Next event: How sustainable is the food we eat?

Join us on Tuesday 3rd November (next Tuesday) for a talk by our very own Tim Burns on the sustainability of our food supply.

For many of us, making choices about food when we go   shopping is fraught with difficulties – Tim will be providing the low down on our agricultural system as well as considering what the future might hold.  He will also provide some practical hints on what we could do to shop more sustainably.

The talk will be held at Trinity United Reformed Church, Beaconsfield Road, St Albans (near the City Station) at 7.30 pm.  Tickets £3 (concessions £1) on the door.

This event launches our Autumn series on food.

The series continues with the showing of The Power of Community on 24th November, also at Trinity URC.  This inspiring film looks at how Cuba survived its own energy crisis and began to grow much of its own food (today 80% of the food consumed within Cuban cities is grown within the city limits).  Tickets £3 (Concessions £1).

Our final event is an Open Space workshop looking at practical ways we can grow more food locally on Saturday 28th November 10.30am -2.30pm.  This will be held at Marlborough Road Methodist Church Hall, St Albans.  Tickets £4 (concessions £2).  A basic lunch will be provided but please bring some food to share.
