Join Chow Chow for a journey of agricultural rediscovery and culinary adventure! Based in Asheville, NC, the Utopian Seed Project is a hands-in-the-earth nonprofit committed to trialing crops and varieties in the Southeast to support diversity in food and farming. Chris Smith, Executive Director for Utopian Seed Project will share the organization's vision to create an engaged network of growers, gardeners, farmers, foodies, cooks and chefs to help celebrate crop diversity. Over a shared meal showcasing rare and heirloom crops being grown by the Project, we will discuss an overarching vision to create food security in the face of climate change through diverse and regenerative agriculture.
