Root to bloom eating encourages us to enjoy our food to its full potential by using forgotten or often discarded parts of fruits, flowers and vegetables. This practice can increase the amount of edible food for consumption, using the same amount of resources, while also reducing food waste. Join Chow Chow for a flavorful vegetarian whole plant dinner, taking guests on a multi-sensorial dining journey starting from the seed in the ground all the way to the flower and its essence. Hear from Chris, Smith, author of The Whole Okra: A Seed to Stem Celebration, about how to be mindful about food waste and aware of the benefits derived from eating plants in their entirety. Learn about natural plant-based dyes with a demonstration from Echoview Fiber Mill, including indigo and black walnuts, and dyes that can be made from vegetable scraps including onion skins and avocado pits.

Featured Chefs/Restaurants: Graham House - Wild Child, April Moon - Sunny Point Cafe, Austin Inselmann - Leo's House of Thirst, Eli Je-Bailey and Sydney Rubin - Hominy Farm, Beth Kellerhals - French Broad Chocolates
