World on Your Place Food and Sustainable Living Conference, Octboer 6 - 7, Daeme

Description: TIME: 5:00 pm

LOCATION: Daemen College

4380 Main St., Amherst, NY, 14226, North Towns

Friday evening will feature the documentary “Cesar Chavez,” followed by Q&A with Arturo Rodriguez, current president of the Farm Workers Union and the son-in-law of Cesar Chavez. Saturday will once again feature two speakers: Arturo Rodriguez in the morning and Linda Black Elk, ethnobotanist and restoration ecologist, in the afternoon, as well as multiple workshops, vendors, informational tables and entertainment.

Daemen’s Hallmark chef & sous chefs will prepare a locally grown, organic, vegetarian lunch. Produce is donated by our local organic farmers and each year the cafeteria chef & staff comes up with a spectacular lunch! A true culinary delight!

The event will culminate with a closing celebration with music, cider and possibly a glass of wine. A great time to relax with friends, network, or check out vendors & informational tables (get a head start on some holiday shopping!), raffle baskets, seed exchange & door prize.

Ticket prices remain the same as last year: $10 – $35 (students pre-registered & with ID are free). Includes all meals. Financial assistance is available.
