For the last three years we’ve been working on a Local Grain Economy for Aotearoa. This is because, despite growing some of the highest quality grains, we import over 70% of our milling wheat. We could easily grow 100% of it ensuring food security at a time of global disruption.
Along the way we’d foster better connection and returns to our farmers, create better environmental outcomes including less emissions and learn more about feeding ourselves with nutrient dense food.
But to do this we have to pull all parts of the grains system together to iron out the bumps; seed breeders, scientists, farmers, millers, bakers, pastry chefs and eaters. And so we did.
Tune in and become part of this movement, your daily staples never tasted so delicious!
We’ll be sharing more details of the day on our social media (@eat.newzealand) but the best way to engage is to get your hands on the recordings and watch them at your own leisure.
Purchase tickets to view the full day of recordings from the Eat NZ Grains day here.
If you missed it, you can also watch the recordings of the Eat NZ Hui 2022 here.
See the session overview of topics/speakers from the Grains day here and the Hui here.
I missed the Grains Day - but I'd like to watch the recordings.
