Regenerative farming, flexible and resilient supply chains, and ‘growing’ new farmers will be the topics brought to the table at the second Mornington Peninsula Food Forum next week.
Agriculture, food and beverage businesses have been invited to hear from keynote speakers including Prom Coast Food Collective co-founder Sally Ruljancich and Farmer Incubator lead researcher Tanya Massey, as well as perspectives from some of our most innovative and forward-thinking businesses and individuals, such as Danny Almagor from Small Giants and Peter Aldenhoven from the Willum Warrain Aboriginal Association. The interactive program will be led by Peninsula food writer and presenter Richard Cornish, and there will be ample time between presentations and over lunch to discuss, ask questions and form connections with fellow food businesses.
The forum is on Friday, May 21, at Tyabb Community Hall from 9.30am-3.30pm. Bookings are essential and tickets are limited to 100, with a discount available for MPP-certified businesses. It’s supported by Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority through funding from the Federal Government’s national Landcare program, Sustainable Table, and Mornington Peninsula Produce – a program of Mornington Peninsula Shire – in partnership with the shire.
