Cultivating Connections: Alberta Regional Food Systems Forum
February 3, 2017
Kevin Jones, Director of City Region Studies Centre, University of Alberta (moderator)
Lisa Holmes, Mayor of Morinville, President, Alberta Urban Municipalities Association
Billy Morin, Chief, Enoch Cree Nation
Tom Flynn, Mayor, Sturgeon County
Don Iveson, Mayor, Edmonton
These mayors elevate the conversation about the sustainability of our region as a prosperous, resilient, growing place, and local and regional food systems. This was an important opportunity to engage in a meaningful dialogue about regionalism, growth, land-use, and preservation of land for agriculture and food systems. It was also an opportunity to “cultivate connections” between these communities!
