Tasmania has become synonymous with quality produce and artisanal food producers. The diversity of our food production culture and fertile soils is often celebrated. Yet...
At the same time a surprisingly large number of Tasmanian’s cannot afford a healthy diet. The 2015 Sustainable Living Festival brings together a diverse range of experts from academia, government and industry to discuss what a sustainable Tasmanian diet might look like in view of these multiple, sometimes conflicting characteristics.
Our panellists are:
- James Kirkpatrick- Distinguished Professor of Geography and Environmental Studies, UTAS
- Jarod Santana- Permaculture teacher focusing on farm scale regenerative design and holistic management, Mapali Farm
- Alban Johnson- One of Australia's longest standing wholefood store operators, with a keen interest in sustainability and waste minimisation, Eumarrah
- Louise Sales- One of the founders of Hobart City Farm, spokesperson on food for Friends of the Earth, Honours in Biology, Masters in Biodiversity and Conservation
- Rohan Nelson- Associate Professor of Agricultural Economics & Policy at the University of Tasmania
- Will Bignell, Thorpe Farm
