Food Futures

Jenny and Tina are attending the following conference, it would be of interest to all of us, perhaps especially those involved in farming. Please contact them if you would like to attend.

Date: Saturday, 06 March 2010
Time: 09:30 - 16:30
Location: Redcliffe College, Gloucester, UK
Street: Wotton House, Horton Road, GL1 3PT
Town/City: Gloucester, United Kingdom

Newspapers and TV programmes herald the 'end of cheap food', warning us that the global food systems on which we have come depend are increasingly fragile. The cost to other nations and the environment, and the impact on UK food producers, mean that in a few years we will not be living as we do now.
The Food Futures Day Conference at Redcliffe College, Gloucester help us respond by asking what God wants us to learn and how we could personally change and adapt.

We will look at what Scripture says about our relationship with food and those that produce it, and at what can be done to improve global production, food security, and patterns of trade. For those of us who do not grow food but do eat it, we will explore the jungle of food ethics and whether 'conscience in the supermarket' is an adequate response to the coming storm.
Speakers include:
The speakers are Rev Dr Mike Rayner (British Heart Foundation, Oxford), Patrick Mulvany (Chair of UK Food Group) and Ruth Valerio, author of 'L is for Lifestyle'.
The Food Futures day is in association with Redcliffe College, the Church Mission Society, the John Ray Initiative, and the Agricultural Christian Fellowship.
