Event description

Description

Come join us at the Ponoka Legion and enjoy an information packed seminar about Social License and Farm Direct Marketing Agricutlurual products. Over the past few years, agriculture has been a target for a lot of different social movements that have caused many producers to change the way they produce food, you name the coin term and it fits here. This workshop is not meant to discredit or counter social trends or food preceptions. It is a seminar to broaden the agricultural communities understanding of how these terms, movements, idealogies fit within the social aspect of producing food. We'll hear from Dr. Ellen Goddard from the University of Alberta, as she discusses trust in the consumer food system, and how to build that trust. She'll also talk about Social License. Thats a term that gets thrown around a lot, but few can define it. Dr. Goddard will shine some light on how Social License affects you.

We'll also hear from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. They'll discuss the many different avenues a producer can supply locally or source locally. A producer/small business panel will assemble at the end to provide opportunity for our attendees to ask their burning questions. These individuals are local producers and small business owners that either purchase from local suppliers or supply to local businesses. These individuals are building local support and trust in their products. It will be a great opportunity to engage with these local individuals as others may decide to produce local or source local to build their businesses. If social license and acceptance of agriculture affects you, this seminar may help guide you in future decision making for your business or farm. Its an opportunity to unit urban and rural, for the discussion of food.

Lunch will be provided at the Legion.
