20 years and a million acres with the Western Sustainability Exchange on September 26th at Chico Hot Springs. It's THE event of the Fall in Southwest Montana! Wine, food and land preservation!

On Friday, September 26th, at Chico Hot Springs Resort, Western Sustainability Exchange (WSE) celebrates its 20th anniversary and achievement of its Million Milestones.

The milestones reflect one million acres of critical habitat WSE has helped conserve through sustainable agricultural practices and $1 million in yearly sales the organization has generated for farmers and ranchers involved in their programs.

The celebration includes four appetizer “tasting” stations and a five-course plated dinner and wine pairing prepared by ten regionally-renowned chefs. All the chefs involved support local food production and will create a one-of-a-kind dining experience.

Proceeds from Harvest Celebration support WSE’s efforts to increase Montanans’ access to delicious, healthy food grown in Montana.

A major focus of WSE’s work is connecting farmers and ranchers who are exceptional stewards of their land with local restaurants, chefs, grocers, and distributors.

Tickets are $100 per person or $700 per table of eight. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for businesses to support WSE’s work.
