Presentations from the Wales Future Generations Growers Conference in July 2016, which focused on creating a sustainable food system for Wales, that will help feed the population through a future of uncertain climate and political change.
With increasing interest in local food, community growing and food security, the event was an opportunity to discuss current initiatives both from Welsh Government and the community growing sector, and to help address the gap between supply and demand, as well as consumers and producers. The keynote speaker was David Morris, Deputy Head of the Food Division at the Welsh Government and there were sessions on the fruit and veg needs of Wales, building sustainable food systems, community supported agriculture and the Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
The event, at the Coed Hills Rural Art Space near Cowbridge in the Vale of Glamorgan, was organised by the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens and the Community Land Advisory Service in Wales (CLAS Cymru), funded by the Big Lottery Fund Wales.
