Later this evening, there will be a veritable feast of things going on at the Woodlands Hotel:
Futures Forum: Sidmouth Climate Week: Thurs 23rd March >>> >>> >>> What are the impacts of climate change on food production locally and globally?
Refreshments will be available of course, but the focus is on what the guest speakers will have to say on the impact of climate change on what they do - namely, produce food and drink in East Devon.
