Our Food for Thought venue is going to have you glued to your seat this year!
We’ve moved this popular venue to a new bigger location – in the Maleny Arts & Craft Group building at the top of the Festival site. With two days of presentations that will inspire and inform, you won’t want to miss any of the sessions.
- Anne Gibson from The Micro Gardener – growing nutrient dense food in small spaces
- Bev Hand (Gubbi Gubbi) from Mimburi – indigenous food culture – revitalising our bushfood heritage
- Rhonda Hetzel from Down to Earth – nutritious food for babies and children
- Robyn Cook from Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation – what’s so good about edible school gardens?
- Elaine Bradley from Mary Valley Country Foods Hub – collaborative marketing for small food producers
- Robert Pekin from Food Connect Foundation – local food systems: the new paradigm?
- Rhonda Hetzel from Down to Earth – a guide to simple living
- Morag Gamble from SEED International – permaculture in your backyard
On both days, the final session will be a panel discussion of all speakers from that day. The topic on Saturday is ‘How can we get inspired to adopt good food habits?’ and on Sunday, ‘How can we support new food chain relationships?’.
