    The Co-op is running an “ethical food adventure” on 16 October 2010 together with the Canberra Environment and Sustainability Resource Centre. There’ll be a tour of the newly relocated Co-op shop and then they’ll be offering hearty homemade soup and bread (all vegan), and you can listen to locals talk, sing, dance, recite poetry and join the ‘experts’ debate on the issues of sustainable food production.
