On this episode, we talk with Trish Watlington, founder of Farm to Fork San Diego, a grassroots group of restaurants, beverage makers, businesses and non-profits that support local farmers and fisher families and a fairer, more sustainable food system.
Trish gives us the inside scoop on the upcoming Farm to Fork week, Sept 8 thru 15.
Farm to Fork week is your chance to try special drinks and dishes, special menus and special events. What sets Farm to Fork Week apart is the chefs' commitments to sourcing ingredients from local farmers, ranchers and fishermen.
The week kicks of on September 8 at the historic Mission Hills Nursery with Farmers, Chefs & Fishermen. A Seasonal Farm-to-Table Tasting featuring all the bounty of San Diego County. The event will be a rare opportunity to play in a beautiful garden setting and savor the summer harvest!

Wrench and Rodent Seabasstropub, Cupcakes Squared, Bivouac Ciderworks, Garden Kitchen, Vineyard Grant James, Fave Tacos, Raging Cider and Meade, Terra, Gayagaya, Stehleon Vineyards, Vesper Vineyards, Royale Cocktail Bar, Ramona Ranch Winery... and more to come.
