After hosting the successful “Cities Feeding People Conference” in 2007 Cultivating Community have joined forces with a broad range of passionate community food groups, agencies and local government to bring you the 2008 â€˜Growers and Eaters Forumâ€.
The forum aims to bring farmers and food security advocates, community organizers, policy makers, community food projects, local government, businesses etc together with the goal of establishing new food distribution enterprises that will be mutually beneficial to both growers and eaters.
The success of this forum and the resulting initiatives will depend upon the contribution of eaters and growers, however it is especially dependent on understanding the needs of growers and the effects of the current distribution system on their livelihoods.
