Eating on Mars & Feeding Canberra

The ACT Government will soon finalise its inaugural Food Strategy. Expectations are running high that it heralds new energy in Canberra’s food system. Consumer citizens want more say over the food they eat and to know it’s sustainably produced. Everyone has the right to access sufficient nutritious and affordable food. But maintaining our food security will be fraught with growing disruption to our national supply chain.

Our food system practitioners must bring the food strategy’s objectives to life. It’s timely then to consider the ‘how’ and the ‘who’ of improving our city’s access to sustainable food.

Hosting two guest speakers addressing strikingly different takes on producing more urban food:

  • The Gaia Project – Winner of the NASA Deep Space Food Challenge
  • Fiona Buining – Ainslie Urban Farm, Fresh Microgreens in Ainslie

Join in on the conversation and enjoy the taste of sensational sustainable food and beverages.
