The Food Forest Project officially launched ten months ago, in June 2018. We’ve been working hard to promote the organisation, and the benefits that a food forest can bring to local communities. We’ve been involved in markets and street fayres, we’re active on social media and update our website regularly, we write articles for magazines and newspapers, we’ve given talks and created YouTube videos but there are only so many people that we can reach in doing these things. So, we reached out for an Event Manager and found one!
Fern is an experienced events manager, having created and led on many festivals and weddings. She is part of the management team for a social enterprise in Glastonbury, Somerset, and is a keen advocate for sustainable living, agricultural reform and community cohesion. Fern has joined the Food Forest Project to create inspiring events that will help showcase the positive effects of food forests and permaculture on local communities, and society in general. We hope to be hosting film nights, talks and conferences, festivals and fayres very soon, so keep an eye out on our website for an event near you!
“I am so thrilled to be joining the Food Forest Project. I have be an avid supporter since they launched back in June because the cause is very much needed in to days society. Communities are fractured, loneliness and depression are more common. We are also getting more and more disconnected with where our food is coming from, which is why I believe that the Food Forest Project helps resolves some of these issues. I am looking forward to putting on memorable and meaningful events on behalf of the Food Forest Project starting with the Shepton Mallet plant up event on the 30th March. Thank you for welcoming me to the team.”
