The Innovative Farmer

UCD College of Architecture and Planning

Farmers face growing pressures between climate change, economic challenges and shifting public demands. To be successful amidst these challenges, farmers need to draw on traditional methods as well as exploring innovative ways to create successful and unique approaches that spark resilience, excitement and growth.

In this discussion, we hear directly from farmers about how they are cultivating practices that are both innovative and ancient. They work as agricultural entrepreneurs to create value-added products by exploring innovative technologies and forging new collaborations.

Slow Food Summits offer the opportunity to explore Where Tradition Meets Innovation and current topical issues related to good, clean and fair food. Each summit starts with a one hour talk followed by a 30-minute social gathering over small bites and/or beverages that relate to the talk.
