For the past seven years, Berry Good Night has celebrated local growers, ranchers, and producers, along with championing the ideology of sustainable food. It has united kindred spirits—artisans, food activists, farmers, ranchers, winemakers, brewers, writers, chefs, restaurateurs, and dedicated locavores—for an evening of conscious conversation over a sensory sustainable feast.
Originally, guests rotated tables after each course to forge new friendships and potential partnerships. Then, in 2016, people mingled among several dining stations where chefs highlighted a single seasonal ingredient, sparking greater discussion. In 2017, we mark yet another exciting transition for Berry Good Night.
To engage the community like never before, we are presenting an interactive and inspirational culinary adventure for just 100 hand-selected idea ambassadors who are focused on instrumental change in our food systems. We’re calling on experts across the country from all disciplines---farmers, chefs, academics, students, luminaries, and beyond---to bring a transformative dialogue to an evening that will be unlike anything you have experienced before. We are also honored to welcome Danielle Nierenberg, co-founder of Food Tank, as our featured speaker.
Together we aim to spark conversation, education, empowerment, and action---and we need your ideas to light the fire. What will you share with us? Who will enlighten you? What will you be inspired to do? If you are passionate about creating authentic change, please fill out this brief application (5-10 minutes) before July 15, 2017.
Thank you for your submissions. The application period has ended.
Attendees will be notified by August 15th, 2017.
Please visit the Berry Good Night Facebook page for more information.
We look forward to a new kind of inspiration on September 23rd, and we hope you can be one of the 100 founding voices.
**There will be a fee to attend Berry Good Night on a sliding scale (more details to come). All proceeds will benefit the Berry Good Food Foundation.**
