3pm – “Food Systems, Education, and Healthy Communities” a presentation by Dwayne Wharton, Director of External Affairs for the Food Trust and Awbury neighbor

Dwayne Wharton serves as the Director of External Affairs for The Food Trust, a non-profit organization with a mission to ensure that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food. In this role he is helping to increase healthy food retail in underserved areas across the country. Dwayne’s first introduction to Awbury Arboretum was over a decade and a half ago when he attended a good friend’s wedding on the grounds. Later, he would accompany his children on class trips that were filled with discovery and lessons on the value of stewardship. He now regularly enjoys the tranquility of its sprawling 55-acres where he picnics with family and walks the trail with his dog on early mornings. As a neighbor and friend of the Arboretum, Dwayne says he is amazed that Awbury’s 55 acres remain free and open to the public, and hopes to do his part to help preserve the Arboretum and its programs so that more weddings can be held there, more children and families can learn and
discover the beauties of nature, and so that this community can continue to take full advantage of this tremendous treasure. Dwayne is volunteering as one of Awbury’s “Community Chefs” for the “Cookin’ with Who?” community fundraiser on November 7th!

3:45pm – “Localvore” Reception & Tour of Awbury Agricultural Village
Join Awbury board and staff members for a reception featuring locally-produced food and drink, and a tour of the Agricultural Village, including Awbury’s new Educational Classroom and Teaching Kitchen.
