The right food mix for the way ahead

Myrtleford Times - - News -

River re­gion food bowl beyond western Syd­ney, and lo­cal ini­tia­tives in­clud­ing farm­ers’ mar­kets, food ex­change projects and food co-op­er­a­tives.

“Our task in Food Lab 3 is to shape the fu­ture of the lo­cal food sys­tem,” she said.

Par­tic­i­pants would dis­cuss po­ten­tial im­prove­ments in the North East food sys­tem and iden­tify strate­gies and ac­tions to bring th­ese to re­al­ity.

Ms Schultz said any­one could at­tend – in­clud­ing those who had not taken part in the first two work­shops in June and Au­gust.

The Oc­to­ber 18 work­shop will take place at Wan­garatta’s Re­gional Stud­ies Cen­tre, 218 Tone Road, from 4:30pm.

Din­ner will be pro­vided as part of the four-hour work­shop – a free event.

In­tend­ing par­tic­i­pants have been asked to show how they iden­tify them­selves – as a pro­ducer, pro­ces­sor, re­tailer or con­sumer – by com­plet­ing a brief sur­vey at https://www.sur­vey­mon­ LNV8RTB.
