Event description

Description

Join our inspiring community food conference! This is an opportunity for those working and volunteering in community food projects to reconnect and make new connections.

The conference will open with Martin Carahar, Professor at The Centre for Food Policy at City, University of London, who is passionate and knowledgeable about a wide range of food issues. We also have a fantastic line-up of enthusiastic community food people who will be speaking about their current work, including:

  • Bonita Everson - Red Brick Community Garden, Glastonbury
  • Vicky Sullivan - Creating Health, Somerset
  • Amy Willoughby - Plotgate CSA, Barton St David
  • Phil Sharrat - Somerset Local Food / Somerset Local Food Direct

Part of your day will involve 'chop and chat' (and for some washing up!). You will help to prepare our home-cooked community lunch, facilitated by our experienced cooking tutors. There will be plenty of opportunity to talk with other participants. After lunch, tell everyone gathered about your current work in a 2-minute sound bite in our ‘soap box’ session.

We have set up a Facebook / event page, where you can find out more about our speakers, projects and how the day will run. You can also organise lift shares through this page.

Our home-cooked healthy community lunch will be vegetarian. Please notify us regarding any specific dietry requirements e.g. gluten-free, vegan etc. - info@somersetcommunityfood.org.uk

Our event is free, spaces are limited and we have catering to organise, if you are unable to attend please let us know and / or pass on your ticket to someone else. We look forward to seeing you on the day!
