Guest Speaker: Chelsea Pratchett, activist and food enthusiast

Backgrounder:  Requests for new farmer’s markets are being turned down and dozens of empty spaces in current markets are a growing trend in Canada’s breadbasket provinces.   Increasingly, Canadian’s demand for local food markets has outpaced production.  So why the bare shelves in a rich agricultural land?

Chelsea will present a case study addressing current agricultural developments taking place elsewhere that focus on attainable solutions to this problem.
