Idea #1 – urban farming

Monday, February 15th, 2010

One idea and a thought before I go to bed: “Paris, just one century ago, grew more than 100,000 tons of crops; it ended up with so much that the surplus was shipped to London”.

Pig Business

Friday, February 12th, 2010

There is, hopefully, going to be a screening of the film Pig Business, with speakers, a discussion, and a roasting pig.

The film is about factory farming and the impacts it has. This is to be the first Ideas & Information event, chosen to be the first because I thought it would be reasonably simple to organise a film screening. I thought that if there was food it would encourage people to come along, and if there were notable speakers and a discussion it would be more of an event rather than simply a film screening.
