"Food as Common Language" an evening with gardeners, designers & developers

A few months ago, we were joined by guest speakers Shawn Ashkanasy & Justin Hutchinson from Urban Commons and Liam Wallace from hip vs Hype

This cross-disciplinary gathering was a fun showcase of how food intersects with so many aspects of our lives.  As you know, MFGN members come from a range of disciplines including health & nutrition, community gardeners, local government, education & not-for-profit organisations... this time, two designers & a developer were added to the mix!

Our guest speakers gave examples from their work, where food-sensitive urban design aims to realise a healthier & sustainable environment.  We considered questions like; 
- how do people access & share food?
- how do we design around food?
- how do we create a liveable city?
