You are cordially invited to a short presentation and Q&A session at The Town Hall on Thursday 19th October, from 19.00-21.00.
A few months ago, we decided upon this presentation (details below), but when the International Sea Lettuce conference was announced, we held back until we saw what was included.
The conference was interesting and helpful in many respects; SOS Jersey hope to hear more about what is being planned as a result, and look forward to being invited to participate in multi-agency discussions on the matter.
You can see our overview of the proceedings here: https://sosjersey.co.uk/international-sea-lettuce-conference-in-jersey-our-thoughts/.
We feel a few areas were not discussed at the conference, and we are also aware many of you could not take the time to be there for the full two days.
As a result, SOS Jersey, in conjunction with The Credible Food Project, Jersey in Transition and Jersey Action Group, will be carrying on as originally intended and making a short presentation on sea lettuce and local ideas to help the problem – and on the other many benefits which would accrue.
Constable Simon Crowcroft and John Baker will open the proceedings, and speakers will include Nigel Jones (Jersey in Transition), Jacqui Carrel (SOS Jersey and Feel Fab Nutrition) and Glyn Mitchell (The Credible Food Project).
Following the short presentation, there will be a Q and A session.
In brief, we will be looking at:
• Sea lettuce: where we are, how we got here, what we can do now, and what we can do in the future
• Soils: regenerative farming – what it is, the benefits in terms of cleaning our waters (and helping combat the sea lettuce problem), food security, public health benefits, and meeting carbon reduction requirements
In this non-confrontational and informative talk, we will be taking the position that we are where we are and discussing what we can do together to contribute to making Jersey an environmentally sounder and healthier place. There are many exciting possibilities ahead!
We look forward to seeing you there 🙂
