Event Description

COLIN TUDGE (The Campaign for Real Farming);HARRY BOGLIONE (Haye Farm - Organic Farmer & Slow Food Movement); TRACY WORCESTER (Farms Not Factories); Karen Luyckx KAREN LUYCKX (Food Waste, Feedback & Pig Idea)

Join the activists and pioneers in sustainable, globally considerate and ecologically harmonious agriculture for an evening panel + Q&A exploring how now, more than ever, is the time to take back the power over our health and the health of our land.

We will be discussing agriculture that is designed to provide everyone, everywhere, with food of the highest standard without wrecking the rest of the world. We will be looking at how to circumvent food waste and make informed decisions that may lessen our impact on the world and the suffering of others.

Governments are not doing what needs doing and with Brexit threatening to further lower standards of food production, nutrition and environmental policy, now is the time to make our voices heard and stop supporting practices we know to be wrong. Changing legislation and shifting power may offer an opportunity to take back the power, create participatory and democratic governance of our food system, challenge corporate power, replace unhealthy farming practices with sustainable agro-ecological methods of production and ensure healthy and natural food for all.

Please note: the venue will be announced upon buying a ticket
