Completing the Circle: A Path Towards Nutrient Circularity in Food Systems

January 26, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


Can we achieve balance in the nutrient cycle? In an ideal world the nutrients in soil, such as phosphorus and nitrogen, flow through the entire food system, growing into plants, which animals and humans eat, and eventually those same nutrients return back to the soil, beginning the cycle once again. But in our food system, we are failing to meet the potential of nutrient circularity, leading to an excess of nutrients in some areas and a deficiency in others, causing problems from pollution to depleted soils and food insecurity.

From production to consumption, recovery to waste back to production, the first webinar of the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems’ speaker series explores how we can bridge the gap between our food and waste systems, and pave the path forward to nutrient circularity.

Join us for a virtual panel discussion followed by a 30-minute Q&A session with panelists that are working towards nutrient circularity at different stages of the system. Registration is free.
