Nourish Conference 2014 – Book now: bookings close October 10th!

 

When better to understand food than on World Food Day October 16th?

 

Where better to understand food than at the Nourish conference in Glasgow, city of the sugar trade, city where people’s response to losing the referendum was to fill George Square with food bank donations

 

How better to understand food than to get the ‘whole system in the room’ – small farmers’ leaders from India, Malawi and the Caribbean; food policy experts from the USA, Canada, India, Italy and the UK; climate change scientists, sustainable development advocates, people on the sharp end of food poverty in Scotland, Scottish farmers and crofters, people creating sustainable food cities, allotmenteers and community gardens, health campaigners, cooks and caterers.

 

… and of course the great Sheila Dillon herself chairing the evening debate.

 

Here’s what they said about last year’s Nourish conference

 

“It was so well organized, great speakers, good range of interests represented in delegates, real political traction via the subject matter, outstanding media coverage and of course excellent local, seasonal food! “

 

This year’s will be even better. (We also have sourdough bread from Andrew Whitley made with East Lothian organic heritage wheat, organic apples from Scotland’s newest commercial orchard at Falkland, Fife; and cheese from David and Wilma Finlay’s groundbreaking sustainable organic dairy in Galloway.)

 

 

Come for it all, come for a day, come in the evening – but it won’t be the same without you!
