Panelist-Sustainable Growth: New Models for Funding Sustainable Food Systems
Eileen Gordon Chiarello is the founder of Barnraiser, a community to power the good food movement one project at a time. She and her husband, Chef & TV host Michael Chiarello, are proprietors of Chiarello Vineyards - sustainably farmed vineyards in Napa Valley—acclaimed Bottega & Coqueta restaurants, Emmy-winning Food Network shows and the NapaStyle brand. Each inspires the celebration of everyday rituals around the table, a legacy she believes we must leave to future generations. Her passion for story, young people and sustainability led her to create Dirt-to-Dine Adventure Camps for kids at Connolly Ranch before launching Barnraiser in 2014. Barnraiser has been featured in Fast Company, Food & Wine, Sunset, National Geographic's The Plate, Civil Eats and more.
