2013 “Nature’s Plate” Green Restaurant Contest in New Jersey


The Nature Conservancy is asking foodies in New Jersey to nominate their favorite green restaurants for Nature’s Plate, a contest to name the people’s choice for our state’s top eco-friendly dining establishment.  Whether you’re a vegetarian or a meat-eater, it’s a good bet the healthiest and tastiest food on your table came from nature. From the oysters growing out in the Delaware Bayshores to the tomatoes soaking up the sun at the farm down the road, healthy food demands a healthy planet. And our planet is nurtured when food production is sustainable.

That’s why The Nature Conservancy is to working with food producers everywhere and bringing together traditionally unexpected partners in the name of healthy food and a healthy environment, finding solutions that are good for their businesses, for consumers and for nature.

While the contest is focused on restaurants, it’s only the start of a conversation about food, conservation and The Nature Conservancy’s work with farmers, fishermen and ranchers.  To participate, visit www.nature.org/naturesplateNJ, where you can learn more about what makes a restaurant green and nominate your favorite New Jersey eatery that fits the bill.
