have to change the world. Climate change demands an unprecedented transformation in how we eat, what we eat, and our understanding of this very thing that unites all people. Join teacher, consultant and inventor Grayson Bass for a unique perspective on food, farming, climate and how we connect as people in the 21st century.

Grayson is one of the founders of D.I.G. Community Lab, whose goal is to provide resources that will help improve the lives of farmers, access to capital, access to technology, and build resilience into the global food supply chain. The Community Lab is a working demonstration farm where farmers, students, and researchers from all over the world can learn how to integrate their skills with new technologies, gain access to tools and resources to increase productivity in farming while mitigating challenges related to climate adaptation.
