Join us as we celebrate Farm to Fork Friday, Presentation, Conversation and Reception, as preparations for the 30th Annual, Sacramento Black History Month Expo Weekend unfolds.
We are planning a festive interactive experience that showcases a new direction and approach that celebrates our “Farm to Fork” heritage throughout the Greater Sacramento Region.
You will be amazed at the new resources focusing attention toward preserving our participation during the California Gold Rush Era, 1840-1875. We are excited to share new research, documentation toward preserving the historical legacy of free and enslaved, "hidden figures" who were major original pioneers in the “Farm to Fork Capital of America.”
Our keynote speaker is Mr. Fred Jordan, is the president of F. E. Jordan Associates, Inc., a consulting engineering, architectural, environmental and construction management firm headquartered in San Francisco. His firm has excelled in the engineering and consulting arena, serving as lead or consulting engineers for major projects throughout the world. Mr. Jordan will serve as the Engineer of Record, as we transform the ole Boys Ranch into Carson Creek Ranch.
Our developing Carson Creek Ranch Project targets public and private investment toward creating stronger inclusive applications that support healthy community outcomes and higher student achievement here in the Sacramento Region and throughout the Pan African Diaspora.
Together, we will preserve the past, for our future while showcasing immediate positive impacts by expanding inclusion throughout our “Farm to Fork Capital of America.” Seamless connectivity and inclusion will showcase our global leading “California Grown” industries.
