    Talk on future food supply, 5 Feb 19:30

    The next event of Transition Town Sevenoaks (TTS) will be a talk on future food supply, by Dr Howard Lee of Hadlow College near Tonbridge, plus discussion involving a panel of local farmers.

    The UK's agricultural system is heavily dependent on oil - as of course are food imports. Can that be sustainable against the twin impacts of the end of cheap oil and rise in energy costs, and the effect of climate change on food production? What can we in Sevenoaks district do about it?

    At Sevenoaks Library, 19:30-21:30. Tea, coffee, water provided. No charge (despite what it says in the Chronicle events listing!).
