SA Food Convergence, 10 - 13 February 2010
From Plains to Plate’ will bring together community, business and government to discuss the issue of strengthening South Australia’s food systems in the face of intensifying environmental, social and economic challenges.
Speakers from a range of fields will discuss how local producers and successful government policies and programs can complement community action to provide accessible, healthy food and the skills to cultivate resilient communities. The convergence will examine food and agriculture through a number of streams, including urban planning and growth, agriculture and the environment, public health and food access, education and sustainability, and economics and policy. A number of sessions will focus on community and school gardens as part of the solution.
‘From Plains to Plate’ will bring together great minds and great ideas to produce a vision that will pave the way for making healthy and sustainable food systems a reality in South Australia.
