The Wilderness Society Southern Suburbs group invites you to join us for a screening of ‘Fair Food’, an Australian film that shows some of the many ways local people and farmers in Australia are working together to build a fairer and more sustainable food system. This film celebrates change through storytelling and the power of grassroots community coming together to create a better food system from the ground up.
We’re a friendly group of local Wilderness Society volunteers who’re passionate about the protection of our natural environment and enacting change on a local scale, focussing on issues such as deforestation and conserving threatened koala populations.
The evening is a chance to open dialogue around farming and food distribution systems, their socio-environmental impacts, and how you can better source the food that ends up on your fork each day. It’ll also be a great opportunity to network with passionate folk in Brisbane who have similar aspirations, from allied movements working towards greener futures and more sustainable food systems.
We’ll have some locally sourced nibblies on offer and the chance to hear from guest speakers who are local change-makers from the community food movement – including Grace O’Connor (QUT Researcher – Community Food Initiatives) and Meegan Hardaker (Southern Suburbs Wilderness Society)
The event is free but if you can spare a donation to help cover the cost of the food it would be appreciated :)
