Dear Community Food Mapping participants (and those who weren’t there but have expressed interest in the topic),
I would like to thank everybody for attending the first community consultation today at Central City Library (Surrey) last Saturday, April 12.
Deirdre and I are currently in the process of collecting (and collating) all the pictures, maps, thoughts and ideas to share them back with all of you.
The next session (for Whalley) will take place at City Centre Library, Dr Ambedkar Room (fourth floor) on Wednesday, April 30 from 6 to 8:30 pm.
For those residing in Newton area, there will be two sessions on May 10 and May 23 (both Saturdays) from 10:30 am to 1 pm. You can find tickets (free) here: http://foodactioncoalitionswr.com/2014/03/26/community-food-mapping-2/
