Farm to Table Movement lecture at Science Museum
Do you really know where your dinner came from?
- Is it better to buy local or organic?
- Is family farming still viable?
Unlike mass produced fruits and vegetables you find in most supermarkets, those sourced from "mom and pop" farms are harvested at the peak of ripeness, never altered for prolonged storage via hot water treatment, irradiation, or gassing. Eating local also reduces the carbon footprint that most produce creates en route to it's final destination. By taking a seasonal approach to eating we can ensure that all of our produce retains all of the nutritional value and flavor that is often lost through processing and storage.
Seasons Farm Fresh believes in the concept of farm to table and brings together produce from 65 local partner farms. They work exclusively with small, family run farms to ensure that every piece of produce they handle was grown sustainably and harvested fresh.
Ever since childhood Nicholas Bernal, shown here, has had a passion for nature. What started as an after school hobby in selling lychees roadside across Miami has blossomed into a viable business sharing the bounty of South Florida with all socio-economic classes. Using his extensive training in the biological sciences, Nicholas takes pride in working with the best farmers to constantly improve crop quality while enhancing the surrounding ecosystem.
This talk will discuss the farm to table movement in South Florida, and how to provide the best food for you and your family.
Members free, public $5 donation, the presentation starts at 7:30 pm.
The Patricia and Philip Frost Science Museum is at 3280 S. Miami Avenue.
