Eat Local Week, Transition Sarasota’s popular annual celebration of local food includes a mix of farm to table  meals, tours of farms and food operations and educational events covering a range of topics, from permaculture and urban gardening to sustainable aquaculture.

The 10-day festival gets rolling on Friday, Oct. 19, with a keynote presentation by Koreen Brennan, a well-known teacher and practitioner of permaculture based in Brooksville, Florida. Permaculture is a system of ethical design that balances the needs of people and the environment to develop sustainable systems, especially in agriculture and local food economies.

On Saturday Oct. 20 we have the 3rd annual Big Mama’s Collard Green Fest, which challenges local chefs and cooks to create mouth-watering samples out of their best collard green recipes. Locals are encouraged to sample a mix of Cajun, Creole, Southern and Caribbean flavors, while also enjoying live music.
