Thunder Bay Science Festival presents Science Café

February 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

FREE

Science Cafes are a regular conversation series, aiming to break down the barriers between academia and the general public. Science Cafes democratize science, taking it out of the domain of the expert and allowing everyone to voice an opinion. It pulls science away from its usual habitats of the classroom and the laboratory, and into cafes, bars, and restaurants, even theatres, demystifying new developments and opening them up for public debate. Join the Science North staff and various members of the local community in this regular event, to listen, learn and share.

Farm Fresh: Northern Agriculture and Food Systems

Thunder Bay’s economy has been largely based on resource extraction. As it is shifting, where does agriculture fit in? What new advances and practical solutions have farmers adopted for our short growing season? What local and sustainable food systems are already in place, and where is the region headed?

Speakers:

Brendan Grant, Sleepy G Farms
Julie Rosenthal, Ph.D., Formerly of Lakehead University, Aspen Croft Heritage Farm
Catherine Schwartz Mendez, Thunder Bay Food Action Network
Peggy Brekveld, Woodstar Farm and Ontario Federation of Agriculture
