Communal Griddle

The Communal Griddle consists of a series of events hosted in four public gardens, each featuring a local community leader cooking on a stove made from waste materials and utilizing upcycled ingredients. Each event will feature cooking demonstrations, interactive workshops, and live entertainment. The first event will take place from 12-3pm on May 20th at Cesar Andreú Iglesias Community Garden in North Philadelphia and will include cooking by Valerie Banks, a foraging tour led by Lady Danni Morinich, and a talk on the impact of fracking in the Philadelphia region by Meg Leimour. The events will be free and open to all, with the goals of fostering connections and creating space to reflect on the role of waste in our lives.
