This month’s Pulse of Europe/Euro Cafe will feature guest speaker Ped Asgarian, who will talk about ‘Propagating a New Food System: for People and the Planet.’ Brexit will have a profound impact on food and farming in the UK, particularly as it coincides with other challenges facing food production including environmental factors and climate change. The talk will be followed by general discussion with the Bath for Europe community. We hope to see you there!
