Join The Nature Conservancy for dinner at Tommy’s on Feb. 19
Last fall, The Nature Conservancy asked foodies in Cleveland, and across the country, to nominate their favorite green restaurants for its second annual People’s Choice Nature’s Plate Awards. Tommy’s Restaurant, 1824 Coventry Road in Cleveland Heights, garnered the most votes of the four nominated Greater Cleveland restaurants and so won the Conservancy’s 2013 Nature’s Plate Award for Cleveland.
On Feb. 19, the Ohio Nature Conservancy Meetup group will gather for dinner at Tommy’s, to celebrate the award and continue the conversation about food, conservation and The Nature Conservancy’s work with food producers. The public is invited to join in the dinner and the discussion.
For this meetup, Tommy’s will offer a 10 percent discount off the check for each person at the Conservancy’s table. Tom Fello, owner of Tommy’s, and Josh Knights, executive director of the Conservancy in Ohio, will join the group for the meal and a discussion of how the Conservancy is bringing together traditionally unexpected partners in the name of healthy food and a healthy environment.
The Conservancy works with food producers everywhere, finding solutions that are good for business, consumers and nature.
A reservation is required for the dinner. Visit the Ohio Nature Conservancy Meetup group's website at www.meetup.com/Ohio-Nature-Conservancy-Meetup-Group/ to learn more and to sign up.
Randy Edwards is a senior media relations manager at The Nature Conservancy and a member of its Ohio meetup group.
