BOULDER COUNTY PARTNERS FOR A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT
The Colorado Restaurant Association, in partnership with Boulder County Partners for a Clean Environment (PACE), will host a Restore Colorado informational webinar on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020 at 2 p.m. Mountain Time.
Restore Colorado is public-private collaboration to improve resilience and address climate change by developing regional soil health through regenerative agriculture on local farms and ranches. With support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and its Office of Urban Agriculture and Innovative Production, Boulder County is collaborating with Mad Agriculture, Zero Foodprint, and other local governments to engage with and build connections between the agricultural and restaurant communities.*
Restore Colorado is a voluntary program that gives participating restaurateurs the opportunity to engage with and support their local agriculture and farming community. Restaurants that choose to participate can add an optional 1% surcharge to the customer receipt. Revenue will be directly used to support carbon farming on regional farmland.
“This program gives me hope that citizens, businesses, farmers, scientists and governments can come together and tackle climate change while improving the food system,” said Anthony Myint, Zero Foodprint co-founder. "As restaurants move toward reopening in 2021, Restore Colorado is a chance to create a new normal that tackles climate change with healthy soil on local farms. This program is all about optimism and action. We can actually eat our way out of the climate crisis."
The webinar will feature a presentation by Zero Foodprint Co-Founder
Restauranteurs, members of the agricultural community, and all members of the public interested in learning more about this program are invited to attend.
