The ninth DO SMITH event is taking place at our offices on 17 April, when we’ll be focusing on suggesting solutions to a particularly interesting problem facing The Community Farm.
The farm, a Community Benefit Society with 500 members, grows and sells organic vegetables wholesale and through a 400 customer box scheme to fund their community engagement activities. They aim to create a sustainable model of farming, replicable by others, that feeds its local community. They are motivated by change to the food system and long-term food security.
We will also hear from our most recent DO SMITH social entrepreneur Jeff Hill from The Childrens Scrapstore on what happened at the last event and an update.
There will be plenty of ‘Feel good food’ courtesy of Friska, who are sponsoring the food for this event. Based on previous events, it will be an enjoyable few hours with like-minded business owners and social enterprises.
We look forward to welcoming the following entrepreneurs:
Griff Holland from Friska Food.
