Plant / Grow / Make / Eat
2 May - 16 June 2017
This year, during Leeds Indie Food Festival 2017, we’ve decided to explore the vast and beautiful patterns that reside in our everyday, our food.
Naturally occurring and man-made
The patterns and trends in food culture
The cycles and patterns of sustainability in food
There is a pattern in everything, if you look hard enough.
