Glass-House Chats are monthly hour-long online spaces for conversation and connection, to ask questions and explore ideas, approaches and methods, share learning and meet others. They are free sessions for anyone interested, and are kept to around 10 participants to allow for open dialogue.

About this Session

Food is the life force of any community, and as our population continues to grow so does our need to produce food. As our attitudes continue to shift around what we eat, how we farm sustainably, and the role that communities can play in food production, we are experimenting with new ways of growing and sourcing what we need.

We are also discovering the potential for growing to bring people together, to work alongside one another, share what they grow, and to simply enjoy coming together.

Through this Chat, we will be exploring how food can connect us to our own and others’ heritages, communities and places. How are we changing our spaces to grow, and how do they change us?

About the Series

The sessions will be chaired by The Glass-House team, who will briefly introduce the theme and then open the floor for an informal and open discussion among participants.

To ensure space for meaningful discussion, places are limited to a small group. Key discussion points will be collated and shared after each session, and Chatham house rules are kept when sharing any points from the event.
