Because food is our energy

Albi, France

Drinking and eating is totally part of our life and espacially in Albi, France, where gastronomy is part of our culture and our way of life.

You will have the chance to live a wonderful experience by building a shared garden and talking about different urban ways of food production. Low-tech and high-tech will be highlighted in several mini-conferences and round table, in order to understand how fablabs are helping to create a greener agriculture, self-sufficiency, frugal innovation for food and agriculture and urban farming. 

Also, touristic moments are planned to mix city discovery and french gastronomy.

Activities

Is French gastronomy really mean croissants, snails, frogs and champagne ? What’s true, what’s only in our dreams ?

Let’s explain you how we live by experiencing a unique immersion during a week-end. Hosted by a maker’sfamily, you’ll meet our maker community and several local projects. Our main objective is to make you taste everything, including our life style !

Conferences, Meetings and Talks : You will have the opportunity to meet people and partners during meetings and conferences on related topics during the event.

Workshops : You will have the opportunity to work in groups with external speakers around the theme of agrofood transition. A detailed schedule will be online soon

Tourism : During these two days, we invite you to discover the town, its surroundings and their cultural and gastronomic diversity thanks to agrotouristic tours reaching for example Saint-Affrique (Roquefort area).
