Grain Changers: Celebrating the Heirloom Wheat Revival

In commemoration of the United Nations World Food Day, join us for a roundtable discussion about the movement to re-introduce old varieties of wheat and other grains into the American diet, based on the value placed on sustainable grain agriculture, benefits to human health, and the flavor of heirloom grains. The key question for the panel is: “Why heirloom wheat?”

The panelists will be:

  • Andy Clark: Baker, James Beard nominee, and owner of Moxie Bread Co. in Louisville
  • Mona Esposito: Also known as The Grain Lady, a heritage whole grain educator and consultant
  • Dan Hobbs: Organic farmer and owner of Hobbs Family Farm in Avondale, Colorado
  • Nanna Meyer: Director of the Grain School at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs
  • Eric Skokan: Chef, farmer, James Beard nominee, and owner of Black Cat bistro and farm
  • Phil Taylor: Fellow at CU’s Food Systems program, and executive director of Mad Agriculture
