Bringing Food Home Conference (Kitchener, Mar 4-6, 2010)

I’d like to bring to your attention an upcoming conference in Kitchener called Bringing Food Home.  The purpose of this conference is to “bring together a broad range of participants from diverse regions and sectors, including farmers, food enterprises, health promoters, community groups and government organizations” in order to facilitate “learning and working together to create food systems that are healthy, just, accessible, culturally appropriate, financially viable and sustainable.”  The conference features keynote speakers Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm and Martin Gooch of the George Morris Centre and has the following streams:

  • Training for Emerging Farmers
  • Community Food Security
  • Strengthening Regional Economies
  • Sustaining Food Production—Farm, City and Countryside
  • Policy and Planning

You can download the program here.  Looks like a fantastic line-up.  Hope to see you there!
