Event Description

IMPORTANT: please register for your free tickets here.

Here’s your chance to mix, mingle and get a photo with a national, real food hero. Costa will give a talk about the future of local food, food security and more. Also featured on the night:

Produce swap 
Bring your best fruit and veg for what might be Brisbane’s biggest swap

Permaculture Ukulele
Groove to the tunes of the Formidable Vegetable Sound System’s Charlie Mgee

Food and drinks
Grab some slow food and beer and chill out. 

And much, much more!


Costa will be launching RipeNearMe's crowdfunding campaign on the day to take their food-sharing platform to a whole new level (more details to come). We'll be taking pledges and donations for the campaign on the night (totally optional).


Slow Food Brisbane will be raising awareness for the amazing work they do to improve health, the environment and food security, and we want to share those with you. 


Register and join us for an awesome night of fun, entertainment and more:

Thanks for that advice, Alistair.  I've registered with eventbrite now.  It would certainly been a pity to have turned up not knowing there was another place where registration was needed.

This sounds very interesting indeed.  A good idea in a central location.
