How can our food choices make the least impact on the world around us?
Cleveland Metroparks �Inviting the Planet to Dinner� series was developed to educate and increase the awareness of how our food choices affect the rest of the world, as well as our own bodies. The series is on the second Thursday of select months from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
�Inviting the Planet to Dinner� series continues with the topic of Fair Trade Coffee on April 11. Fifty-four percent of Americans drink coffee every day and each bean is imported from other countries. Local roastery Rising Star shares insights into how choosing Fair Trade Certified beans can make a huge impact on both human and environmental well being. Eco-Chef Rae Endreola will pair the presentation with fair trade tastings.
Next in the series is The Buzz on Honey, presented by naturalist and beekeeper Kathy Schmidt on May 9. Schmidt will share a fascinating and delicious trip into the world of honeybees.
The Series continues with:
� August 8 - Taste of Ohio (dinner, special $50 fee)
� September 12 - Goodness of Garlic
� October 10 - Goats are Tasty
� November 14- Lake Erie's Finest
There is a $12 fee to cover the cost of tastings for each presentation.
