LIMITS TO LOCAL - MARCH 23rd, 1:30 - 4:30PM
Join Slow Food Calgary for the launch of ‘Limits to Local’!
Bringing together food producers, academics, right-to-food advocates, eaters, engaged citizens, policy makers, scientists and chefs, this series will address some of the challenging, complex issues surrounding food in our city and region.
Moderated by farmer and Slow Food Calgary convivium leader Kris Vester, this inaugural forum will focus on two issues that have gained significant cultural currency, ‘Local Food’ and ‘Food (In)Security’.
