F2P Exchange 2021 in Scenic Rim
Renewal, Beginnings and Opportunities
Farm2Plate Exchange 2021 will highlight Scenic Rim’s growing reputation as a clean and sustainable food producer and a fascinating agritourism destination.
The flourishing region creates an inspirational backdrop for the agrifood networking conference, exploring themes of RENEWAL and the future of farming in Australia. Scenic Rim continues to demonstrate how communities are able to adapt and persist through changing circumstances, finding opportunities after disaster.
It is the people—and how they adapt— which is at the heart of building resilient communities. Confronting challenging issues and taking responsibility for the future of the collective takes courage and collaboration, an approach clearly evident in Scenic Rim.
Regionality Managing Director, Rose Wright, said the region demonstrated great resilience and community spirit after facing more than their fair share of adversity.
“In the face of drought, devastating bushfire and floods, and now Covid-19, this remarkable place has shown enormous optimism,” she said.
“A fierce community spirit is clearly evident here in an ongoing collaborative local food strategy and signature regional event, Scenic Rim Eat Local Week. In the face of the pandemic restrictions, the local Council and producers launched a ‘farm-to-front door’ Scenic Rim Farm Box concept as a response to the cancellation of this much-loved event, and to provide much needed economic support to its local producers.“
Farm2Plate Exchange 2021 in Scenic Rim next May will celebrate the strength and courage of food producers in this area. Many businesses have prospered over the past decade through adapting farm business with diversified income streams after taking part in agritourism business development programs with Ms Wright.
Scenic Rim offers a variety of different attractions and businesses from farms, restaurants and wineries to bed and breakfast accommodation and breweries. We encourage our Farm2Plate Exchange delegates to stay long enough to explore the region situated about an hour’s drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Based in a different destination every year, Farm2Plate Exchange is organised by Regionality, an independent authority on agritourism, farm and regional food innovation systems. The event provides a platform for the development of greater knowledge and deeper understanding of solutions and better approaches to common problems from farm to plate.
