Farm-Based Series Invites Friends and Neighbors for Inspirational Agricultural Discussions
Farm to Fork Pizza will host monthly talks about farm-related issues
Mondovi’s Farm to Fork Pizza at Dancing Yarrow is excited to introduce its latest event series, Campfire Conversations. Held in partnership with the Eau Claire County Farmers Union on the second Sunday of every month, the evenings bring together people interested in exploring the local food movement, land regeneration, health, healing, and more.
Beginning in June, two to three local experts will speak about their passions and projects before opening up the conversation for wider discussion. Yoga instructors, beekeepers, and farm owners Maria Bamonti and Tommy Folden were inspired by the connections they saw being made at the pizza nights they hosted last summer.
“Until we are all talking about sustainability and regenerative living, there isn’t enough of us talking about it.” –Maria Bamonti, Farm to Fork Pizza at Dancing Yarrow
“Until we are all talking about sustainability and regenerative living, there isn’t enough of us talking about it,” Bamonti said.
“Plus, farming can be lonely,” she continued. “There is always so much that comes up in a day and a season, so to have others to talk things through with and ask questions of is a huge opportunity to learn and build.”
Campfire Conversations are an important part of the duo’s work to build a vibrant local food system that strengthens connections, helping to improve understanding of the links between food, the environment, and our health.
Campfire Conversations run from 6-8pm on the second Sunday of every month from June to October, and are free to attend. Dancing Yarrow’s bar will be open to serve drinks and light snacks. Farm to Fork pizza nights are 5-9pm every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday through Sept. 23. Learn more at facebook.com/dancingyarrow.
