The Community Feast
12th August 2022
A celebration of local produce, community and togetherness.
Children in the Taking Root holiday club worked with Diaspora Garden, Feeding Folkestone, Wild Classroom and Another Provision to create a Community Feast for their families and neighbours. At the feast, local grower and baker Chris Foster led a workshop and community discussion around hyperlocal food systems and heritage wheat.
Another Provision is the collaborative practice of researcher Dr. Hanna Baumann and artist Johann Arens. They apply strategies of public art to highlight the need for increased food justice, imagine concrete alternative models and de-stigmatise public food services. Their mobile Community Feast installation can be set up in any location where community food projects want to bring people together.
