We will have the true pleasure of hearing the story of film makers Max Romey and Natalie Fedak! Their story, like their films are full of twists, turns, suspense and triumph. This is no ordinary tale, rather one full of hard questions and even harder answers.....
There is a food Renaissance happening in Whatcom County. And we can all be a part. …As we celebrate September Eat Local Month, hear from Sara Southerland, a lady at the helm of the good food movement who will introduce how eating locally impacts our community economically, socially and environmentally, not to mention the impacts of food on our health, mood, well being, and most importantly – taste buds!
Sara Southerland is the Food & Farming Manager at Sustainable Connections where she works with businesses of all kinds to connect, promote and build a strong local food system that supports our community with every bite. Sara is also the Co-founder of Electric Beet Juice Co., an organic juice bar and café featuring delicious, artisan, locally sourced fare for every palate. She loves living in Bellingham and is committed to making Whatcom County the best place to live, play and work. When she’s not playing with food, talking about food, or organizing foodie events, Sara loves to go on hikes, ride her bicycle, sing and dance to cheesy 80s music.
Join us for this month's Morning JAM as we catch up with some of our favorite speakers from JAMs past. In a panel style similar to the popular "Inside the Actor's Studio" with James Lipton, we will be asking our former speakers how their life and work has changed since we last saw them.
Our panel will include:
Jessica and Mataio Gillis
This Wednesday, we're hosting our July installment of our creative mornings lecture series Morning JAM with guest lecturer Oleg Vetkov, owner of Salt, Pepper, Oil. Salt, Pepper, Oil is part of the new food revolution where delicious and healthy ingredients are delivered directly to you, recipe included. For those of us who lead busy lives but don't want to sacrifice taste and health, this is a great way to stay on top of your healthy eating habits.
We're excited to have Oleg share his passion for food and talk about his innovative business model at this month's JAM. To get you just as excited as we are, we interviewed Oleg about Salt, Pepper, Oil's history, as well as his own culinary journey.
This Jam is all about the integration of art and functionality. Andy Phillips, owner of Black Fin Design, promises "to resolve my clients goals by bringing solid, creative solutions to areas where comfort and functionality can be maximized while also enhancing the setting in a way that feels cohesive throughout." Examples of Andy's work can be seen in Kulshan Brewing, Elizabeth Station, EAT, Hoppis Real Estate, and essentially in all of the coolest places in Bellingham. We look forward to seeing you early this Wednesday for toast, jam, coffee, and design.
