The Guelph-Wellington Food Round Table invites you to the second in a series of events focusing on farming, the regional food system, and a Food Strategy for Wellington County and Guelph. Join us for this free event*, to help determine our regional food policy, investment and development priorities with a diverse group of stakeholders—including public officials, community organizations, farmers, restaurateurs and engaged citizens—as we begin the process of developing a community-led Food Strategy for Wellington County and Guelph.
This event will take place at the Erin Legion, 12 Dundas St E, Erin, ON
Friday, February 13, 2015 from 6:45 PM to 9:45 PM (EST)
In a rapid-fire format, a handful of presenters will answer the challenge question “Why do we need a regional food strategy?” — including speakers from Everdale Environmental Learning Centre; Friendly Chef Adventures; Ontario Farmland Trust; and Zócalo Organics.
This will be followed by the Erin premiere of the year’s hottest new documentary The Family Farm, in conjunction with Transition Erin’s Environmental Film Series. See the trailer for the documentary here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t60xMswH9n0
Refreshments will be provided.
The next event in the GWFRT Food Strategy Engagement Series will be in Centre Wellington (3rd week of March).
