Supporter ticket: Keynote, Bison Fabrication and Tasting (Friday 6/20 4:00-9:30pm, Auraria Higher Education Center)
We are pleased to announce the keynote speaker for Slow Meat, Allan Savory, a Zimbabwean biologist, farmer, soldier, exile, environmentalist, and winner of the 2003 Banksia International Award and the 2010 Buckminster Fuller Challenge. He is the originator of holistic management. Savory will deliver his keynote address at 5:00 PM on Friday, June 20, 2014. Following the keynote, we will gather for a celebration of delicious food and community that reflect Slow Meat's goal of better meat, less. We will honor Colorado bison with a fabrication artfully presented by local butchers, explore tasting stations featuring food prepared by local and national chefs, and enjoy cocktails, beer, wine and great conversation. We are grateful to the Savory Institute for Allan Savory's availability to kick-off this gathering with his provocative analysis and recommendations for more animals on the land, fewer animals in industrial confinement.
$100.00 $5.99
