Promote stewardship for the betterment of people, profit and planet locally, regionally and globally Join us in celebrating food, environmental sustainability and community with our friends in Mechanicsburg. The leading topics for this program are to learn and share about the efforts by In Good Taste Catering, The Hive, and Hemisphere Coffee Roasters (each based in Mechanicsburg, Ohio) to: 

  • Adopt and apply relevant farm and conservation efforts into business practice
  • Build relationships within the local community, and into regional and global networks 
  • Create efforts to bring food (both livestock and crop commodities) products into supply chains, including through direct-sales to consumers 



In Good Taste Catering - A 5th generation farm operation that evolved into a central Ohio catering service providing menu items from fresh produce and local producers. Owned and operated by Amy Forest, serving over 1,000 people over the last decade including every EPN Breakfast since 2013. Check out more here!
