Nation Scale Food Security

On Wednesday last, Hay on Earth focussed the minds of 60 people, including a good number of world experts, on the questions facing us wen considering how to move quickly to a position of community, regional and nation-scale food security. Wales' Minister for Rural Affairs, Elin Jones, joined us for the afternoon and appreciated the quality of discussion and the level of aspiration.

Whilst it is clear that there's no strategic plan of any significant level, there was real demand and commitment to creating a draft Food Security plan for Wales within the next six months to focus on:

  1. Peak oil and energy security
  2. Community-based food growing and skills
  3. Regional level support mechanisms
  4. The role of retail, wholesalers and growers.

The next stage is to convene a meeting involving representatives from the four sectors outlined above, at the earliest opportunity. Contact me via this site if you are interested in getting involved.
