More than 80 people at Good Food For Everyone Forever

Over 80 people attended Good Food For Everyone Forever - an evening of Speakers and Local Food Feast that took place on Friday 13th September 2013.

People from across Somerset and the South West brought food to share, including soups and stuffed marrows, local chutnies, home grown salad and more. Everyone ate together while listening to speakers.

Nicole Vosper started the evening by talking about Incredible Edible Somerset and what people are doing all over the county to change the food system in Somerset. See her presentation here.

Louise Brookes from Feed Avalon, then talked about what resilience looks like and how she has created a social enterprise locally to make this vision of a sustainable food system a reality.

Hannah Thorogood, farmer, permaculture designer and teacher from Lincolnshire then talked about Regenerative Agriculture and some of the amazing practices from around the planet that are regenerating soils, farms and communities.

Finally, Colin Tudge, keynote speaker commanded attention as he ripped apart our current industrial agricultural model that is failing and talked about the agrarian renaissance necessary to start feeding people without harming the planet. He also mentioned his projects the Campaign for Real Farming, the College of Enlightened Agriculture and the Oxford Real Farming Conference, which is coming up again next year.

Overall it was an inspiring and moving evening - both bring together people that care, as well as hearing passionate speakers talking about the change they wish to see in how we feed our communities.
