Food Futures NL: A Research Symposium - Saturday, May 9, 2015 - St. John's campus

On Saturday May 9, FARM (Food Advocacy Research @ Memorial) hosted a research symposium to take stock of what we know and what we don’t know about NL food systems. We discussed past, present and future research in the province and explored possibilities for funding further research and knowledge mobilization on food issues in Newfoundland and Labrador.


The Future of Food Roundtable – October 22, 2014

The first FARM event, supported by Memorial’s Public Engagement Framework, featured speakers from various areas of NL’s food system who shared their own vision of what our food system will be or should look like by the year 2025. Participants included chefs Todd Perrin of Mallard Cottage and Andrea Maunder of Bacalao, farmers Evan Murray and Mary Lester, food security educator Kristie Jameson, and graduate student Chloe Poitevin of the Too Big to Ignore project (small scale fisheries). They spoke to a large appreciative and informed audience at Pippy Park’s North Bank Lodge.
