The Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales invites you to join expert panelists to explore the challenges we face as Wales moves towards a more sustainable and resilient food and farming system that works with, and for, nature.
Sunday October 16 at Knighton Community Centre, Bowling Green Lane (1.30pm doors open; 2pm start; 6pm finish).
The afternoon will take the form of a series of panel discussions - involving farmers/growers as well as policy makers and campaigning groups - with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
Panellists include Patrick Holden from the Sustainable Food Trust, Welsh Government on their Sustainable Farming Scheme and Peter Fox MS on his new Food Bill for Wales.
Tickets are £5 or £3 for concessions (farmers/food producers/under 30s) in advance
£6 and £4 on the door: welshfoodandfarming.eventbrite.co.uk
Come along to hear from our farmers and growers about the changes they are making in the face of rising commodity prices and the climate emergency. What does sustainability mean in practice? And how can policy-makers and consumers support them as we make the transition towards a more sustainable food production system? Also, importantly, how can we ensure that high-quality food is affordable?
Tickets are also available on the door – £6 and £4 for concessions. There is plenty of parking at the venue.
