    Event description

    Want to become a more active food citizen? Want to have more of a say in our food system?

    Then join us for this series of three interactive workshops focusing on individual, community and regional action within the food system. Co-hosted by The Food Embassy and The City of Unley, we're exiting to be bringing you 3 amazing guest speakers. The sessions will be packed full of informative content, practical skills, and take-home resources for you to use in the workshop and beyond. Plus there will be lots of time to workshop and contribute to the conversation.

    A light snack and drink will be provided.

    Be inspired, be challenged but most of all be changed.
