We're pretty excited. For the past few months, we've been working closely with the JCC's Arts and Ideas team on an event that's finally close to happening. We're calling it Drawdown Getdown, and it's all about the ways that food and farming can help stop climate change by pulling CO2 out of the atmosphere. We are delighted to present an inspiring talk by Paul Hawken, editor of Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming (and we love that 11 of the top 25 solutions are in the food category!). Tickets include a copy of the book. We'll also be joined by Patagonia Provisions (and their beer), Straus Family Creamery (for a collaboration with The Perennial), Recology (ask the expert), the Lexicon of Sustainability (art of regenerative agriculture), and more.
Tickets here and more details below:

The JCCSF and The Perennial Present
With environmentalist Paul Hawken and Friends. Curated by Karen Leibowitz and Anthony Myint
Could global warming be stabilized – or even reversed – using solutions that already exist? Join us for an interactive afternoon of ideas, activities, tastes and inspiration curated by restaurateurs and activists Anthony Myint and Karen Leibowitz (The Perennial, Mission Chinese Food, Commonwealth) as they pop up at the JCCSF with an optimistic message about stopping climate change with food.
They are joined by renowned environmentalist Paul Hawken, whose Project Drawdown assembled a team of over 200 scholars, scientists, policymakers, business leaders and activists to put forward the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming, along with local experts and community partners like Recology for a food-focused conversation on tangible climate change solutions.
Throughout the afternoon, taste the Perennial’s signature kernza bread, made from a regenerative perennial grain, and Patagonia Provisions’ kernza beer, Long Root Ale; experience art by the Lexicon of Sustainability; play with interactive exhibits on food and climate change; enjoy a Perennial pop-up collaboration with Straus Family Creamery; and so much more. Taste, see, hear, feel and even smell how food can be part of the climate change solution!
