Panel talk on Food Security

This should be an interesting talk, the people involved are certainly broadminded and open to thoughts and ideas.   I do find that some parts of the Food Security Movement are close minded and see this is the latest campaign to attack the "System"

A Transition Victoria Food Group Networking Event / Panel Discussion:

This will be an opportunity to network with others in Food Security, to learn about and get involved with Transition Food Group Projects, Upcoming Events and Happening .

The panel discussion theme is: "What steps can we take to be food secure?"

  • What are the actions to increase food security short, medium and long run that we can take?
  • How can we connect the groups and organizations actively promoting food security and connect to them?
  • What public policies do we need to support greater food security?

Panelists:

  • Carolyn Herriot, The Garden Path
  • Philippe Lucas, City of Victoria Councillor, and Victoria Downtown Public Market Society (VDPMS)
  • Gabe Epstein, Gorge Tillicum Urban Farmers (GTUF)
  • Linda Geggie, Capital Region Food and Agriculture Initiative Roundtable (CR-Fair)

Moderator: Anthony Sanna, VIVA-Raw and Ambrosia Conference and Events Centre.

Admission by donation. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Panel discussion starts at 7:15 p.m. Come early to network. Refreshments will be provided. Limited seating.
