Natural Grocers® Joins Educational Panel for the Sustainability Showcase, Cedar Grove, Wisconsin, July 21, 2022


Regenerative farm-to-table event co-hosted by NACE Capital Area of Wisconsin and Egg Innovations

LAKEWOOD, Colo., July 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Natural Grocers® is proud to participate in the upcoming Sustainability Showcase on July 21st, 2022, co-hosted by the National Association for Catering & Events (NACE) - Capital Area of Wisconsin and Egg Innovations. The farm-to-table event will showcase how regenerative agriculture balances nature to create harmony and sustainability for farm and flock.

Natural Grocers® is proud to support the Sustainability Showcase on July 21, 2022, co-hosted by the National Association for Catering & Events (NACE) - Capital Area of Wisconsin and Egg Innovations.

Set on the pastures of the Teunissen Farm in the Dutch Heritage Acres of Cedar Grove, WI, this special event celebrates how suppliers, retailers and consumers have the power to give back to the planet through the businesses they support.

Attendees' registration includes a property tour of a working regenerative farm, experiential event setup, gourmet hors d'oeuvres, an open bar and an incredible multi-course feast crafted by Nadi Plates, featuring Helpful Hens and Blue Sky Family Farms pasture-raised eggs. After dinner there will be a casual educational program including expert industry panelists.

Natural Grocers' Christie Zimmerman will be joining the panel discussion. "We're thrilled to have Christie join us for this year's Sustainability Showcase," said Sarah Davidson, President of NACE Capital Area of Wisconsin. Davidson continued, "We'll have the best of both worlds for our attendees: they'll not only see (and taste) regenerative farming practices in person, but they'll also have the opportunity to learn and converse with top professionals in the regenerative agriculture space. Sifting through all the information that's out there on this subject can be daunting. This premier event will inform attendees what they need to know both as consumers and as premium food service providers, and show the power of impact that their everyday personal and professional choices have."

The panel, moderated by Sarah Davidson, will include:

"We're proud to support one of our key laying hen partners at this farm-to-table event. Being able to tour the farm and see the impact the birds have on the land, pollinators and the whole farm ecosystem is a unique opportunity. Natural Grocers is committed to educating the public on the powers of regenerative agriculture as well as the power of their purchase dollars. Bringing people into a closer relationship to where their food comes from matters because it empowers consumers to make better and more informed decisions," said Zimmerman.

Registration for the event closes at 11:59pm Friday, July 15th.
