Ijams Nature Center and Slow Food Tennessee Valley are teaming up to host a potluck dinner, seed exchange and discussion on Sunday, March 8, at 5 p.m. A special guest will talk about what environmental issues we are seeing here in East Tennessee and what is being done about them.

Potluck:  5-6:15 p.m.
Seed Swap: Ongoing throughout the event
Dinner Cleanup: 6:15-6:30 pm
Discussion: 6:30 p.m.

Guests are welcome to attend just the discussion, or both the potluck dinner and the discussion.

If you are planning to attend the potluck portion of the event, please bring a dish to share with an ingredients list and a serving spoon. As always, Slow Food Tennessee Valley strives for zero waste events, so please bring your own place setting as well (plate, silverware, cup napkin).

Guests are also encouraged to bring seeds or cuttings to share in the seed swap; heirloom plants are preferred. Slow Food Tennessee Valley will also have a variety of seeds available for attendees to take home at no charge.
