Living Green Expo



Living Green Expo

takes place this weekend in the Grandstand Building at the

Minnesota State Fairgrounds

, and it features all sorts of of food-focused booths, workshops, and demos--everything from local

natural food co-ops

to vegetable gardening and

worm composting.

Here are a few highlights:

Cooking demonstrations: Rick Kimmes (Oceanaire) cooks Wisconsin trout, Mike Phillips (The Craftsman) makes his own cured meats, and JD Fratzke (The Strip Club) how to prepare meat from pasture-raised animals.

Workshops: An introduction to beekeeping with a U of M bee lab scientist, and a discussion of the farm bill's impact on farming practices and the environment led by ag policy professionals.

If you haven’t signed up for a CSA yet, you can meet dozens of local farmers in the Community Food and Farm area.
