Coinciding with Fashion Revolution Week and Earth Week, our next Who's Who will focus on ways to slow down the cycle of fast fashion by reusing and re-purposing garments that already exist—in our own closets and through secondhand retail. We'll enjoy light appetizers in a private space at Raleigh Times while hearing from several local speakers. Your $15 ticket includes appetizers and event admission. A cash bar will be available as well as plenty of time for Q&A and socializing.
One Acre Exchange celebrates the community built through a shared hemp supply chain. Hemp holds tremendous potential as a crop that can contribute to restoring our working landscape, revitalizing our regional economy, and rethinking the impact of the way we produce textiles. Connecting local farmers, workers and artisans centered around hemp grown and processed in Durham County, the work represented in One Acre Exchange serves as a model for how an innovative, cooperative, equitable supply chain can be designed.
