Event Description

The plans for our conference are shaping up. Alongside speaker Martin Carahar, we have some passionate community food workers and volunteers who will be talking about their current projects:
Vicky Sullivan – Creating Health, Somerset, will talk about the roadshow of nutrition and wellbeing events they are running across the county.
Bonita Everson – Red Brick Building Community Garden, Glastonbury, will be speaking about their mushroom cultivation project.
Amy Willoughby- Plotgate CSA, a project which focuses on participation, feasting, skill building and a deepening awareness of food growing and ecological approaches to agriculture.
We also have some of our experienced tutors lined up to run the ‘chop and chat’ sessions in the kitchen. We wil be cooking up a fantastic community lunch!
More sessions to be confirmed. N.B everyone will get a chance to briefly share what they are doing during a ‘soap box' session!

Notebook!

somebody abandoned their careful notes in a grey Guardian Members notebook. I scooped it up at the end.

Maybe a Wedmore person, who's planning to grow a lot of veg from scraps. DM me and I'll pop it in the post or take it to The Swan.
