People's Choice 2012 Nature's Plate Award
09:00 AM - 10:00 AM
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is asking foodies in the DC metro area to nominate their favorite green restaurants for Nature’s Plate, a contest to name the people’s choice for each area’s top green restaurant. Recent trends show a dramatic shift toward sourcing local foods and using more sustainable practices for farming, ranching and fishing. Nature’s Plate offers a way to highlight some of the restaurants that are leading and supporting this trend. Nature’s Plate is brought to you by The Nature Conservancy and sponsored by Open Table.
While the contest is focused on restaurants, it’s only the start of a conversation about food, conservation and TNC’s work with farmers, fishermen and ranchers. I believe that people living in Montgomery County would be interested in participating in this type of contest and continuing the discussion around food and sustainability. To participate, people can visit http://www.nature.org/naturesplate, click on their city and then nominate their favorite green restaurants. They can also learn more about what makes a restaurant green and some of our work in the region.
Nominations are open now, semifinal voting begins June 4 and the winner will be announced June 26.
