Challenges and Opportunities in Building a Regional Food System in Truckee-Tahoe

Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a network of technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee area, is pleased to welcome Susie Sutphin to present: “Challenges and Opportunities in Building a Regional Food System.”

Living in the non-agricultural “food desert” of the high alpine Truckee-Tahoe environment presents challenges in food security, lends itself to a lack of sustainably grown food, and can leave us disconnected from our food-abundant neighbors. Not every community can grow their own food, but we can take responsibility for how our regionally-grown food is sourced and distributed.

Susie Sutphin, Executive Director of the non-profit Tahoe Food Hub and a 15-year Truckee resident, will discuss how the Tahoe Food Hub works to aggregate sustainably-produced food sourced from within 100 miles, while ensuring equal food access and exploring ways to grow food locally using 4-season growing techniques.

She’ll discuss the challenges and opportunities in creating this grassroots effort that aims to galvanize our community to build a regional, sustainable and equitable food system.

You can learn more about the Tahoe Food Hub here: http://www.tahoefoodhub.org/

The meeting will be on Monday, April 13th, 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. A $5 fee includes pizza and salad. Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking with other technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee region.

This month’s event is sponsored by New Leaders, Clear Capital and Your Truckee Office.

You can find us on LinkedIn and Facebook and at TahoeSiliconMountain.com or sign up for email meeting announcements here: http://bit.ly/14XGofL.

  3. 3. With regenerative farming, we're building in the soil mychorrhiza fungi. It sits down there in the soil and holds carbon for a long, long time. When you pour fertilizer down there, you kill the fungi and it volatizes into the atmosphere into carbon dioxide. Agriculture as we now practice it is one of the biggest contributors to global warming, but it could be one of the biggest mitigators.
  4. 4. I love food for what it provides my body, my community and my environment. If we all revered food in this way, everyone would have foodlust.
