Tell us your Big Lunch story

If you’re a Big Lunch veteran, or even if you’re a newbie, we’re looking for people from across Wales to join us to share their story about their Big Lunch. So get in touch to tells us about the tasty food, the disastrous/glorious weather, the fascinating conversations and the small things that have changed since, we’d love to hear it all!

Community meet-ups across Wales

In February, we’re really excited to be trialling a new way for like-minded community folk to meet up. Similar to our network events, and the ‘All Things Community in Wales’ Facebook group community meet ups will very simply bring people together in a communal space local to you to chat about what’s important to them, share ideas, successes and advice. If you’re interested in finding out more, and getting involved, get in touch with Sam at sevans@edenproject.com.
