SLF 2014 Pt 1: Picnic/Film Screening Open Table & Growing Food Project @ WBCG (Sun 9th Feb)


The 2014 Sustainable Living Festival kicks off on February 8th and runs until 23rd and we have a few different events happening in Moreland. Here's our first...

A Twilight picnic and screening of The Growing Food Project


You're invited to a twilight community feast and film screening to celebrate free and fair food in Melbourne. Everyone is welcome!

Food will be prepared by the generous volunteers from Brunswick's own amazing Open Table.

We're hoping to source lots of locally grown fresh food for the feast (more on how you can help with this below).

To cap off the evening we'll have an open air screening of the Growing Food Project a short documentary film that captures a cluster of vibrant stories exploring Melbourne's local food movement and community food initiatives, where people are coming together to build local, fair and sustainable food systems. Written & directed by Rasha Tayeh.

Date: Sunday 9th February

Time: Arrive from 6.30, wander through the food forest and community garden (which feature in the film), dinner will be served from 7pm and the film will be screening between 8-8.30pm

Where: West Brunswick Community Garden, Dunstan Reserve, Behind 49 Everett Street, Brunswick West VIC 3055

BYO: a blanket, something to drink, more of your own food (if you want to), maybe some mozzie repellant just in case

Cost: Nothing (you can make a gold coin donation if you feel like it)

Food Donations: we'd love to use lots of locally produced food for our feast and will happily accept donations of surplus produce.

Open Table will be able to use anything and everything - they are a creative bunch in the kitchen. Miscellaneous veg, greens, herbs, edible flowers, citrus and other fruits, eggs, even honey if someone is rolling in it! Please only share what you have in excess.

We really love giving the fresh produce we haven't used away on the evening in small boxes and paper bags, so there will never be too much!

If you can contribute, please drop your fresh food off at the West Brunswick Community Garden by 2pm on Sunday 9th Feb.

Questions: email morelandfoodgardensnetwork@gmail.com

Here's a little taster of the film to whet your appetite...
