Feeding Manchester #2

The second FeedingManchester event took place on Saturday 24th October (2009) and continued planning practical ways of making Greater Manchester's food system more sustainable.

The day was split into the morning with updates, networking and two speakers: Kath Dalmeny from SUSTAIN and Jenny Hall from Climate Friendly Food and the afternoon with workshops.

Our first speaker: Kath Dalmeny, Policy Director of SUSTAIN gave a passionate talk on Developing Sustainable Urban Food Systems, while Jenny Hall introduced the newly launched low carbon certification scheme for farmers and growers.

After lunch we broke into three groups and looked at: what lessons could be learnt from Kath’s presentation; how we could develop an effective voice for the sector and how we could get involved in delivering numerous local policies, as well as looking at the development of a city wide website for the sector.
