Podcast: What’s Up Bainbridge:
Building Sustainable Food Systems Dec. 11 at Bainbridge Library
Join Jill Bamburg, President and Co-Founder of Pinchot University (formerly Bainbridge Graduate Institute) and BCB host Christina Hulet as they discuss this month’s Building a Sustainable Economy lecture at the Bainbridge Public Library.
Recently consumer awareness, market shifts, and weather conditions have encouraged corporations to approach the food supply chain with more long-term and inclusive strategies.
Here to speak on these strategies will be guest speakers Eric Eddings, President and CEO at Oregon Ice Cream, and Sarah Beaubien, Director of Sustainability and Corporate Stewardship at Tillamook County Creamery Association. The two will be discussing sustainability practices in the food industry, including organic markets, fair trade, clean technology initiatives and more.
The BASE Lecture Series is developed in partnership with several local organizations, including the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce, Sustainable Bainbridge, Yes Magazine, Kitsap Regional Library and the Bainbridge Public Library.
