Conference (2017): ARFS Forum - Cultivating Connections

Cultivating Connections: Alberta Regional Food Systems Forum 2017

On Feb 3-5 2017 Alberta Food Matters and FLEdGE – Food Locally Embedded, Globally Engaged – hosted a very successful Cultivating Connections 2017 Forum about Alberta Regional Food Systems. The purpose of this Forum was: 1) to bring together individuals and representatives from public, private and non-profit sectors in Alberta to share information about innovative initiatives; 2) to identify opportunities; and 3) to collaborate in building socially just, economically viable and ecologically sound and sustainable local/regional food systems in the province. The Forum provided a venue for those interested in forming partnerships, coalitions and action-oriented working groups toward this end. It was a gathering to talk about our Alberta regional food system.
