The next Hackney Green Drinks is on Saturday 24 March 2018, at St Paul's Church West Hackney, 182 Stoke Newington Rd, N16 7UY (on the corner of Amhurst Road).
- Doors open 7.30 pm
- The film In Our Hands starts at 8.30 pm, followed by Q&A
- The event finishes at 11pm.
There will be a bar and snacks throughout. Entry is free but donations will be welcome - as are volunteers to organise and promote the events and suggestions for future films. So we know how many will be coming, it would help if you booked in advance here.
After an unfortunately long break, Hackney Green Drinks is back! We are now organising the drinks around film screenings followed by brief Q&A sessions with local organisations and campaigners linked to the subject of the film. So the networking opportunities etc are still the same but you get to watch a great film at the same event (although it's all in the same room so when the film is on talking won't be welcome). Events will be roughly every two months.
In Our Hands is the story of a new kind of farm, a new kind of food and a new kind of society. Food and farming is in crisis but it need not be this way. The industrial food system can be replaced and the film introduces a growing movement of farmers and food workers who are creating vibrant farms, living soils, thriving food markets and a fairer food system for all. The film will be followed by a Q&A with a panel of local food growers and campaigners, including Growing Communities, OrganicLea and Vicki Hird, Sustain’s Campaign Coordinator for Food and Farming Policy.
You will also be able to mark World Earth Hour as the screening has been organised to coincide.
Hackney Green Drinks is an informal meet-up for anyone interested in environmental and sustainability issues. Come along on your own or with friends. Find out what’s going on, swap ideas and information, hear about new opportunities and how to get involved - and of course have fun! New people always very welcome. Hope to see you there.
