As part of Fair Food Week, Transition Coburg and Coburg Farmers Market will be hosting the big three candidates for the seat of Wills:
- Kelvin Thomson (ALP)
- Tim Read (Greens)
- Shilpa Hegde (Libs) (unconfirmed)
They'll be invited to pitch their policies to the captive audience on issues surrounding food security, food sovereignty and agriculture.
We expect them to start from about 10 or 10.30 and the speakers will also participate in a Q and A session.
The questions will be collected over the next few weeks from various community groups and collated then presented (perhaps by members of the audience) on the day.
Sam and Aaron from Transition Coburg will be renovating the schools kitchen garden with recycled timber from the school wood pile.
We have a big white tent which will (so far) be housing representatives from TT Coburg, Peppertree Place, the Moreland Food Gardens Network and maybe Robinsons Reserve who will be telling their respective stories.
We hope it will be a great day and have entertainment and a lucky gate prize planned to draw a crowd.
When: Saturday 24th August between 8am-1pm
Where: Coburg Farmers Market, Coburg North Primary School, O'Hea St, Coburg
Entry to the market by Gold Coin Donation.
