Upcoming Event: Feeding the City: The Politics & Promise of Urban Food #Manchester Tues 19th March

Hmm, last time this lot organised an evening forum, MCFly was under-whelmed.  Hopefully this one will be a forum rather than a panel debate followed by Q and A, eh?

feedingthecityUrban Forum on Food // Feeding the City:  The Politics & Promise of Urban Food

Book your place: http://foodforum.eventbrite.com

Cities around the world are emerging as key locales for growing food. A variety of approaches are being piloted to enhance health and well-being, encourage local economic growth and self-sufficiency, enrich social cohesion and community development, and diversify urban greening and resilience. In this research forum, we will discuss the opportunities and barriers of urban agriculture and speculate on the future of growing food in cities.
