Discussion Groups

From time to time, Canberra City Farm members organise discussion groups on various topics. Non-members are welcome to attend.

Members are encouraged to experiment with different ways of holding discussions. For example, they might use online discussion tools like Loomio or they might try small group formats. Two groups with four (max) participants in each could easily go to any cafe around town (saves having to book and pay for a meeting room). And smaller groups allow more chance for everyone to have a say.

Upcoming collaborative Canberra City Farm activities:

2017 Food Sovereignty Convergence!

Join us in Canberra on the 23rd and 24th October 2017 for two days of debate, stories, analysis, sharing, strategising and planning, all in the cause of building a fair food system for all Australians! Farmers, consumer advocates, right to food activists, urban agriculturalists, educators, communicators, innovators - whoever you are, wherever you're from - if you see yourself as part of Australia's food sovereignty movement, this is for you!

Food sovereignty asserts the right of peoples to nourishing and culturally appropriate food produced and distributed in ecologically sound and ethical ways, and their right to collectively determine their own food and agriculture systems.
