IPSWICH: Festival of Ideas and 30-mile Food Challenge- 12 May

Interested in green issues – from fixing your bike (bring it along!) or growing your own food to global concerns about climate change and population? Then come to Ipswich’s second Festival of Green Ideas on Saturday 12th May at the Quaker Meeting House, on Fonnereau Rd, opposite Christchurch Park, 10am-5pm. Entrance is free and the whole family is welcome.

With a wide variety of stalls, talks, films and children’s activities throughout the day there will be plenty to get everyone engaged. Our Local Food CafĂ© will be serving delicious local produce and challenging you to Eat Local. During the afternoon there will be a Question Time style discussion, where everyone is encouraged share their thoughts and feelings on the many issues that the Festival embraces.

Transition Ipswich will be 'launching' our 30-Mile Food Challenge, which will be taking place this September. If you want more information about that - several Transition Groups are thinking of doing a similar Challenge - do get in touch we me as we are more than happy to share our resources (our new website will be going live in early May) and get ideas from others who have done it before.
