Workshops are lead by dedicated experts and are designed for everyone from agricultural professionals to the general public.
Farm to Fork Picnic
In a unique collaboration, the region's most acclaimed cooks pair with Piedmont farmers to prepare a picnic-style feast that celebrates our local foods and the people who grow and make them. Bon Appétit has called it the “country’s best all-you-can-eat feast.” The event raises money for CEFS and PLANT @ Breeze Farm Enterprise Incubator and is a partnership of CEFS, Slow Food Triangle, and Breeze Farm. For more information, and lots of pictures, see www.farmtoforknc.com. The Farm to Fork Picnic operates under the auspices of the N.C. Agricultural Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization.

Each year, CEFS hosts an annual Sustainable Agriculture Lecture to engage the public on a variety of food systems topics. Previous speakers have included Slow Food founder Carlo Petrini and Will Allen (left), the Founder and CEO of Growing Power, Inc. and a 2008 MacArthur Fellow.
