BASE Arts Collective and Avon Gleaning Network present: The Gleaners and I

BASE Cafe Collective has, for a long time, provided filling and yummy Sunday meals, a lot of which comes from gleaned produce – from field and shop alike.

On Sunday 11th after the Cafe’s meal, BASE Arts Collective and Avon Gleaning Network will be screening The Gleaners and I, Agnes Varda’s poem to the waste-saver, the stooper in the field, the bin-diver.

We’ll do a short intro to the Gleaning Network and what they’ve achieved in only a couple of years, saving tonnes and tonnes of produce from going to waste. This produce is then redistributed to charitable food projects who are supporting people experiencing food insecurity.

This is the right time to talk about food waste. At Christmas, binned food usually amounts to 42 million dishes of Christmas dinner…

You never know, you may organise your first bin-dive or glean on the crisp morning of the 12th ;)
