Edible Public Space
presented by Chiara Tornaghi and John Preston
The presentation will give an overview of food growing projects in urban public spaces around cities of the “global north” and will introduce the new Leeds based Edible Public Space project.
Edible Public Space is an experimental project in food growing in Leeds’ urban public space which aims to:
 – bring back an essential element of life at the core of the urban experience
 – provide a source of cheap healthy food in a time of financial crisis
 – reduce food miles and food carbon footprints, to improve urban sustainability and help tackle climate change 
 – re-define the criteria for urban aesthetics and the social functions of public space in post-industrial and post-cheap oil
 urban environments.
 The cafe will be an opportunity for people to creatively re-imagine their public spaces and be involved in the development of the project.
Free entry, refreshments provided. We encourage small donations to help with the cost of room hire and refreshments.   0113 3681999 / 0793966205
