2017 Event Program



Friday 31st March


Chew the Fat has established itself over the last few years as a unique, stimulating forum for discussion of specific fresh topics related to sustainable agriculture in our region.  In true style, this year’s Chew the Fat will throw more fat onto that fire.

The Talking About this Country forum will bring together local traditional Walbunja knowledge holders, contemporary food producers, a climatologist and a geologist to reflect on our broader agricultural histories. The discussion will weave around topics such as traditional sea and land food gathering, geological histories and impacts, effects of climate change on agriculture, and local farming practices and futures. What lessons can we learn from the past to feed us on future harvests?
Come along, join the conversation, bring a picnic and drinks, free entry. 

  • Free entry at SAGE garden 110 Queen St Moruya from 5.00pm for a 6.00pm start.

  • BYO picnic dinner
