Rootstock: A Field Fresh Experience

Rootstock 2017 happens on August 26th.  Join us at the Flint Rock Ranch, take in the breathtaking scenery over the prairies of Pincher Creek and the Waterton mountains; enjoy a gorgeous farm-to-table meal, listen to performances by Wintersleep, JP Hoe, the Folk Road Show and Pretty Faces, and support Food Water Wellness Foundation in developing tools for environmental restoration through healthy food production.

Start with cocktails and a farmers market where you can meet the folks responsible for the delicious food from which dinner will be prepared and hear the incredible harmonies of Pretty Faces.

Indulge in an amazing 4-course feast conceived by David Cousineau of the Bison Restaurant and Terrace in Banff. Barb Tomas from Love2Eat will again orchestrate a delectable farm-fresh salad and dessert will be topped by Anne Sellmer’s Cochu Chocolates.

A tent furnished with a country-chic mix of white tablecloths, mason jars, fresh flowers and candles will serve as a backdrop for this glorious feast, all nestled in the native pasture of the Porcupine Hills.
The infectious energy of Juno winners Wintersleep caps off the evening after the stage has been heated up by Folk Road Show and JP Hoe. This dance floor under the stars will most definitely be hopping.

Proceeds from this unique fundraiser further the work of Food Water Wellness in advancing the practice of regenerative agriculture that nurtures a robust ecosystem and healthy soil. Food Water Wellness Foundation is working to create an artificial intelligence tool that helps both farmers and researchers understand how soil can potentially be used to reverse climate change, increase biodiversity, mitigate both drought and flood and, most importantly, produce healthy food.
