Homegrown Retreat 2017

October 10, 2017 - October 11, 2017

This event is closed to public enrollment.

A private retreat of the team from Homegrown, home of “Sandwich Environmentalism”. From their website:

Sandwich Environmentalism

We’re so often asked “what’s a sustainable sandwich?” And we get it, on the surface, it’s just a sandwich! But we believe that something as simple as a sandwich can do big things in the world.

Our idea is that if we thoughtfully curate every little thing about the sandwich – where the grains for the bread come from, how the animals behind our meats and cheeses are raised, what chemicals we’re keeping off our fruits and vegetables – each sandwich will be a little bit healthier for the planet and for the people who enjoy eating them. And when you multiply that effect by all the sustainable sandwiches we sell every day, you can really start to envision the positive change we can have on the food system, even by rallying behind something as simple as a sandwich.
