About The Event
As organic farming and using more local products is an on going trend there are lots of things you can do when you run a restaurant or hotel. But also privately you can choose differently. Are you already making ecological choices in your company? Or would you love to be involved with this? During our seminar you will be inspired. If you want to help creating more awareness for this, please let us know. We could use some extra pair of hands.
With growing concerns about food security and the contamination of both our food, groundwater and agricultural land, the worldwide ecological farming movement is expanding at an exponential rate. Here in Ibiza, we are also experiencing a rapid rate of growth in organic farming, plus an incredible expansion of eco-product shops, restaurants and distribution services. The demand for local and organic food is also rising exponentially, as both residents and visitors see the benefits of eating seasonal and locally produced fruit and vegetables, including fish, meat and dairy products. There is also a call for young people to return to their traditional lands in order to provide food security for a more resilient and independent local community.
