Focused on SELF and PLACE. There will be sessions with Polly McGee and Diana McShane about how to breathe, rise from challenges and habit change where we need to. The Spring Bay Mill team will be giving us an amazing tour of the full site, including the regeneration of the land, the market garden, the nursery and more.
This first day will be wrapped up with a scrumptious dinner of local seasonal produce, cooked by some awesome local chefs. We love bringing our extended Sprout family together, to the table, to get to know each other or catch up with old friends, while enjoying real food.
Vladimir Panevin, much loved and ultra talented chef who made a name for himself at Franklin and Smolt, before then finding his groove at Ettie's, and now at Institute Polaire. Vlad, is such a likeable human being, we've only met him a few times, but you can just feel his enthusiasm for food. He is passionate, generous with his expertise and humble of his own ability and contribution. He has wrangled a mate to help him, another local likeable chef, Josh Andree from Sunbear Cafe in Hobart, and together with some awesome Sprout volunteers they will cook up a storm for us in the Spring Bay Mill kitchen.
Keynote speaker - Scott Rankin
We will hear from Scott about his experiences through the NFP organisation he founded Big hART, which has been to fifty countries across the the world, delivery projects to regional, disavantaged communities. Plus, he was Tasmanian on the Year in 2018, along side our wonderful Sprout co-founder Tony Scherer, who was Senior Tasmanian of the Year.
Small Producer Award
Hear from Kate Field from Tongola Cheese and Leap Farm, who along with husband Iain, were winners of this community nominated award in 2019. Kate will be presenting the award to the next farmer who was lucky enough to win the award this year, for 2020.
Sprout Producer Program Scholarships 2021
Meet and get to know the producers who were lucky enough to receive the scholarships for next year, when we formally present their certificates.
A full day of exploration, discussion and formative steps for action!
The day will include a panel of people from across the food community in Tasmania who, under the direction of Polly McGee will share with us their thoughts about the Tasmanian food system, agriculture, seasonality and health.
Small group workshops, driven by attendees to problem solve and share knowledge on a particular topic they have nominated prior to the event. Reporting back to the full house, so synergies and shared learning can be realised across all discussion groups, and curious observers giving their thoughts on the discussions they have been a part of during the day.
Who is who in the room
Small group workshops
What are your challenges you have experienced in the last 6-12 months, what ideas do you have about your role in the overall food system, what topics do you want to talk about with others. We will then curate some topics, place you in groups, to run an attendee led discussion.
All groups will then report back to the group, so we can learn from each other, and find synergies between challenges and ideas and solutions.
