You are warmly invited to the new Creative Exchange exhibition Resilient local food systems in the Tamar Valley on Monday 25th September from 5:30 to 6:30 pm in The Creative Space in the Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) at the University of Exeter Penryn Campus.

Local food systems play a key role in the creation of livelihood strategies throughout the Tamar Valley. Rosie Fierek’s artwork is inspired by the work that Tamar Grow Local undertakes in the area Рstimulating and incentivizing local food production and consumption Рand research by ESI researchers Gloria Salmoral and Xiaoyu Yan on water-energy-food nexus in the EPSRC funded WEFWEBsproject. This project looks at how local food systems function and highlights linkages between soil health, water and food production. It will present, in an innovative way, the role that sustainable local food systems play in the creation of resilient livelihoods and communities.

The ESI Creative Exchange program aims to facilitate collaboration between creative practitioners, researchers and local organisations who share an interest in issues of environment and sustainability.

If you would like to attend, please confirm to Gloria via g.salmoral@exeter.ac.uk. Free parking space is available. Some local food and drinks from the Tamar Valley will be provided.
