Urban Food Fortnight 2013

In September 2013, London feasted on the fabulous local produce being grown, produced and cooked on its doorstep. This second Urban Food Fortnight began on Saturday 14th September, at a host of different venues and settings across London with exciting events highlighting the amazing food being grown, produced and eaten in London.

Special ultra-local menus from some of London’s top restaurants, pop -up events, supper clubs in growing spaces and allotments, botanical cocktail nights, foraging walks and urban cookery classes were just a few of the activities.

Urban Food Fortnight in 2013 was a creative collaboration between Ethical Eats and Capital Growth, London’s food growing network and was supported by Slow Food London and Grub Club.

Note: Many of the events could be booked via Eventbrite - links have now been removed.

Free Public Screening of In Transition 2.0

Saturday 28 September, from 6:30pm to 9:00pm

In a world that is awash with gloom, here is a story of hope, ingenuity and the power of growing vegetables in unexpected places. If you live in E10 or E11, you'll almost certainly have heard of some of Transition Leytonstone's local food growing initiatives. Last year they cleared a patch of unloved wasteland near Leytonstone Station car park - it's now a productive and popular permaculture site, The Church Lane Community Garden. They're also partnering with OrganicLea, running the Community Local Produce stall every Saturday outside Matalan. Currently they're exploring the potential of working with local schools and setting up a GardenShare scheme.

A friendly brainstorming discussion will take place after the film. You'll find it much easier than you think to change the world, one plant at a time...with others!
