Hear from Mary Collins and Tami Purdue on how to cultivate and maintain health through eating locally grown food.

About this Event

Most of us want all kinds of health for our own body, for our children and family, and for our friends and our community. One simple and important way is to consume food that is grown locally with love and care on healthy soil. Science and medicine are discovering and publishing that the microbiome of our gut and our environment are key to our mutual health.

Fortunately, there are convenient and affordable ways to be part of a sustainable, local food system. Did you know that local food subscriptions are available and can be delivered or picked up weekly? When you support local growers and health educators, you put your money directly into the local economy. Additionally since this food is not shipped long distance or held in storage before it gets to you, it is very fresh and reduces fuel costs and pollution. That’s a win-win-win for your health, our environment, and our economy!.

Come to Sweet Peas Urban Gardens to hear from Mary Collins and Tami Purdue about how to achieve all kinds of health through eating local food. Mary has used local food to support her health since her multiple sclerosis (MS) diagnosis at age 36 in 1995. Tami, farmer and urban food collaborator who is the founder and owner of Sweet Peas, will also share her experiences. Healthy and delicious food will be provided, sufficient for a lunch or supper, so you can taste and learn about creative and fun ways to use local, in-season food!

Suggested contribution is $10 per person, but no one will be turned away.

Sweet Peas Urban Gardens is an urban farm at the forefront of innovative climate resilient modes of vertical indoor agriculture. We produce organic microgreens, baby leafy greens, edible flowers and mushrooms in compact urban and peri-urban indoor spaces. Owned and operated by women and minorities, the Business recognizes that accelerating forces of climate change and environmental costs of industrial farming have diminished the extent and productivity of arable land, and pose unprecedented environmental, economic and health risks. Globalization and delocalization of existing food supply chains are unable to adequately respond to concerns about the net carbon footprint, diminishing nutrition, and health safety concerns of industrially produced food. The social, environmental and economic costs of industrial farming are borne by taxpayers and consumers, making existing food systems unsustainable. Increasing public awareness of these problems has dramatically increased demand for foods produced and distributed by alternative food systems. Sweet Peas is proud to partner with the Well Fed Community Garden in 2020 in an effort to continue the mission of growing organic fruites and vegetables for our neighbors and the Raleigh community at large.
