Does organic farming affect the quality of food produced and could a difference in food quality affect human health?
These are the questions to be examined by David Younie an organic farming specialist at the Scottish Agricultural College in the latest of a series of talks sponsored by the Friends of Camphill Medical Practice.
The talk Organic Farming, Food Quality and Health takes place on Tuesday (February 22) starting at 7.30pm in the Newton Dee Café on Old Ferry Road, Bieldside, Aberdeen.
Camphill Wellbeing Trust, the charity arm of Camphill Medical Practice, is one of seven charities in Camphill Aberdeen City and Shire.
Ever since the first Camphill opened its doors in Aberdeen in 1940, Camphill centres have felt a duty of care for the environment, practising organic farming in their market gardens and farms.
Camphill Medical Practice, located on the Murtle Campus of Camphill School Aberdeen in Bieldside, provides NHS primary care services to the local community along with the intensive professional care required by the children and adults in Camphill Aberdeen City and Shire communities in the Aberdeen area.
More than 700 people live and work in Camphill communities in the Aberdeen area and there are more than 100 centres in 23 countries around the world.
