LOCAL FOOD RESILIENCE WORKSHOPS    -  Scroll down for Images -

Giving local communities the tools and empowerment to be fully responsible for their own food and seeds, from household to bioregion.

Workshop Description:

In this interactive workshop, Robina uses her powerful community facilitation methods to enable the goal of community scale food resilience for an entire bioregion to be realised. Participants will leave with a rich toolkit of supportive resources to use with their communities and organisations.

As well as assessing and strengthening whats vitally alive locally, we will identify potential new projects worthwhile investing energy in.
Activities include: building co-operation amongst food systems players, creating local seasonal calendars, establishing a bioregional food resource inventory, strategising food security action plans and generating local food economies.
