Food for Thought - Hungry for Change
Thursday 22nd February - 7pm
£21 per person
Join us for a thought provoking film accompanied by a 3 course meal with a difference!
Did you know, in the UK, we import nearly 50% of all our food ...and then we waste one-third of it.
We will be screening the film, “Hungry for Change” produced by Cornwall Climate Care (CCC). It’s presented by a forager who takes us on a fascinating and inspiring journey to meet people in Cornwall working on ways for us to 'do food better' as the climate changes – from the gleaners picking ‘waste’ crops in our fields to projects growing food in unusual places, and a microbiologist who explores eating insects as a low-carbon option.
Join us at the Old School for a 3 course meal with a difference. The meal will be prepared using ingredients inspired by the film. Some will be foraged, some gleaned, some destined for waste. It will all be tasty and nutritious, just not what you might expect!
Come with an open mind and an empty belly.
The meat option will include venison, and there will be a vegan/vegetarian option. We will be able to cater for special dietary requirements, but these will need to be requested at the time of booking. Booking is essential through the office 01579 370493 or online
To round off the evening there will be an update on the Stoke Climsland Carbon Zero Homes Project.

Partners in life and music, dynamic Devon based folk duo Harbottle & Jonas are one of the most exciting acts on the UK circuit today, combining a love of the richness of traditional folk with their own original and powerful songwriting. Dave and Freya have developed a distinct and compelling signature sound, blending concertina, harmonium, cittern, stomp box, acoustic guitar and banjo with their beautiful and closely intertwined vocal harmonies.
Folkwords magazine said they’d ‘stake money on a bright future’ for the pair. They released their debut album 'Cutthorpe Hill' in 2014 and even had a beer named after it at the launch gig. They are well known for being one of the hardest working bands on the folk circuit and have clocked up an average of 100+ gigs a year between 2014 - 2019. They have been awarded funding to work with the Peace Museum to create new songs using lyrics from the Conscientious Objectors Songbook and in 2018 and 2019 David and Freya led the folk course at the internationally renowned Dartington Summer School.
Well-travelled across the UK and abroad they have undertaken two tours of Germany playing in venues such as REWE supermarkets to 150 people and an 800-year-old church in North Friesland. Harbottle & Jonas have managed to establish themselves versatile in venue, original in song and one of the most exciting prospects on the folk circuit.
