Friday 13th September 2013, Glastonbury Town Hall 6.30 - 9pm
Residents of Somerset & beyond are invited to an evening of inspiring speakers talking about the impacts of the global food system, while eating delicious local food.
We will be talking about what we can do locally to ensure that everyone has access to a nourishing diet, to land and to community to learn how to grow and share produce.
Attendees are encouraged to bring food to share for a Local Food feast. The event is sliding scale donation, with a suggested donation of £2 - £15. Join us for a fun & inspiring evening.
You can buy physical tickets from the The Fruit & Vegetable Shop, 16 Benedict St, Glastonbury, BA6
