Bring together the collective passion and experience of practitioners within the food industry.Today’s industrialised food system is a major contributor to climate change, widespread environmental damage, and generates huge wastage. However, with an awakening consciousness around minimising one’s impact and environmental footprint, the concept of a circular economy has huge promise for both consumers and businesses alike to reverse and mitigate the downward spiral towards irreversible damage.As a launch event for Garage Society's new season of the Garage Greens Urban Farming Experience at Garage Academy, a knowledge-sharing platform of Garage Society with a mission to nurture the leaders of the new generation workforce. We want to bring together the collective passion and experience of practitioners within the food industry, across the different stages of the food cycle and to explore and investigate the challenges and solutions towards creating a more circular lifestyle around food.
