Judy Wicks, plus guests
Discover Portsmouth, 10 Middle St, Portsmouth, NH
Saturday, August 17, 2013
5 – 7 pm
Free and open to the public

Join The New Hampshire Women’s Initiative, Seacoast Local, and Water Street Bookstore for a special evening with nationally recognized activist and entrepreneur Judy Wicks.

Guests at “Dishing Out Change” will meet Wicks as well as Seacoast women farmers, fishermen and food entrepreneurs at the event. The conversations will explore the way women and men can follow both mind and heart in business, doing what’s right and doing well by doing good.

Judy Wicks started White Dog Cafe in 1983 as a small muffin shop on the first floor of her Philadelphia home. Inspired to blend social change and commerce, she grew it into a 200-seat restaurant that serves as a community hub and a national powerhouse for growing socially responsible business practices. Inc. magazine says the game-changing activist has enacted “more progressive business practices per square foot than any other entrepreneur.”

Kath Gallant of Blue Moon Evolution in Exeter, Mariah Roberts of Beach Pea Baking Company in Kittery, Susan Tuveson of Acorn Kitchen in Kittery (with Susan Kimball of Free Range Rabbitry), and Annette Lee and Nicole Carrier of Throwback Brewery in North Hampton will offer samples of farm-to-table treats, and talk about their vision for their own business and the legacy of the local food movement on the Seacoast.

Please RSVP to to help us prepare our tastings!
