Event Notice: Alice Waters Lecture, September 27th, 2007


Tickets are on sale starting NOW!

Slow Food Charlotte and Charlotte Shout would like to invite you to join Alice Waters as she speaks out about the Edible Schoolyard and the School Lunch Initiative.

The Edible Schoolyard is a school garden program that weaves personal responsibility, community, character and curriculum into the everyday fabric of student life. These welcomed classroom attributes were then built into the School Lunch Initiative which harvests the bounty of the student gardens to provide healthy and delicious lunches within the schools.

We hope that you can attend the Alice Waters lecture on September 27, 2007.

There are two classes of tickets available; educator $10 and general public $20. If you make your living as an educator please take advantage of the savings, if not, please help us to continue to bring interesting speakers to Charlotte.

Tickets are available here, http://shop.slowfoodcharlotte.org/

Directions, parking and hotel information will be mailed to you with the tickets and will be available online in the next couple of weeks here at slowfoodcharlotte.org.

We plan to sell some tickets at area Farmer's Markets beginning August 25, 2007.
