Acadia University to host “The Farm in Education” Forum


P1110641The Farm in Education: Growing Curriculum in Food and Food in Curriculum
November 6th & 7th
Acadia University, Wolfville, NS

How can education and agriculture interact to create a local and sustainable food system? On November 6th and 7th, the Acadia Community Farm invites you to discuss this question with local growers, professors, students, thinkers and eaters at “The Farm in Education” forum. Come and contribute your perspective as we investigate the interaction between the School and the Farm, and whether or not this relationship can move us into a new agricultural and educational future.

Speakers include Norbert Kungl of Selwood Green (Keynote), Dr. Av Singh (organics and rural infrastructure specialist from Agrapoint), Dr. Soren Bondrup-Nielsen (farmer, biologist and author of A Sound Like Water Dripping), Patricia Bishop of Taproot Farms, Dr. Greg Cameron of the Nova Scotia Agricultural College, David Greenberg of The Black River CSA, Kathy Aldous of The Edible Schoolyard Project, and many more!

The discussions will be held in the Michener Lounge and breakout rooms in the Student Union Building on Friday (9am-5pm) and Saturday morning, then we go to Ross Creek Centre for the Arts for a “Great Meal for a Change” lunch (facilitated by Edith Callaghan, Alan Warner, Cate Trueman, and others) and a ‘Publish Your Own Conference Findings’ workshop on Saturday afternoon.

Seating at Friday and Saturday’s lunch is limited, so be sure to register for the forum early! Our online registration form and tentative schedule are available at the Farm’s website:

    I’m a student from Raanana.

    I have to analyze how much time someone spend on internet.
