September 12, 2011 – Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites residents to join an engaging discussion on the ever-evolving landscape of local and sustainable food on Thursday, September 29, 2011.

The speaker night will kick-off with Wayne Roberts, keynote speaker from Toronto’s Food Policy Council, sharing his knowledge of local food and how communities and municipalities can take the “next step” to incorporate local food in a way that is economically viable and sustainable for businesses and residents. A panel of local food experts representing community, farmers, science and local government will discuss challenges and opportunities for sustainable food production in Caledon and the surrounding area.

This is the third year that CVC has partnered with “Green T” in Caledon to support their mission to raise environmental awareness by hosting an annual speaker platform.  Join the discussion from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the SGI Centre for Culture and Education, at 20490 Porterfield Road, Caledon.

Cost is free for Green T members, $5 for non-members. For more information or to register contact Holly Nadalin at 905-670-1615 ext. 449 or [email protected].
