The Old Growler

Youth Food Movement: Meet the Maker

In an era where our supermarkets are as close as some of us urban dwellers will get to farm-fresh produce, many young consumers have never been further from knowing where their food comes from. The solution? 

In the bowels of the Old Growler, the event aims to tackle the rising disconnect between Australian producers and consumers, and feed Sydney’s increasing interest in the stories behind the local growers who tend to their farms on a daily basis and make the food on our plates possible.

Guests will have the opportunity to break down stereotypes and pose the short and curly questions, with the aim of increasing Sydneysiders’ understanding of the ins and outs of our local food system and the people who are part of it.

The second event of this small intimate series will celebrate Spring with eggs from Mulloon Creek Natural Farms, Mulloon Creek, and dairy from Country Valley, Picton.
