Are you passionate about buying local?

Throughout the country groups of like minded people are gathering together to create ‘hubs’ to enable local people to sell their produce. Are Food Hubs purely about food? Not at all! Other groups have grown in different ways depending on what works in their area and what local people are looking for. Many hold thriving monthly meetings where they sell all types of local produce, crafts, food & drink.
 
Kerry Mills from the Seed to Saucepan project at Ashfield Community Enterprise will introduce the topic and lead the discussion. Kerry has been looking into the different models used by Food Hubs in other areas and is keen to find out what makes them successful and gather ideas on what would work here.
 
Come along and discuss how we could pull together all our local talent to create our very own Food Hub in Llandrindod.

Acorns: the once-and-future staple?
Acorns are one of our richest native food sources, and have been a major part of diets across large areas of the northern hemisphere over several thousand years. As food security becomes more of a global issue, should we look again at this forgotten resource?
 
Joe Botting and David Strachan will introduce the acorn as a food source, explain how to process them to make them edible, demonstrate the success of their initial experiments, and tell you how you can join in.

Have you ever wanted to use a gazebo, an extra-large suitcase or a thermal camera? You probably don’t want to buy or store one of these items, but would like to have access to them and many other things. A Library of Things could be the answer! Libraries of Things loan out tools (e.g. hammers, power drills and screwdrivers), household equipment (e.g. ladders, cake tins) and a surprising assortment of other things for a small fee. These initiatives save money and reduce waste.
 
Katja Stevens will be telling us about her plans to set up a Library of Things in Llandrindod. Everyone who may be interested in helping out with, borrowing from or contributing to the library is invited to attend.

A discussion on the steps our local community can take towards becoming more self-sufficient. Come and take part and share your ideas for projects that you would like to see happen, from small gestures to grand designs! 
 
The Llandrindod community has been doing great things to make ourselves 'future-proof''. However, with climatic impacts accelerating around the world, there is a long way to go, and worryingly little time to do it. Our dream is for Llandrindod to become a beacon for sustainability, local food production, and resilient communities. So… where do we go from here?
 
The evening will start with an introduction, then brief talks highlighting potential problems and opportunities in different areas, by Dorienne Robinson (Food), Sam Evans (Community) and Andy Bull (Energy). The chair will then open the discussion, with the aim of finding plans that can and will be taken forward to the next stage.

From small gestures to grand designs, all our activities combine to shape our community's future. The time has come to start taking those steps!
