‘Building short supply chains’

There is strong interest in local food as a result of Covid and Brexit, and community projects are well placed to create and strengthen local food chains. They may grow their own food, or they may help create markets for local farmers and growers through food hubs and direct sales. They may also help to develop a lively food culture that builds trust and interest in local food, encouraging the public to see themselves as citizens rather than consumers, and so indirectly supporting new supply chain initiatives. 

Speakers include:

Katie Hastings, (Mach Maethlon, Machynlleth)  'Producing and selling vegetables'.

Andrea Sanders, (Yr Ardd, Llandysul) 'Community growing schemes and short supply chains for livestock farmers'.

Tom Cowcher, (organic farmer and community councillor, Ceredigion.) 'Buying from local farmers.'

Alex Cook, (Foundational Economy Project, Carmarthenshire County Council)  'Local fresh food on the public plate'

Come and join us and contribute your thoughts to the interesting discussions on the above ideas/ themes.

This event will build on the previous two FFTGU events and also an RW-supported conversations between mid-Wales community food groups.
