David to talk at Going Local: Sustainable & Fair Food in Melbourne

“Healthy food systems are the foundation for healthy lives, communities, economies and ecosystems. In order to build a future for Melbourne in which we can all thrive, we need a food system that is sustainable, resilient and equitable”.
Do you want to find out how it could be done? Then you should join us with David Holmgren on Tuesday evening, 11 February for Sustainable & Fair Food: Going Local. This evening, organised by Doing Something Good, an organisation set up in 2011 by Melbourne Social Entrepreneur of the Year award winner, David Hood, will give you a food for thought. David Holmgren will be one of the keynote speakers who will discuss the most crucial issues of our time from a whole systems perspective.
Sustainable & Fair Food: Going Local will be held at Grand Buffet Hall, Union House, University of Melbourne. The evening is free, but you need to register at the Doing Something Good website.

At Sustainable & Fair Food: Going Local, you’ll hear why building a local food economy is good for the environment, farmers, community, your weekly food bill, and our future. You’ll get to share what ‘going local’ means for you, why you think it’s important, and how the City of Melbourne might help us all to ‘go local’. You’ll also get to cocreate a vision for the City of Melbourne about what ‘going local’ might look like for producers, retailers, restauranteurs, community and government, in and around Melbourne.
