Open Project Night news

We organised a Having Happy Food Project Volunteers event to 'share ingredients'.  B£ Cafe and the Platform Community Cafe worked together on how to enable volunteers to self manage and enable them to better meet their needs and share their skills. Resources are being shared on a Local Food googledrive. If you would like access please email.
At the Enabling Better Local Food Networking we worked on an electronic wants and offers board for Local Food projects and other digital tools to making the Incredible Edible Lambeth a really affective network.
