#You Can’t Buy What I Eat Potluck Lunch
9 October, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm| Free
Sam and Frank (the people behind Green & Gleaned) are so excited to be hosting this #You Can’t Buy What I Eat potluck lunch! These Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) events are being held throughout the country and are a celebration of local food available in the region and those who produce it.
It’s getting harder and harder to create and share a meal together without running into laws that say:
You can’t share an annual farm-slaughtered steer with your family, OR
You can’t grab a bottle of milk directly from your dairy-farming neighbour’s vat next door, OR
You can’t spend the day transforming a pig into a great variety of salami for everyone to take home and cure in their sheds (just like they still do across Italy).
For farmers who want to do their own value adding and sell their produce directly, regulations can be cost prohibitive or criminalising.
That’s why Sam and Frank are supporting the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance (AFSA) in raising money for a Legal Defence Fund – to defend farmers’ and eaters’ rights to collectively determine their own food and agriculture systems! We hope that all attendees on the day will support this cause and make a donation.
Bring anything that is homemade, wild-caught, shed-brewed, fermented, unpasteurised, air-cured or dry-aged. In other words all the good stuff that we all eat but too often can’t buy or sell! And if you’re all out of your own wholesome illicit produce, come along anyway and share in the bounty!
Attendees will need to bring along their own serving implements for sharing the delicacies, along with your own plate, eating utensils and drinking vessel. You might like to bring a chair as well. BYO drinks.
There is very limited parking on the property as it is surrounded by gorgeous bushland, so please make a sincere effort to carpool with as many folks as possible.
