South Carolina Food & Real Estate Forum: Exploring the Intersection of Food & Real Estate

bb_logomain_finalPlease join ULI South Carolina and Lowcountry Local First at the upcoming Charleston Area Food & Real Estate Forum on November 30. The day kicks off with a networking lunch by Chelsey Conrad of Butcher & Bee.  The event continues with lively conversations regarding the intersection of real estate and agriculture – the benefits of building food-related elements into development projects, expected returns, and effective partnership structures.  Hear from ULI members Steve Zoukis, Steve Navarro, as well as Ann Kulze, best-selling author, founder & CEO, Just Wellness, LLC and Post & Courier Food Editor, Hanna Raskin. We’ll finish off the day with a cocktail reception and tour of the Magnolia Community Garden.
