Selling the Bacon

We’ve put on an all-day event called PigStock, which features pork and bacon dishes, live music and prizes. Livestock raised by students in the local 4-H club was purchased at the county fair and incorporated into the menu. These large-scale events are a great way to connect students to our local sustainability efforts as well as build community support.
