In the EAT-Lancet Commission report, Prof. Walter Willett MD from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health tells us that "Transformation to healthy diets by 2050 will require substantial dietary shifts. Global consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes will have to double, and consumption of foods such as red meat and sugar will have to be reduced by more than 50%. A diet rich in plant-based foods and with fewer animal source foods confers both improved health and environmental benefits".

As part of celebrating climate action for The Great Big Green Week, Petersfield Climate Action Network invites you to join a Potluck Plant-based Picnic for the Planet!

We will meet on Thursday 15th June from 18.30 at Petersfield Physic Garden.

Please bring a plant-based dish to share with others.

You will be able to add your contribution to the table, then join a guided walkabout in the Physic Garden, where we will highlight some of our wonderful and immensely valuable plants. We will provide tables, chairs, crockery and cups - so all you need bring is a sharing dish and something to drink. It will be a complete potluck, but a few desserts would be very welcome too of course...

Space is limited so please book a place.

This free, community-focussed event will be a celebration of plants - particularly the delicious ones - but medicinal and beautiful flora too. We would love you to join us to talk about your favourite recipes, growing your own fruit and veg, your favourite haunt for a plant-based meal, and much more!
