A Home Grown Strategy for Island Agriculture and Agri-Food (May 20, 2008)
The intent of this forum is to highlight the approaches taking place that are contributing to a strengthened agricultural and food system.  We’ll examine agriculture and agri-food policy from the perspective of impacts and issues that are felt at the community level. Moreover, we’ll discuss local and regional efforts that contribute to social, cultural, ecological and economic sustainability and the growing consumer demand for food products that are ethically and ecologically produced for Canadians by Canadian farmers making liveable incomes through value chains.

In preparation for the discussion, you might want to read our discussion paper on our web site: www.ibspei.ca
