Regenerate’s Heritage Grain Weekend
September 27, 28 & 29, 2019 | London, Ontario
This year Regenerate is back and we have expanded to include more grain focused events, added a Local food documentary and local food experts panel discussion, partnered up with Fall Food Fest and added a community day where we will work to build community.
Our focus in 2019 is continuing to building the conversation around the five components of grain: Bread, Beer, Distilling, Pasta and Pizza.
This regional collaboration weekend will highlight all these areas for consumers, chefs and farmers to engage in.
