Food and agriculture remains a subject of ongoing interest and importance. The Church of Scotland’s Church and Society Council is preparing a report for the General Assembly in 2012 and in February 2011 invited a range of experts to a conference to help it explore these concerns and learn more about the issues. The purpose of the conference was not to provide firm answers but to help shape the thinking of the Council in preparing the report. In particular the Council is interested to explore the question ‘What can congregations do?’ This report briefly summarises the conference and its conclusions. If you would like to contribute ideas and comments, please contact Adrian Shaw. Thank you very much.
