Come and join us at the Paddo where we will be watching "Fair Food". There will be a Befriend group - look out for Carolyn with the yellow flags

Australia’s food system is more than just broken: it’s killing us. Now is the time to act, to make a difference – to change the world.

The groundbreaking Fair Food tells the new story of food – how food and farming in Australia are dramatically transforming at the grassroots towards reconnection, towards healing – of the land, of each other. It offers a compelling and coherent vision of how our future can be so much better than our present and our past, and how each of us can act to hasten the process of change.

Told through the experiences of several of the leading figures in Australia’s Fair Food movement, this book tells stories of personal change, courage, innovation and food activism, from local food hubs and backyard food-forests to the GE-free movement, urban agriculture, radical homemaking and regenerative agriculture.

In a time of bullying corporations, supermarket monopolies and environmental degradation, Fair Food offers compelling and inspiring stories of personal transformation from everyday people, showing us that we, too, can be powerful agents of change in this time of need.

We apologise that you will not be able to bring your own food and drink to the venue, you will be able to purchase these at The Paddo. There are food & beverage specials.

We supply some cushions, if you want to bring your own you are most welcome to.

No need to print your ticket.

Children are allowed (encouraged) to attend the event if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. The event is held away from the bar area.

All of the hosts, speakers, staff and the venue is kindly donated. Transition Town Vincent must pay licencing fees to show many of the movies. A donation of $5 on the night would be very helpful, however, any donation is appreciated.
