update: I have decided not to organise a big lunch. Their website won’t let me delete the entry, so apologies if you are disappointed.
Imagine a summer’s day on which millions of us, throughout the UK, sit down to have lunch together, with our neighbours. In the middle of our streets, around our tower blocks and on every patch of common ground. An Eden Project inspiration, the idea is to get your neighbours out for a street party Sunday lunch together on *19th July*. Sign up at http://www.thebiglunch.com
This is an idea that’s been floated at the Shandon Food Group for a while now, so it’s nice to have things crystallise on a date. I’ve been banging on about Urban Farming at DOTT07 for ages, so now it’s time to put my money where my mouth is. Or time to put my allotment produce where my mouth is…
The website’s slow to load and a bit unsatisfying but the intention’s good, and The Ivy Terrace lunch (EH11 1PJ) is on the map!
