Space Food Cornucopia-Next Grit Popup November 15th



Get a taste of what’s up in space this Nov 15, 6PM at the Standard Collective in the Eau Gallie Arts District (EGAD). Join NASA engineers and pioneers of urban farming at the Verdi EcoSchool in celebrating a new frontier for how we plant, grow, and eat food in space. 

Attendees will get to taste the same plants astronauts graze on up in space today. The plants are an important part of solving for “food fatigue” for astronauts spending hundreds of days away from Earth.

This event will begin with a speaking session at the Standard Collective in EGAD from 6PM to 7PM. Interactive planting and tasting workshops will take place at the Verdi EcoSchool from 7PM to 8PM.

Check out how space food is performing on SpaceX15 today by visiting @growbeyondearth on Twitter. For more on Verdi EcoSchool, visit VerdiEcoSchool.org.
