United States Studies and the Program on America and the Global Economy
of the Woodrow Wilson Center and the Chesapeake Bay Trust
invite you to a conference:
Rebuilding the American Economy—
One Heirloom Tomato at a Time
The food system of the United States is currently witnessing a remarkable shift, with the revival of small farms and artisanal producers working with restaurants, institutional food services, and retail outlets to make locally-sourced, sustainably-produced food more widely available. This shift has both stimulated and is now responding to a growing demand from “locavore,” health-conscious consumers in ways that are affecting America’s economy as well as its eating habits and well-being. Join us for a day-long conference to explore this conjuncture.
Friday, March 4, 2011, 8:45 a.m.
All panels will be held in the 6th Floor Auditorium
Woodrow Wilson Center, 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20004–3027
