Social Gastronomy Gathering


Miami, April 2018

70+ individuals with a heart and passion for Social Gastronomy were gathered together in Miami for a second-step co-creation conference. It all started with a Learning Journey, when the group had the opportunity to experience harvesting organic and locally grown vegetables from Harpke Farm. Then the chance to use them to cook and serve 240 homeless people hosted by Camillus House. After that two immersive days, facilitated by Charles Holmes, prepared the base for the SGM and resulted in the creation of 9 working groups on the following themes: coleadership, Social Gastronomy lexicon, creative storytelling, vocational training, sustainable Olympic Games, Sustainable Development Goals, online platform, resources, communication and content for community management. These learning groups were co-created to help facilitate the great ideas that have started forming.

A big THANK YOU to all our partners that were present and a crucial part of the change!
