Our final artwork: Resilient local food systems in the Tamar Valley

Issued: Tue, 10 Oct 2017 10:30:00 BST

Local food systems play a key role in the creation of livelihood strategies throughout the Tamar Valley. This project seeks to disseminate knowledge of how local food systems function. In particular, we seek to raise awareness of relevant linkages between soil health, water and food production. It presents, in an innovative way, the role that sustainable local food systems play in the creation of resilient livelihoods and communities. Rosie Fierek’s artwork is inspired by the work that Tamar Grow Local undertakes in the area - stimulating and incentivizing local food production and consumption - and research by Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) researchers Gloria Salmoral and Xiaoyu Yan on water-energy-food nexus in the EPSRC funded WEFWEBs project.

The final artwork is being displayed at the ESI through the Creative Exchange Programme at the University of Exeter’s Penryn campus between 25th September and 26th October 2017.
