Up!Skilling 2017

The Up!Skilling Food Festival has been building community skills in local and sustainable food from soil preparation through to your plate for the last three years. This year, the Up!Skilling Food Festival has expanded into a four-day event thanks to the collaborative partnership of the Island Food Network and Cape Breton University.

Up!Skilling 2017 offers more seats, more workshops, and more space for engaging discussions and includes a film night, academic conference, food tours, and Up!Skilling’s signature workshop event.
