Sustain’s mandate is to support communities and organisations that are collaborating to build better food systems around Australia. So we are delighted that the following events comprise a national festival of discussion and collaboration on urban and peri-urban agriculture, and sustainable and regenerative food systems more broadly.
Blueprint for future food systems in regional Victoria
Tuesday 20th February, Bendigo
This half-day workshop will bring together planning, health and food systems experts with producers, vocational trainers, and food industry professionals, to reflect on the many years of accumulated experience and practice in Bendigo, and to explore the question: where to from here? Topics to be discussed will include farmland preservation, local food network development, regional food strategy and policy work, TAFE Food and Fibre Centre of Excellence and curriculum development, and lessons from the Cardinia Food Circles project and the Alphington Community Food Hub.
Sponsored by the City of Greater Bendigo and Bendigo Kangan Institute
