Using social and ecological systems theory to build resilient local food systems

Speakers: Simon Platten (Tamar Grow Local CIC), Rachel Kaleta (Eden Project Learning)

Tamar Grow Local uses social and ecological systems theory to inform its work to increase local food production. Here we aim to discuss: adaptive cycles as a framework to describe the rich history of horticultural production in the Tamar Valley; construction of a local food network founded on learning from ecosystems research – Tamar Grow Local case study; building greater resilience into community food enterprises and the networks which support them.
