Topic: More is more:  can we make space for growing as we grow?

What if more housing didn’t mean less farmland?  Should all new houses and public places have allocated space for food production?  Is our food security really under threat, and how important is the 100-mile diet for the city?

Watch this talk graphically unfold with a sketchnoter recording all the highlights of the talk. The sketchnoter for this session will be Sabina Popin, Meld Studios.

Chair:  Michael Mobbs

Speakers:  Elke Haege, Karen Erdos & Nick Ritar from Milkwood Permaculture
