Sustany® Foundation’s 6th Annual Sustainable Buzz Celebrates Tampa Bay’s Locavore Movement

The Sustany® Foundation, Tampa Bay’s facilitator of promoting sustainability on a local level, celebrates the best of the bay area’s quality of life with its locavore-themed 6th Annual Sustainable Buzz. Each year, Buzz attendees enjoy local food, drink and music on the riverfront. This year’s event of celebrating local food takes on a whole new meaning as local restaurants and farmers will team up to offer patrons food and drink samples made with locally-sourced ingredients.

The Sustainable Buzz comes just once a year!
