The GLTAG Culinary Experience....

We are excited to announce a new food experience for GLATG 2017! We have always believed that food should reflect our commitment to cultural traditions, environmental responsibility, and sustainability. Food is our most obvious and substantial connection to the environment, and is at the core of our direct relationship with the land. As such, we embrace indigenous and traditional foods for cultural revitalization, healthy living, and a sustainable future. Our meals, along with educational food workshops, provide opportunities to grow our longstanding focus on traditional knowledge by exploring traditional culinary arts with leading indigenous chefs from native communities around the region. Meals will feature culturally significant and local ingredients, ethically and sustainably harvested, and will be prepared fresh onsite. We hope you will invest in our meal plan, and join us as we celebrate the traditional foods and advocate for a healthy relationship with Mother Earth.

Vegetarian options will be available at every meal. There is only one meal plan, it includes all meals from Wednesday evening dinner through Sunday morning breakfast. No discount codes may be used for meals.
