Join us in honoring some extraordinary activists and artists in an inspiring and fun evening, and come bask in the warmth, passion and good cheer of the Bioneers community. We will feast on a succulent meal designed by Embassy Suites Executive Chef Scott LaCrosse and consulting Plant Based Chef/Wellness Expert Adina Niemerow, who have teamed up again to create sublime nourishment for body, heart, mind, and spirit. Our food is being provided by cutting-edge, innovative, conscious companies supplying fresh, local, sustainably grown produce, working with some of the leading organic and biodynamic farmers, ranchers and dairies in the region.

Conference attendees purchase tickets for the event (the popularity of the event ensures that it will sell out). The evening is hosted by Bioneers founders Kenny Ausubel and Nina Simons, and Executive Director Joshua Fouts, with Bioneers Board members.
