"The City That Saved Itself Through Food Innovations"

When: Tue., Feb. 23, 7 p.m. 2016

Colorado hosts groups like the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association, boasts hundreds of CSAs, scores of farmers markets, food banks and food rescue groups, and many concerned chefs and agri-activists. We do pretty good, but we hold huge potential to do better. One place we can learn from is Tucson, Arizona, dubbed the "City of Gastronomy" in 2015 by UNESCO. This evening, the University of Arizona's Gary Paul Nabhan will present "The City that Saved Itself Through Food Innovations, from Seed Libraries to Local Sourcing" in CC's Gates Common Room, where he'll discuss the need for localizing food economies, even in challenging, hot, dry climates. 7 p.m., 1025 N. Cascade Ave., free, coloradocollege.edu. — Matthew Schniper
