    By Katie Chatham Today we are living in a time when environmental awareness and the efforts towards sustainability are on the rise. To acknowledge and honor these movements, entire communities have taken action by doing things like banning plastic bags and straws, and encouraging everyone to shop and eat locally. The community of Prescott stands alongside many others that encourage these movements. One local eatery stands out when it comes to the efforts taken to realize the ideas of sustainability and sourcing locally. BiGA, a restaurant in the heart of Prescott, has gone to great lengths to ensure that the food served is sourced locally and raised in an environmentally conscious manner. From the structure of the building, to the leftovers, everything has been thought out carefully and has our Earth and our community at heart. Much of the structure of BiGA was built from repurposed wood and metal in an effort toward sustainability. And what about the food you leave on your plate? The servers place it into a receptacle to take back to the chickens at the farms where that very food was grown—it all comes around, full circle. BiGA’s owners, Chef John Panza and Cassandra Hankison, have been working in the industry for years, and came together to start a “pop-up”style dining and catering business called Senses back in July of 2016.

The place has been redone in minimal but tasteful décor, and the menu is equally spartan and unfettered with choices to satisfy all. The menu changes frequently so selections are always changing leaving the element of culinary surprise.

It’s definitely on the happenin’ side of P-town. The Dustbowl Revival is coming to the Highlands Center 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, courtesy of The Folk Sessions, to help celebrate their 10-year anniversary. The revival is a music collective hailing from Venice, Calif., but don’t let their locale fool you — their sound is straight from the hills, with sweet, swampy harmony and plenty of porch stomp. Songs like “New River Train,” off their latest album, Carry Me Home, are sure to set your boots to tapping. Tickets are only $12. Prescott may be Arizona’s Christmas City, but October happenings suggest the additional moniker “Halloweentown.”
