Eat, drink, be merry (and meet)

Looking forward to the next Transition Town Wivenhoe Food Group meeting which I am hosting (I think for the first time) this Wednesday.
Food group meetings are very relaxed affairs, we always have something to eat - usually soup plus whatever else the host or others fancy making/bringing. It is friendly and chatty - sticking to the agenda is something of a challenge but we do usually stick to time! And we are a very open group with new members coming along most months.
We aim to promote the knowledge and use of local food and cover any aspects of local food production, promotion and most definitely consumption that arise and are of interest to whoever is there.
There is always a lot to discuss, with the agenda set at the beginning of meetings, and tasks shared out. This month we'll be planning the Open Gardens events on 18th and 19th May in the Station Garden (both days, focus on Sunday) and the Wildlife Garden (grand opening and activities on Saturday), updating on the regular and increasingly popular Farmers Market, featuring transition cafe and barbecue rolls. We also will discuss the allotment, community chickens, apple pressing and pop-up cafe there will be some I've forgotten, and new ideas arise all the time.
If anyone has ideas or energy they want to contribute, or just wants to come along and join in, then they would be really welcome.

TTW Food Group will  be held this month on Wed 1st May, 7.30pm at 3 Sandford Close, off Valley Road, CO7 9NP - all welcome, call Ruth on 825450 for more details.
