Just a reminder – the deadline to apply for the TEDxManhattan Challenge is October 1st.
We challenge you to work with a group of people in your community anywhere in the United States on a project related to sustainable food and farming. Start a garden at a senior center; start a farmers market; develop a cooking class at your child’s school; create a Food Policy Council in your city. Be creative!
Let us know what you’re doing to change the way you eat in your community – the project deemed the most impactful will win the opportunity to speak live on the 2013 TEDxManhattan stage. You can watch our 2012 winner, Howard Hinterthuer, speak about the Veteran’s Food Production Program/Organic Therapy Project.
