Food as a Commons!

Saturday, 22.06.19, 9.00-19.00 

A one-day event of talks, discussion, field visits & feasting! This day-long event is an opportunity to pool ideas, share experiences and celebrate the power of community in growing, cooking and eating food. You are encouraged to book early for this event as we will restrict numbers in order to facilitate an engaged, constructive and convivial experience.


09.30 – 13.30: based in the fabulously re-furbished heritage centre of Nano Nagle Place we will hold a series of talks and discussion around ways we can address and redesign the current food system (featuring European and local speakers).

14:00 – 16:00: we will join the ‘street feast’ that is being hosted by La Cocina Publica (details below), a Chilean theatre group that will be based in the Cork South Parish neighbourhood during this week (Registration will include lunch here).

16:00 – 18:00: we will embark on a guided tour of the growing spaces and greening activities across the South Parish Including St Stephens sustainable food lab.
