Event Curation Services
We offer business, non-profits, clubs, and associations a convenient and easy way to create an event that showcases local and sustainable food. We curate events to suit the host site and the organizer’s mission. Our largest and most recent curated event to date was the Food & Farm Expo on March 9, 2014 at Audubon Greenwich that featured 20 exhibitors in the local, artisan foods marketplace. Over 400 attendees visited with the exhibitors to learn about their products and services and sample and purchase their foods. Attendance was strong at homesteading talks given by area experts and tasting workshops led by artisan food professionals. Click here to learn more about this event.
