Local food production and the importance of efficient energy use + Transition Tavistock AGM

Thursday 9th February
Parish Rooms, Tavistock at 19:00 for 19:30

Presentations and discussion: the importance of local food production and links between food and efficient energy use.

Paul Sousek will be discussing their journey at Cottage Farm (Finalists in the BBC Food and Farming Awards 2011 for Farmer of the Year). Cottage Farm (www.CottageFarmOrganics.co.uk) is a sustainable organic carbon neutral farm powered by renewable energy producing organic beef and lamb. London and local deliveries are by carbon neutral transport.

We’ll also be joined by other local producers sharing their experiences including Rosie & Paul Yells from Wonnacott Farm and Laura & Jim from Tregillis Farm.

If you’re a local producer, smallholder, growing out of your own garden or allotment or just interested to hear from others please come along and join us. You’re welcome to bring pictures, posters and/or examples of your produce!

The doors will be open from 19:00 for refreshments and a chance to chat and meet local producers.

The evening will also include TT’s AGM (see Annual Reports). These formal proceedings are expected to be very short!

A flyer is attached and we look forward to seeing you.
