Lyttelton, portal to Canterbury’s historic past, a vibrant sustainable community creating a living future

Pam Warhurst visiting Lyttelton

food to share

Pam Warhurst

Pam Warhurst (Incredible Edible Todmorden) will be in Lyttelton Friday 19 February as part of her NZ tour.

Pam's work and approach is incredibly inspiring and she has an infectious enthusiasm and can-do attitude. What her talking at TED here.

This is a co-created event. You are invited to come and spend some time with her. Download the pdf invitation here. 

Pam will arrive in Lyttelton about 5.30pm.

We will gather at the Portal (PL’s space 54a Oxford Street - behind the swimming pool) from 5.00pm.

There you can drop off your pot luck food for the shared meal we will have later and together we will work out an itinerary for a walk around Lyttelton. Some ideas include: Lyttelton School garden, the Community garden, what was to be the police garden, the glass house that PL could be using, the Harbour Co-op, the food forest on Foster Terrace …

Then we will come back to the Portal for a shared meal and to continue the conversations. (If the weather is wet we will skip the walk around.)

Google Pam Warhurst and watch a youtube clip so that you are aware of the work Pam is doing so then we can leap straight into deep conversation.

We encourage you to think about how you or the group you are part of might contribute to making this a significant event - a place to see, a topic to talk about, special food to share …

Pam will be speaking at various engagements in the city - but this is a real opportunity for an informal meeting and sharing.

You can share this invitation around.

It could be useful for us to get a ball park figure of how many are coming - you could let the PL office know 328 9243.
