Sprout’s Original Life Farm Tour: On June 15, Sprout gives a tour of Original Life Farm; an aquaponic farm where fish and plants are raised together in harmony. And o, this isn’t some sort of sci-fi utopian hoopla involving plexiglass bio domes and whatnot, but a practical system proven to produce higher quality food. There’ll even be a presentation on the differences between traditional, organic, and Original Food, and the always China-relevant topic of food safety and the future of agriculture. You’ll get to tour the aquaponics system and even take some Original Life food home with you! Reservations are essential so RSVP to [email protected]
180RMB in advance + 200RMB at the door // 1-5pm // Details will be provided to participants in the RSVP reply.
