AVONDALE, PA – On Friday, June 18th, Stroud™ Water Research Center will host its second annual A Sustainable Feast featuring the season’s harvest and the artful cuisine of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania based restaurant, Talula’s Table. The feast, the proceeds of which will benefit the Stroud Water Research Center, is intended to celebrate local, sustainable agriculture and draw the connection between the requirements for clean, fresh water and a healthy watershed to produce our food.
“The reality is that our watershed is also a foodshed,” says Bern Sweeney, director of the Stroud Water Research Center. “This event lets us underscore our collective responsibility to preserve and protect the water supply that sustains us.”
“We rely on the East Branch of the Brandywine for high quality water for our beer making,” said Bill Covaleski, president and brewmaster of Downingtown, Pennsylvania based Victory Brewing Company. “I’m happy to support the efforts of the Stroud Water Research Center to understand, protect and preserve the fresh water we depend on for a thriving business and healthy communities.”
“Throughout our 120-year year history, Northern Trust has been committed to promoting environmental, social and governmental awareness worldwide and in the communities we serve. We are proud to support The Stroud Water Research Center whose mission aligns with our goals of sustainability and corporate citizenship,” said Dan Lindley, president of The Northern Trust Company of Delaware.
Diners will be treated to a sumptuous, multi-course meal created from the bounty of our local Chester County farmers and producers. The evening is made possible by the generous support of The Northern Trust Company and our event sponsors: Applestone Farm, Inc., Buck Run Farm, Inverbrook Farm, The Northern Trust Company, Bob & Trish Scott, SIW Vegetables, Morris & Boo Stroud, SunnyGirl Farm, Talula’s Table, Va La Family Farmed Wines, and Victory Brewing Company.
