Moderated by DWT partner Jim Greenfield, the third installment of DWT and Forterra's Creating a Great Global Region series was an interesting and engaging evening focused on how social equity, community building and conversation of farmland intersect around food. The event consisted of a panel discussion of prominent members of the local agriculture and hospitality industries, followed by a group workshop, and ended with a networking reception. Creating great communities and preserving and protecting natural resource lands are inextricably connected. Food systems—the infrastructure of food production, food processing, food distribution, food consumption and the disposal of food wastes—are critical to fostering great communities and stewarding our resource lands. We recorded this event for the benefit of our clients and friends who were unable to attend or aren't part of the Seattle area, many of whom are deeply involved in one or more components of this food system.
