Supporting (Re)Connection workshop, Thursday 3 June

This uplifting session will equip you with lots of small practical tools and tips to (re)grow your community connections.  The Big Lunch kicks off the Month of Community this year, and it's never been easier to take part with so many ideas for small and simple acts of friendship that can help reconnect someone. 

Everyone who attends this session will receive a free little kit from the Eden Project Communities team, packed with more ideas and resources to help you give something a go, and get stuck in to The Big Lunch and #MonthOfCommunity where you live.  Register here for this free and fun session!

Celebrating our Community - story-telling & craft session, Saturday 5 June

Let's celebrate Big Lunch weekend together, with this family friendly session.  We'll hear some wonderful stories told by our special guest Nandi Jola, to get us thinking about sharing, kindness, and community, then we'll make painted pebbles that are guaranteed to make people smile!  Register here to join in the fun.


Stay up late for our lovely Lunar Lunch, Saturday 5 June

Bit of a night owl? Working during the day? Juggling a busy life? Join us on Saturday evening for a Lunar Lunch!  A relaxed and fun session to share food (virtually!), meet new people, and play some games. Register here for this event.


Cook along with Coexist Community Kitchen for The Big Lunch, Sunday 6 June

Join us this Big Lunch Sunday for a sizzling cook-along hosted by Coexist Community Kitchen.  We'll be creating togetherness and community through the joy of food, but you don't need to be a master chef to join the fun, so what are you waiting for? Register here to start cooking!
