Blackdown Hills Repair Cafe @ Hemyock Village Hall
May 26 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

 

 

Start searching your lofts, scouring your garages and rummaging in your spare rooms for those broken, and sometimes cherished, items that otherwise might end up in landfill. Electricals, textiles, furniture, or other items. On Saturday 26th May, at Hemyock Village Hall, there will be experts on hand who will try their best to lovingly restore them to full working order, all for the “price” of a small donation! This is the second Blackdown Hills repair cafe, after an amazingly successful launch in March.

In Our Hands film showing @ PETROC Lecture Theatre
Jun 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join the Celebration of Soil Group, a sub group of Tiverton Area Communities Transition (TACT) for the showing of the fantastic film, In Our Hands.

There is a growing movement of farmers and food workers who are creating vibrant farms, living soils, thriving food markets and a fairer food system for all. At the heart of all change lies a story, and In Our Hands is the story of a new kind of farm, a new kind of food and a new kind of society. This film has been created as an open source tool in order to debunk the myth of the industrial food system, and be a resource for farmers and activists in building a better world. Visit the film website here: http://inourhands.film/

Love Food Hate Waste Training – Cullompton @ The Walronds
Jun 23 @ 10:00 am – 3:30 pm

Are you passionate about good food? Would you like to support people in your community to reduce food waste? Or perhaps you’d like to help run community meals using surplus food from supermarkets, farms and the high street as part of a Food Surplus Café?

In the UK, we throw away over 7 million tonnes of household food and drink every year, the majority of which could have been eaten. The average family with kids wastes around £700. There is also enormous amounts of good quality unwanted food available from local producers and shops which can be turned into tasty community meals.

There will be another workshop running in Crediton on Sat 21st July if you are unable to make this one.

This day is in two parts:

The morning session will be run by Beth from Somerset Waste Partnership and using lots of interactive activities from Love Food Hate Waste she will help you understand the key reasons why people waste food in the home. She will provide lots of practical ideas so that you can help other people eat well and waste less. You’ll be able to pick up a resource pack full of activities and you’ll be able to borrow displays and equipment from CAG Devon to take to community events.

The afternoon will look at the steps needed to set up a Food Surplus Cafe in your community; from sourcing and storing food, to recruiting volunteers, health and hygiene, publicity and all the things you need to consider to turn a mound of unwanted food into a free meal for the community. For the Cullompton session you will get the chance to hear from Claire from the ReROOTed  Food Surplus Cafe in Tiverton about the group’s experience of how they set up and run their monthly cafe and from CAG Devon about the support they can offer you to set up your own group.

 

For more information about the workshop please Contact Us. Or you can book online here.
