Food Security Nanaimo Townhall with Chris " Farmer" Brown RSVP now

Join us and Guest Speaker Chris “Farmer” Brown to discuss how we can lead the way to an agricultural model that works for people before profit. Be part of this engaging and important Town Hall forum via Zoom.

British Columbia, Vancouver Island and Nanaimo can do much more to encourage and develop local food production and distribution

Vancouver Island once grew enough food to feed its residents. Increased population with its accompanying loss of farmland, the rise of “big food” farming and distribution, and the COVID-19 shutdown has clearly demonstrated the vulnerabilities in the system. Join us in this vital and timely Town Hall Forum with Vancouver Island agricultural expert and farmer Chris Brown.

Guest Speaker: Chris “Farmer” Brown

Chris, widely known as Farmer Brown, is a local farmer and agriculturalist who has been involved in the agricultural industry for nine years. He is well-versed in issues and concerns surrounding food here in Nanaimo and across the island. He sees viable solutions and potential opportunities for the present and the future. Chris will lead discussions about the current challenges in the farming industry, the opportunities he sees for our community, and what we can do to support and promote sustainability in agriculture for our community and the island.
