The European Diversity Cereal Festival will be held Denmark on 26-28 June 2019. The event will include parallel sessions of baking and beer workshops, field demonstrations, market place, posters and lectures.
Participants will have the possibility of looking at the field collection of cereals’ varieties and populations from all over Europe sent in by all participants and networks. The Festival focus is on heritage varieties, landraces, heterogeneous populations and varieties bred for organic farming.
Experiences, through posters, lectures, field visits and practical workshops, will be presented and shared by farmers, advisors, producers, processors and scientists from all over Europe.
The event will be in English, but it will include some sessions in Danish. In particular, on June 27th Jørn Ussing from Aurion will talk about the use of network, and how he is using the cereal festival for inspiration and business development (watch here the video presentation in Danish).
