Northern Green Gathering 2019

Northern Green Gathering will again be held at Bradley Nook Farm, the beautiful organic farm near Ashbourne in the Derbyshire Dales.

In 2017 Bradley Nook Farm donated its cows to Hillside Animal Rescue to live out their lives in sanctuary, and adopted a vegan organic future. We hope that this will inspire other Northern Green Gathering participants!

Northern Green Gathering is a small volunteer-run environmental/educational gathering focused around sustainable living and green campaigns.

A 4-day camping event with environmental workshops & campaigns, permaculture, organic veggie cafes, stalls, healers & alternative therapies, kids space, theatre & circus workshops, and a showcase of environment living in action, including solar power and wind power.

Earth First Summer Gathering 2019

The 2019 Earth First Summer Gathering is happening at a squatted rural site near Durham.

Five days of skill-sharing for grassroots ecological direct action – make links, share ideas, and get involved in the struggles against open cast coal, fracking, new roads, climate criminals and more, followed by an action on Monday.

The Earth First! Summer Gathering is the place where people involved in radical ecological direct action – or those who want to be involved – get together for five days of time and space to talk, walk, share skills, learn, play, rant, find out what’s going on, find out what’s next, live outside, strategise, hang out, incite, laugh and conspire.

The workshops, networking and planning of actions at this low impact eco-living camp is organised non-hierarchically. It’s run without leaders by everyone who comes along, so come prepared to chip in!

The Gathering will have parallel workshops coordinated as an embedded UK Animal Rights Gathering.

Veggies Food is HereVeggies will coordinate Campaign Catering, as well as a cafe space, tuck shop, vegan cake baking workshops and may host a PM Press Bookstall. To help Contact Veggies.

The Green Gathering 2019

A four day festival beyond hedonism powered by wind, sun and people… just the best!

Educate for sustainability, create alternatives, frolic in fields. Powered by wind, sun & people, and Food by Veggies. Veggies hope again to be supporting a Co-operators Camp together with Radical Routes & others, in the Campaigns Zone.

This year Veggies will be eligible again for the Ethical Caterer Award, having won it in 2015! We are continuing to push forward our minimal packaging  policies – extending the use of proper mugs to serving soft drinks in returnable beakers, to reduce use of single use plastics & straws.  We have now established distribution of our Ethical Consumer Best Buy Burger/Sosage Mixes to many other caterers to help raise their ethical sourcing. We have increased the hemp in the mix and aim soon to sourced our herbs, and possibly our hemp, from Bradley Nook Farm who, in 2017, donated it’s beef herd to all-life rescue and is transitioning, with our support, to vegan organic growing.

We are a time bank, centred on the NG7 area of Nottingham. Members carry out jobs for each other (non-professionally) in exchange for Time Credits rather than money – one credit for one hour’s work. Examples of such jobs include: transporting people and goods, massage, IT repairs, gardening and befriending.

We also hold monthly meetings to organise our activities, and regular social events which help bring us together. We network with other community groups and use Timebanking UK software for our administration.  Groups such as the Sumac can become group members.

The Winter Social is a Members and friends event. Extra visitors are welcome. There will be a veggie buffet (mostly vegan), a quiz and a tomboa.

Details from Skills Exchange Timebank  – Rosie Jarrett: 07984 125239, skillsexchangeng@gmail.com and Moby Farrands.
