During 5-8 October 2017, the Natural Food Conscious Nutrition Group (DBB) and the Tahtacıörencik Ecological Living Initiative (TADYA) are hosting a “Learning Journey”, which is a project of the Mediterranean CSA Network of URGENCI. We expect guests from URGENCI, Terre et Humanisme and FAO, as well as activists/farmers from Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Lebanon, Greece and France, who are working in the fields of agroecology and/or local solidarity-based partnerships (LSPs).
This journey coincides with a meeting which includes DBB’s yearly orientation meeting. On October 7, Saturday, we have a full-day program at the Yılmaz Güney Theater, Maltepe, Ankara: First we wll convene for the “LSPs for Agroecology Meeting”. We expect participations from farmers, producers and co-producers, CSA inititives, NGOs and state institutions. The programme includes short presentations/talks about LSPs, agroecology, food communities, CSAs, farmer’s perspective, urban agriculture, bioregional agriculture, and ancient production basins. Next, here will be a session for poster presentations (instructions for application) and mutual interactions, between our Mediterranean guests and people/groups working on related fields in Turkey. In the last part of the day we will hold the DBB Orientation Meeting, open to public. We will also try to arrange tasting menus for food from our local PGS.
We invite everyone interested in the fields of agroecology, natural/organic agriculture, ecological land management, community-supported production and other local solidarity-based partnerships. Participation is free of charge. There is no pre-registration for the event, although we will be glad if you can confirm your participation on the Event Page, for the sake of our predictions: https://www.facebook.com/events/119386128719485/
