Local 301 Presents: Doing It In the City

(Forwarded from Hillhurst Sunnyside Farmers Market.)

This month we'll be having a roundtable discussion moderated by Kris Vester, President of Slow Food Calgary and local biodynamic farmer.

Does urban agriculture enhance access to healthy, sustainably grown food?

What role does urban agriculture play in creating just and sustainable food systems?

What other benefits arise from backyard gardens, community gardens, & spin farming?

What are the trade-offs of urban agriculture versus the current systems of production?

How can governments, communities and individual citizens support these initiatives?

These questions and more will be discussed by our panel:

Steph Gagnon: the City of Calgary Office of Sustainability and Calgary Food Committee
Dr. David Swann: MLA for Calgary Mountainview
Chad Kile: Calgary Urban Farmer and co-owner of Leaf and Lyre Urban Farm

We hope to see you there - feel free to come early (between 4 and 7 to do some shopping at the Market!)
