An Evening with Jamie Catto: Deeper Roots of Sustainability: Grow the New World from Within

on Friday, 10 October 2014 07:21. Posted in Uncategorised

Wednesday 22nd October Lyric Theatre, Bridport 7.30–9.30pm (Doors 6.30pm)
Jamie Catto, founder member of Faithless and driving force behind the award winning “1 Giant Leap”, will give us food for thought about what kind of food system we are currently supporting, how we might create a new system by fundamentally changing our world views, and how this will lead to real transformation.
This will lead on to the launch of our bid to win a Sustainable Food Town Award for Bridport. This new award will celebrate and continue to build Bridport's commitment to, and passion for, sustainable, local and healthy food for everyone in our community. It will promote more widely what we are already doing well, while supporting the emerging local food culture to also tackle food waste, combat food poverty and incubate new enterprises.
A panel of people passionate about food will tell how their work is contributing to the creation of a sustainable local food system. We’ll also be asking the audience to share their big wishes for the Future of Food in Bridport.
A special pre-event menu celebrating locally sourced produce is offered by the Olive Tree Restaurant to support Bridport’s bid to become a Sustainable Food Town. Please book with the restaurant -£15 for 2 courses for diners booked before 7:00pm 01308 422822.
Doors open at the Lyric from 6.30 for networking, browsing an exhibition of community food projects and sampling Gyle59’s Freedom Hiker beer along with Ford Farm cheese from the Bride Valley. The event will kick off at 7.30.
