First Nation’s Enterprise in conversation and action

When

Thursday 15 April from 5:30pm to 6:15pm

Live at the Calyx: First Nation’s Enterprise in conversation and action. For people, place and a more resilient food future, in the CBD and beyond.

Join us at the Calyx on April 15 at 5:30pm – and by livestream - for a panel discussion with First Nation’s leaders Sharon Winsor, Chris Andrews and Brenden Moore in conversation with host Clarence Slockee.

Hear about the enterprising businesses and programs these inspiring people work with and how they are leading the way to help build greater resilience for people, culture and place. Learn about what they, and their enterprises, do to support youth, culture and their communities, and the role they play to help seed and grow more urban greening, urban agriculture and greater resilience for all. Listen, learn and be inspired about action you can take where you live and work to help grow a more inclusive, sustainable food future.

Our beautiful city and country are home to precious biodiversity and native plants that provide food and habitats for the birds and animals we love. We humans can also enjoy many of these delicious native foods and flavours and increasingly we ‘are’ thanks to First Nation’s enterprise leaders who share their knowledge and passion to make more native plants, fantastic foods and other products available that utilise native plant ingredients in ways that connect people, place, culture and country.

Wherever we live and work, we can all support our biodiversity and its recovery after the 2019/2020 fires in the Greater Sydney Basin. Knowing what native food plants we can grow, eat, protect or forage for in the city and suburbs is all part of the picture, as is supporting Indigenous enterprise, lead by people who understand place, plants and people and the respectful, right ways to develop native food industries.

This event received a City of Sydney grant or sponsorship.
