Join us for an evening roundtable with Budapest local food and agriculture organizations working with diversity at all stages of the agroecology food chain and across scales. Speakers will share their innovative practices, challenges they face, and visions for the future. The discussion will also offer the opportunity to learn more about permaculture in practice, community supported agricultural (CSA) systems, and participatory research approaches for spreading best practices in Agroecology. The panel guests will offer guidance for students and researchers interested in collaborating directly with practicing agriculturists. 

A short round of plenary introductions will be followed by discussion.
