Matthew Evans Regional WA Tour 2023
Perth, Margaret River, Bridgetown, Merredin and Geraldton 4-17th September 2023
Join chef, food critic, farmer and author, Matthew Evans at a series of five in-person events in Perth and regional WA.
Matthew Evans, also known as The Gourmet Farmer from the SBS TV series documenting his farm life in Tasmania, has been involved in agriculture conferences, food festivals etc across Australia, engaging with consumers to help them to better understand and appreciate farming, where their food comes from, and how it is produced.
Matthew is an advocate for open, fair, accountable food and farming systems, and has pushed for honest labelling so we can all enjoy sustainable seafood. His most recent book SOIL is a swashbuckling tale of soil that arms us all with the knowledge and respect to care about its health.
About the tour:
Matthew will be in Western Australia for the Regenerative Agriculture Conference in Margaret River (September 6-8) and has extended his visit to take part in food-focused events in regional WA to promote better understanding of the importance of soil health and encourage practice change towards regenerative farming practices across the State.
The events are expected to attract a broad regional and urban audience, with the goal of bridging the gap between consumers and the farmers who identify and support the adoption of farming practices that improve our WA soils, and therefore improving resilience of our farming systems, and communities.
The partnership includes the Institute of Regenerative Leadership, Certified Organic Biodynamic WA, Gathered Organics, Loose Produce, Merredin and Districts Farm Improvement Group, Wheatbelt NRM, Northern Agricultural Catchments Council, Midwest Food Industries Alliance, Galloway Springs, and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.
