Sun 27th Feb: Islamic Community Food Project (London)
(Qur’ an 51: 20-21)
Next Event: Sunday 27th Feb 2011: Registration details below
Organised by Wisdom In Nature (WIN) with Spitalfields City Farm
WHO IS THE EVENT FOR?
As more people organise from the grassroots, community food initiatives are on the rise. These small steps not only empower, but offer alternatives to the globalised food system that favours multinationals. At the same time, within Muslim communities awareness is growing that Islam offers ecological principles that extend beyond the term ‘halal’. This project aims to contribute to a more holistic paradigm – one that empowers individuals, helps build resilient communities, and genuinely draws us towards a sustainable and more compassionate world.
Through this project, you will part in hands-on practicals, be empowered to co-learn together and engage in grassroots decision-making & organising followed up with action. The project is ongoing, and this event will lead to further opportunities to connect, organise and take action with like-minded participants.
The programme will include:
Please dress for the weather and bring sturdy footwear. Tea/coffees/refreshments will be provided. Please bring food to share for lunch.
COST FOR EVENT: £5 per person. Reduced rate for unemployed/regular WIN donors/regular participants (£2).
