How do we Scale Up Local Food Production? Brain Feast Session

At a time when we feel ever more in need of better food systems, how can we create a structure to support access to better local produce? What networks do we have in place to develop a more resilient local food economy, and how can we learn from other cities around the world to develop what we already have in place?

Chair for The Community Farm and a doctor by trade, our host Angela Raffle‘s motivation for system change comes from a commitment to social justice and the care of the natural world.

Angela will be joined by Humphrey Lloyd, local instigator, change champion and salad producer for Edible Futures; Feed Bristol and the Landworkers Alliance; Joy Carey, founder director of Bristol Food Network and an independent consultant in sustainable food system planning with a focus on cities; Diana Finch, Managing Director for the Bristol Pound; Steph Wetherell, local food campaigner, writing as The Locavore, coordinator for Bristol Food Network and programme coordinator for Abergavenny Food Festival; and Helena Norberg-Hodge, author of Ancient Futures, and Director/Producer of award winning documentary ‘The Economics of Happiness’.  Helena and her organisation Local Futures are pioneers of the new economy movement and have been promoting local food economies for more than three decades. Among other activities, they started the Local Food Programme at the Soil Association.
