    When: Thursday 30th March 2017, 9.30am – 5pm

    Where: Unit C1 Thriveability Hub, Northover Buildings, Glastonbury, BA6 9NU

    What: Confused by nutrition information and ‘what’s good or bad for you’? This day school will explore the links between food, health and well-being, demystifying nutritional concepts and science, and emphasising a sustainable and pleasurable approach to feeding ourselves.

    You’ll learn the nutritional science around healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, ‘superfoods’, fibre, blood sugar, food and mood, and more. We’ll discuss problems with our current food system, and think of ways to improve how and what we eat.

    The emphasis is on plant-based nutrition, but not exclusively. The class will be a mixture of
    presentations, activities, groupwork and discussion, handouts, plenty of breaks, and a potluck veggie lunch to share.

    About the Tutor: Isy Schulz is a qualified nutritionist (BSc Human Nutrition) with a catering and community food organising background. Trained as a ‘Well Now’ health facilitator and co-author of the cookbook ‘Another Dinner is Possible’. Isy’s interests lie with sustainable food production, inventive plant-based whole food cookery, and improving our current food system.

    Cost: The course costs £35 (there are some subsidised places).
