Our 6th Annual Amuse Bouche event is a festive panel discussion with five outstanding professionals who represent a holistic view of the current paradigm in organic farming, sustainable textiles and eco-friendly fashion. From industrial cotton to hemp farming. From fast-fashion to upcycled boutique wear. We’ll delve into concerns over the impacts of apparel, dive into topics you’re curious about and explore the questions you’re yearning to ask! Keeping with tradition, we’ll hold our annual Amuse Bouche the night before our first Think Again: Fashion, Farming and Fiber Gathering. The panel will be moderated by Elijah Brunson of the Rachel Carson Council.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Well behaved children are always welcome. There will be a cash bar run by Pittsboro Roadhouse.
Marty Clemons, President of NC Industrial Hemp
