28th and 29th September
Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh
In the worst growing season for years, with dairy industry protests, the pig sector under pressure and US drought pushing grain prices to a record high, we face some big choices about the future of Scotland’s food. The Nourish conference will explore Food 2.0 – a food system which feeds everyone well and affordably while delivering vibrant, diverse and climate-smart local food economies.
Friday’s session will include a keynote address from Anya Hultberg from Copenhagen’s House of Food, which has converted 75% of the city’s public food to organic. On the Saturday the conference will looking at how community groups, NGOs, small producers and concerned citizens can work together for a better food system.
N.B Nourish are looking for local organic producers to supply seasonal food for the event, which the catering team at QMU will cook. Please get in touch (see below) if you can offer some produce in return for a free place at the event.
