Ag dinner forum to canvass food plan
CATHY McGowan (MHR, Indi) will host a second North East ‘ag dinner’ in Wangaratta on November 21.
The first dinner, in August, bought together people interested in many aspects of agriculture, including research, business, finance and education.
One key topic discussed was the need for a food and agricultural plan for the North East, which is being pursued in various communities across Indigo, Alpine and Wangaratta municipalities.
Hume Food Opportunity Strategy author David McKinna will explore this topic at the next dinner at Gateway Hotel.
The Strathbogie strategic consultant established his own firm in 1983 and has since worked in a range of agrifood sectors – from commodities to groceries – or ‘paddock to plate’. The dinner will start at 6pm for 6.30pm. For bookings go to https://neagdinner2017nov. eventbrite.com.au.
