Did you get shut out of the NYC Food and Climate Summit hosted by Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer? The free, all-day event at NYU on December 12 includes panels on “composting your food waste” and “urban agriculture,” as well as a hands-on session about canning and fermenting at home. (Check the official site for more panels.) Tickets went in a hurry, but the BP’s office — along with partners NYU and Just Food — set aside twenty for Grub Street readers who don’t want to miss out on hearing the likes of Mario Batali and Colin “No Impact Man” Beavan. Send an e-mail with “Grub Street/NYC Food and Climate Summit” in the subject line and include your name, e-mail address, and phone number. You’re welcome.
