Futures Forum: Sidmouth Climate Week >>> Thursday 15th March >>>>> “In Our Hands”, showcasing small-scale ecological farming in Devon and beyond
Futures Forum: Sidmouth Climate Week > More farmers, more food >>> film and talk on relocalising food production
The government is asking for views on the "future for food, farming and the environment":
With comment from a correspondent:
I think we need to emphasise that we want to encourage more homegrown produce which will have knock on health benefits , more encouragement for start ups and smaller mixed farms. And a regulation of supermarkets and other big players so that more of the food pound goes back to the producer.
Basically encouraging agroecology which has all the healthful relocalised, resilient, productive food supply benefits built in, but which also provides ecological, employment and social benefits too.
