Talk and Community Meal

Kinning Park Complex, 43 Cornwall St, Glasgow G41 1BA

All welcome
Where do our seeds come from? How did they get here?
Gather for a friendly discussion led by artist and researcher Désirée Coral, about the origins and stories behind some of our most common vegetables.
This month we attend to the history of the bean, from its origins as a wild vine in the Americas to the thousands of varieties grown around the world today.
The event will be accompanied by a drop-in Seedy Social where you can browse and borrow seeds, including some special beans!
Both events take place as part of a three course, pay-what-you-can, community meal with Kinning Park Community Kitchen, celebrating all things bean!
Free talk, unticketed, all welcome.
