Bob Lloyd and Anna Mackenzie went along to this informative and unusual exhibition. It is thought provoking and in particular demonstrates the value of visuals and research, to show that there are remarkable replacements for plastic, the disaster of crop spraying, the profound knowledge of lifelong peasant farmers and much more. Highly recommended for both a wake-up call and a new perspective.
“This exhibition explores how innovative individuals, communities and organisations are radically re-inventing how we grow, distribute and experience food. Taking visitors on a sensory journey through the food cycle, from compost to table, it poses questions about how the collective choices we make can lead to a more sustainable, just and delicious food future in unexpected and playful ways”.
