Is Sustainable Attainable? A Bay Area Conversation

by Tom Avila

September 9, 2011

On Saturday, September 17 at 4:30 p.m., Greenpeace will be bringing together a diverse group of individuals at San Francisco’s Credo restaurant to ask them, “Is Sustainable Attainable?”

How diverse?

We’ve invited a James Beard award-winning food writer, a Greenpeace forest defender, a Food Forward filmmaker, a Real food champion, a Mindful investment expert, a member of the eco-literati and a nightlife powerhouse who’s been referred to as a “creative cyclone”.

And we want to add your voice to the mix.

Is Sustainable Attainable? will be a spirited conversation about the food we eat, how it influences our communities and how it impacts our environment. Whether you live for local or fill up in the freezer aisle, there’s a place at our table for you. All you need is an appetite for discovery.
