Starting a Conversation with Liz Blakeway: Fostering Connections in a time of COVID and Climate Disruption

March 29, 2022 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Please join Liz Blakeway, Network Director for Land to Table, as she reflects on the challenges and opportunities of network and system building during both the pandemic and climate disruption.

Liz will talk about lessons learned from creating a food system network for the Village of Lumby to better understand the opportunities for food security and Village-owned ALR land use.

Questions to be addressed, include:

  • What does it mean to engage the agricultural and civic community around community identified needs during a time of disruption?
  • How do we maintain momentum, to build on existing community food system goals, while also fostering trust in community wisdom?
  • How does community- engaged research lend itself to responsiveness and capacity building?
  • What role can community organizations and university partnerships play in supporting local government food system aspirations and efforts?

Everyone is welcome.
