Ford Farm To Car Event

November 1, 2016

We had a fabulous time at the Edmonton Far To Car Event, hosted by Ford Canada at the Art Gallery of Alberta.  In usual Ford Fashion, every detail was tended too!

We learned a lot about what sustainability initiatives Ford is focusing on.  A few that stuck out in my mind from the event where using Agave and US money to make items for vehicles.  Ford and Jose Cuervo are working together to explore the use of the tequila producer’s agave plant byproduct in Ford vehicles. You can read more on this initiative here.  The money that the US Treasury removes from circulation can be shredded and made into the change dishes in Ford Vehicles.  So many amazing ideas and environmental breakthroughs.  I enjoyed seeing a Ford plant in a video during the event that featured roof top gardens.

The menu had an Alberta theme that started off with Agave Martini’s in honor of the Jose Cuervo-Ford partnership.
