In partnership with the Harrison Center, Big Green presents FoodCon 9 on Friday, August 2 from 6 to 9pm. Since its inception in 2010, FoodCon has sought to shine a light on the art and culture of food in Indiana by gathering enthusiasts and experts from aquaponics to urban homesteading. This year’s FoodCon is no exception and will feature booths in the Harrison Center gym and courtyard, covering a broad range of interests including beekeeping, cheese making, oil pulling, restaurant composting and more. A variety of food trucks will be on site as well providing many dining options for event attendees.
Join the conversation about food literacy, access and preference in the Speck Gallery, and discover more about the Learning Gardens that Big Green has built and supported at schools across Marion County since November, 2016. “We are proud to partner with the Harrison Center to host Food Con 2019 to help us further our mission to improve the health of students and communities around the country by creating experiential outdoor learning spaces and garden-based education opportunities in schools,” said Megan Montague, Regional Director of Big Green Indianapolis. “Food Con allows us to come together for one night to help us educate the local community on our big vision to change food in Indianapolis and across the county.” This family-friendly event is free to attend and will leave you feeling inspired.
