Feeding Manchester #8

 

FeedingManchester #8 took inspiration from a spectrum of sustainable food pioneers from local guerilla gardeners to Incredible Edible Todmorden, to the campaign to stop global food speculation.

Along with the usual mix of socialising and networking the event offered something for everyone involved in Greater Manchester's sustainable food movement.

The agenda included a discussion about the recent Manchester Food & Drink Festival, what we collectively focus on next and invited inspiration from across the world for our Sustainable Food projects with the following speakers:

  1. The global Campaign against Food Speculation. World Development Movement.
  2. Sustainable Food Systems – Inspiration from Spain. Helen Woodcock, Kindling Trust.
  3. Community Food Growing. Mary Clear from Incredible Edible Todmorden
  4. The New Diggers Reclaiming the Land. Ashton Allotment Action.
