The aim of our gathering in Cupar is to counter the idea that the future of food is always tied to technology and instead explore what it might look like if it was located in place, inspired by cultural knowledge and empowered by food sovereignty.
The problems aren’t technical problems, so they can’t be and won’t be solved by technology. The future of food won’t be solved by experts; it will be reclaimed by us all.
The event will include a facilitated discussion on the future of the Fife Diet (using Open Space), announcing a new Fife Food Co-op and our new food manifesto for 2014.
Downstairs we will have an array of fun activities including storytelling with Mrs Mash; the Seed Truck Mill Bike; a cafe and advice clinic; book signings with Catherine Brown, author of Scottish Seafood: its history and cooking, and others; food prep and tasting! Local artist, Charlotte Duffy (A Waste of Paint Productions), has created a very special pop up shop that will enable us to envisage a better way to buy our food.
The evening meal will be made of the finest local and seasonal ingredients – food that knows it’s come from and knows where it’s going …
Our keynote speaker is writer and broadcaster Lesley Riddoch, author of ‘Blossom, What Scotland Needs to Flourish’.
Please note the afternoon event is completely free, but we do require you to book. We will be asking for a donation for the evening ceilidh.
You can sign up for both here.
We very much look forward to seeing you there!
