Are you UpRooted?

Green eggs and ham may not be on the menu, but Hamilton’s first social food market will still be turning green this Fall.

UpRoot Hamilton, a fundraiser celebrating Green Venture’s 20th Anniversary will feature local chefs, local ingredients and the impact that eating local can have on the environment. Attendees to the October 3 event will be able to sample locally sourced and inspired food dishes that come from equally unique vendors, many of whom do not yet have an actual storefront location in the city.

“The reputation of Hamilton’s food scene is really taking off,” said Green Venture’s Executive Director Kathryn Enders. “We’re excited to celebrate rising chefs with this event, as well as showcase just how easy- and delicious- it can be to eat locally and reduce your environmental footprint in the process.”

The venue for UpRoot Hamilton, Green Venture’s EcoHouse, is just as unique as the food that will be served. An 1850s stone farmhouse, Green Venture has converted the property to be a complete environmental education and demonstration center of sustainable living that attracts over 10,000 individuals each year. As part of UpRoot Hamilton, Green Venture will be opening its gates for attendees to tour the two acre property and farmhouse as they sample the evening’s culinary delights.

Green Venture, Hamilton’s premiere environmental education not-for-profit organization, is dedicated to finding long-lasting, positive and practical ways to make Hamilton and the Golden Horseshoe region the most environmentally-friendly place to be, every single day.

UpRoot Hamilton, the organization’s 20th Anniversary Celebration will be held October 3rd, 2015 from 5-10:30pm at EcoHouse (22 Veevers Drive). For more information, or to purchase tickets, please visit
