She'll also be sharing Wigan's journey towards becoming the first Incredible Edible Borough.

Attendees will also be treated to a Woodbank Farm Tour and refreshments. 

Feeding Stockport get-togethers are intended to foster conversation, learning and action on a variety of sustainable food related topics. Come along and get inspired!
