On February 13th at noon, Octopus Books has invited Paul Slomp, the farmer behind Grazing Days to speak at an event called: Growing Food in a Hungry World – A Farmer’s Perspective.
Description: The politics behind food and agriculture in today’s world seem to be diverging. On the one hand farmers are encouraged to keep up with the latest technologies in order to increase their production to feed a rapidly growing world population. On the other hand there is an increasing demand by eaters for organic foods grown and raised in their locality. What is behind these two diverging messages? What does this mean for the future of food and agriculture?
We invite you to attend! Here are the details:
