This spring the City of Stirling invites the community to take part in fun, family friendly events designed to 'rethink' food, water, waste and energy. Join us in the spirit of living locally, feeling good and connecting with the environment.
With a strong focus on food for 2012, the City invites residents to consider what you are eating and whether you are getting the best out of your diet, lifestyle and health. Generation Green provides opportunities for residents to learn about food choices through Wholefood and Mindful Eating sessions at venues across the City. Registrations are essential for food talks and demonstrations.
A series of artist’s workshops, The Journey of Food, are being held at public shopping spaces in Mirrabooka, Innaloo and the Stirling Farmer’s Market for residents to create art out of plastic bags! Sheryl Chant is the creative driver of the project who will teach us how to fuse plastic bags and create an artwork that celebrates the diverse food culture within the City. Don’t forget to bring your plastic shopping bags from home so that they can be fused and integrated into the artwork!
Generation Green includes a feature movie night as part of the program, showing an inspiring story about creating a sustainable and fair food system. Growing Change follows the inspiring story of Venezuela’s response to the food crisis and shows that individuals can take back control of their food, even in very poor, urban environments if the government shows leadership and individuals are empowered to create their own food security. The feature movie night will be on Wednesday 26 September at 6:30pm – bring along nibbles and comfy cushions to relax and enjoy the evening at the Reception Hall, Civic Centre 25 Cedric St, Stirling.
