Food for Thought
learning about food growing and consumption in a city in a climate of change
Enter the °TEMP zone through a large edible gateway into the park like grounds at Corban Estate then join with the Roots Creative Entrepreneurs and local students to creatively contribute to making a portable community garden.
How do we learn to use shared spaces to grow food and the rituals of shared consumption to create supportive and resilient neighbourhoods in a city in a climate of change? The Roots Creative Entrepreneurs will lead this creative food project working with a social scientist, soil scientist and school students to build the entranceway to °TEMP as an semi-permanent edible gateway and a relocatable community garden to allow spontaneous dialogue between like interested people about the challenges facing practices of food production in a changing climate. °TEMP Food puts the focus on learning about sustainable food growing and consumption habits in a city and world under stress.
