Last week’s ULI SC & Lowcountry Local First Food & Real Estate Forum welcomed over 80 people at The Schoolhouse. Participants enjoyed a deliciously fresh luncheon prepared by Chelsey Conrad of Butcher & Bee. The discussion was kicked off by keynote speaker Dr. Ann Kulze, best-selling author, physician, and expert in the areas of nutrition, healthy living, and disease prevention. The day included panel discussions regarding finding opportunities to offer fresh, locally sourced food in areas that are otherwise “food deserts,” as well as in public schools, and a farm as an amenity in a new Johns Island community. Panelists and moderators included ULI members Steve Zoukis, Carter Redd, Brent Gibadlo and Diana Permar. The day ended with a tour of the Magnolia Community Garden and cocktail reception.
Here’s what just a few attendees had to say about the event:
“Congratulations on a fabulous event! What an inspiring group of people you brought together. We really enjoyed it, and I’ll be spending the weekend reading Dr. Ann’s books.” Melanie Mathos & Gina Stouffer, Lou Hammond Group
“I really enjoyed the forum and came into the office this morning feeling inspired by the topics that were discussed. I am optimistic that real estate and development in particular will follow the trend of incorporating agriculture and sustainable practices into local projects coming our way.” Betsey La Force, Coastal Conservation League
