Sunil Patel is a Farmer and Chef Who Is Laying the Groundwork for a Citywide Food System
Show Notes

Sunil Patel is the founder/farmer of Patchwork Urban Farms and Sunil’s Indian Suppers in Asheville, NC. He is an accomplished chef and visionary and is laying the groundwork for a citywide food system by creating networks of sharing relationships that can support a village scale food production platform. Sunil explains why having farming out in the open, where people can experience it on a daily and seasonal basis (just by seeing it happen in their neighborhood), will in a subtle but powerful way shift how we relate to the land we live on and the food we eat. Sunil's Indian Suppers are created with love and a mixture of Sunil's farming background and worldly travels, creating an experience spanning the range of the diverse array of Indian cuisines. The local-seasonal menu is always cooked from scratch, with Sunil's care for the earth, nutrition and heart, leading to a feeling of fusion but still a wholly Indian experience.
