Pittsburgh Farm to Table Conference March 23-24 (Plus Ticket Giveaway)

This is so exciting!

The sixth annual Farm to Table Conference will be held Friday and Saturday, March 23 and 24, 2012, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.  The conference will feature live cooking demos by chefs and dietitians, talks on such topics as nutrition, humane treatment of animals, and gardening, kid-friendly activities, and exhibitions by local farms, creameries, wineries, and more.  There will also be a breakfast event on Saturday morning and a food tasting on Friday night featuring some of my personal favorites (Franktuary and Olio Fresca Olive Oil) as well as other vendors whose products I'm very excited to try (E², North Country Brewing Company, Pretzel Crazy, and more).

If you are interested in the Friday night food tasting event which takes place 5:00-8:00 pm, I have a pair of tickets to give away (a $50 value)!  To enter, do one or more of the following:

Method #1...Post the following to Twitter:

Note: You must mention @foodcollage in your tweet so that I am notified of your entry. Also, if you have a private Twitter account and I'm not following you, you must email me to let me know you've tweeted or there is no way for me to know about your entry!

Method #2...Post the following link to your Facebook page and encourage your friends to check it out:

Note: You must include my email address in your list of recipients or there is no way for me to know about your entry!

Only one entry per method but multiple entries are allowed if you do more than one of the above.  For example, if you tweet the same message twice, that counts as only one entry, but if you post to both Twitter and Facebook, you get two entries.  Doing all three will get you three entries!

The deadline to enter the ticket giveaway is 5:00 pm on Friday, March 16. A random drawing will be conducted and the winner will be announced by Sunday, March 18.

Tickets for all conference events are available here.  Teachers get a free registration to the conference and are eligible to earn Act 48 credits.
