Event Description

There is a global food system and a local food system. There is a food system for the rich and another for the rest of us. Food – where it comes from and where it goes – affects everyone. Through dialogue and discussion we will explore the myths and the realities of today’s food system and what that means for the future.

Offered as part of the Village Vancouver Transistion School as part of Langara College's Sustainable Communities Summer School

Instructor: Herb Barbolet w/Eleanor Boyle, Thomas Moore, Ann Pacey, and Ross Moster

Herb Barbolet has 35 years of experience in teaching, consulting, researching, writing, and broadcasting. He currently works in food policy research: linking food to community economic development, health and safety, environment, social justice, and international development - from the very local to the global. He was the founder, and for 10 years, executive director of FarmFolk/CityFolk, an internationally recognized NGO.
