Tasting a Sustainable Future: Climate Action Fair & Reception

Wed. Apr. 24th, 7-9PM
Community Hall

On Wednesday, April 24th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the City of Piedmont and Piedmont Connect will host “Tasting a Sustainable Future: Piedmont Climate Action Fair & Reception” at the Community Hall. 

Consumption is a large portion of emissions that are emitted in Piedmont. It is hard to measure and to monitor as emissions stemming from consumption are based on individuals’ choices. The April 24th event will showcase different sectors of consumption: transportation, food, water, home energy, clothes, and waste.

Residents who come to the event will have the opportunity to learn how to purchase more sustainably, reduce their food waste, conserve water, travel greener, and electrify their homes. Information at the event will be provided by representatives of the East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD), East Bay Community Energy (EBCE), Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD), and StopWaste. Members of Piedmont’s community and City staff will also be sharing resources and information.

Attendees will have a chance to meet Piedmont chef Paul Arenstam of Summer Kitchen and San Francisco chef Nick Balla of Bar Tartine, who will serve sustainable snacks from Balla’s new Smokebread project. They will also be able to try Patagonia Provision’s new Long Root Wit beer made with the climate-friendly grain, kernza.

EBCE, Piedmont’s local electricity provider, is a sponsor of this event.

Residents wishing to attend should register through Eventbrite at https://tastinasustainablefuture.eventbrite.com. Registration will close once the event reaches capacity. Unfortunately, due to the high level of interest in this event, walk-ins cannot be accommodated.
