Your invitation to MFGN Quarterly Social #1 - Tuesday 4th Feb 6.30pm

In the spirit of fostering new connections and renewing old ones we invite you to join us at our first open quarterly social and information sharing evening.

We'd love you to join us to meet some likeminded people, to inspire or be inspired by the energetic and knowledgeable people in this network (and the cool stuff they're all doing) plus you get to make some new friends and have bite to eat.

We reckon by the end of the night, you'll feel energised and walk away with a clutch of new mates and ideas.

When: Tuesday 4th Feb from 6.30pm - 9.30pm

Where: PepperTree Place, 512 Sydney Road, Coburg

Food/Drink: Bring a plate & drink to share

What: We’ll start with a guest speaker followed by discussion and questions, then anyone who wants to can briefly share an update on their project or items of interest with everyone present. After that we’ll mingle and eat!

Our guest this time around will be Kate Archdeacon who is nearing the end of her research Masters into urban agriculture networks, design and resilience. During her recent fieldwork in post-industrial northern England, Kate saw a city-wide example of urban agriculture that has flourished despite the massive challenges it faces. She would like to talk with MFGN about some of the simple but seemingly effective things that are keeping that program going, and hopefully meet MFGN members who would like to explore these ideas further in a short design workshop.

It’d be helpful to know if you’re coming so RSVP if you can by emailing morelandfoodgardensnetwork@gmail.com (you can also email us here for more info)

Oh, and while your updating your calendar for this event, you should add the other events for this year:

  • Tuesday 6th May
  • Friday 1st August
  • Friday 7th November

(Same time as above, location TBC)
