Tuesdays at 21 are a nearly-free, crowd-sourced, evening presentation series for the broader Sammamish Valley region hosted monthly at the Center for Local Food and Sustainable Living. The goal of Tuesdays at 21 is to provide community members with a unique opportunity to learn from and to share with people in the interdisciplinary fields within sustainability.

With the exception of the first talk, April 22, each Tuesday at 21 will focus on a particular topic and consist of three or four relevant 10-15 minute presentations coordinated by a 21 Acres guide.  The presentations will use 21 Acres’ building, farm and practices as inspiration and models for learning.  Five bucks at the door will get you in but a RSVP is requested. Doors open at 6:30, presentations start at 7 pm.  Arrive early to network and share ideas.  

For more information, to register, or to “make your pitch’ for a Tuesdays at 21 talk, call (425) 481-1500 or send Deb an email, deb@21acres.org.
