The workshop was held in partnership with Croydon Council with the aim to inspire Croydon residents to participate in this years Garden Competition which Axis are sponsoring.
On March 18th, Michelle Seale, Head of Community Investment and Kellie Durey, CSR Intern, attended a Local Food Talk hosted by EcoLocal, a South London based charity.
EcoLocal delivers a range of environmental sustainability services designed to help people move toward more pro-environmental behaviours. Such services include their cycling programme which The Axis Foundation have recently supported by donating a Velo Plus Wheelchair Bike. Taking this into consideration, Axis decided to contact the charity to see what other services they offer.
The event took place in Croydon Clocktower and lasted for approximately 1 hour which included a presentation from the EcoLocal host, some hands on group activities and a Q&A session to finish.
The residents found the Local Food Talk very useful as it covered a range of topics including; how you can help tackle issues of food waste, how following a healthy balanced diet can help the environment and what the impact our food choices can make on the economy.
