The 2018 Great Southern Sustainable Living Festival Program has a few cool new events this year.
'Eat the City'- seriously what is this all about? (Brought to you by Community Food Events)
“There are only nine meals between mankind and anarchy.” (Alfred Lewis.)
A provocative lock-in style participatory workshop centred upon the fictional (but entirely possible) premise that the food supply chain to the Great Southern region has broken down, exploring our communities responses and creative solutions to the food crisis. (Interested? contact Evelyn, at Community Food events email@example.com
