Local Foods Feast 2

Friday, August 19th
Continuing the Conversation!
Tapping into the potential of local food Enterprise // Potluck

On July 10 we had our first ever Local Food Feast - a gathering of community gardeners, school gardeners, urban farmers, educators, farmers market organisers, chefs, social enterprise champions and more came together at the XCHC for a conversation about what we could do more, together. It was clear that there was appetite for a lot more so we're now putting on a second event!

We'll start with a brief presentation by Food Resilience Network coordinator Chloe Waretini sharing reflections from the conversation on July 10, and a compelling opportunity on the horizon.

Then we'll share food (potluck dinner) and have time to socialise and get to know each other before hearing from other people in the room about what they want to bring forward.

5pm XCHC bar opens
5:45pm Brief presentation
6:30pm Shared dinner
6:30pm Sharing of Passions, Gifts, Desires
7:30pm Discussion and next steps

1. Two plates. One to eat off and one with your most authentic, local and seasonal food to share. We'll provide cutlery!

2. Your Passions, Desires and Gifts for a stronger local food economy. What passion brings you alive about local food? How do you desire to work together more? What gifts can you share with the community?
