Join us for an inspiring day filled with all things food; from growing and eating to making and selling. Meet other students and staff from across the UK who are passionate about growing food on campus or running a sustainable food enterprise. This one-day event of talks, workshops, and networking will help you gain new skills and connect with others.
This year we will be joined by Geetie Singh founder of the first organic pub The Duke and her husband Guy Watson who started Riverford, the UK #1 rated organic shop and veg bag scheme, that recently transitioned to employee ownership. You also have a chance to taste some heritage apples collected by students from Wiltshire College, and enjoy delicious lunch provided by MetMUnch, a dynamic student food enterprise at Manchester Metropolitan University.
