Agricultural Communities

Agricultural Communities

Georgia and Anita from Mangiato

Agriculture is an important industry in the Macleay. Join is to discuss what agriculture means to our local food systems, hospitality, health and job market. We will explore two key questions:

  1. How can we get more local food on local tables?
  2. How can we support local farms to be more commercially viable? (what does viable mean?)

Community Conversation 29 February 4pm-6pm
Join us for a light supper and conversation about agricultural communities in the Macleay.

The event will feature two speakers and will be followed by a short workshop to gather your thoughts. The speakers are:

  1. Lorraine Gordon (picture to the right) farmer and founder and chair of the National Regenerative Agriculture Alliance ( Lorraine will speak about scaling farms – bigger isn’t always better. More
  2. Georgia Munro (picture above) from Mangiato, Kempsey who will speak about building local food networks for hospitality. more
