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?
Urban 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.
