Farmers and food production in Queensland face growing threats.  Coal mining and coal seam gas threaten prime agricultural land in South East Queensland and are increasingly responsible for polluting soil, air, water and land.  Communities are concerned about the potential impacts of genetically modified organisms (GMO) on crops and the growing corporatization of food production and displacement of family farms.  How can we ensure Queensland has a healthy, sustainable food system? And how can rural and urban communities work together more effectively to ensure food justice for consumers and producers?  Come along to this important symposium - join the conversation and explore what we can do to support each other and ensure a just and healthy food future.
