Nottingham Green Festival 2019

‘Warning: 12 years to limit climate chaos – share skills to save the planet’

Nottingham Green Festival is organised by grass routes community based volunteers, with no statutory funding. The ethical standards and environmental / human / animal rights ethos of the event are long established, having evolved from the pre-history of the Nottingham Peace Festival from which it has grown.

Nottingham’s own Green Festival provides the place for the whole family to learn, explore and try the latest in everything environmentally friendly and ethical, whilst also having lots of fun in the beautiful setting of the Arboretum Park.

Veggies has catered and campaigned at the Green Festival, and the Peace Festival before it, for our entire 35 year history. We were pleased now to be joined by 10 other vegan caterers and other artisan food producers, supporting the events’ new vegan ethos and building on a thirty+ year meat-free policy.

The Green Festival continues to break all records in terms of visitors & stalls.

This will be the 27th Nottingham Green Festival and with your support it will be even bigger & better in 2019.

You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.

Veggies has catered and campaigned at the Green Festival, and the Peace Festival before it, for our entire 33 year history.

The Green Festival continues to break all records in terms of visitors & stalls.

This will be the 26th Nottingham Green Festival and with your support it will be even bigger & better in 2018.

You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.

Alternative Eid Al-Adha Preparation

“The time has come for all true Muslims, be they Sunni or Shi’a, Sufi or otherwise, to stand up for the universal standards of justice and compassion that the Prophet (sal) not only spoke of (both through Hadith and, more importantly, as the receiver of the Qur’anic revelation), but actually put into practice.”

If you would like to take part in preparations for an Alternative Eid Al-Adha in Nottingham you could think about:

as a vegan/vegetarian alternative option for an Udhiya / Qurbani / Sacrifice in readiness for distributing in Nottingham.

The 9kg suggested is a rough estimate of an alternative to the boneless meat from eg: a goat.

The Nottingham Green Festival is happening at the Arboretum soon after, on September 16th, where the wonderful Veggies Catering Campaign will be cooking up a storm!  You can try out the famous wholesome meat-free Veggies Burgers, made from the very mixes  above to see what they taste like cooked up 🙂

This is just a humble suggestion for people to think about, a coming together that shall find its time

Vegan Eid Recipes!

Here’s wishing everyone a very happy Eid! To help you make this Eid extra special – and animal-friendly – we’re sharing these yummy vegan recipes with you!

All you need to keep the festivities and kindness alive is to replace meat with mock meat or veggies. Try out these vegan recipes, and share them with all your friends.

The Sacrifice of “Eid al-Adha”
AN ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE AGAINST ANIMAL SACRIFICE
by Shahid ‘Ali Muttaqi

“We can talk all we want about Sunnah (tradition and the way of the Prophet [sal]), but if we do so, then let us take the whole picture into account. The Prophet (sal) ate primarily dates and barley, only occasionally eating meat (which would have been necessary at that time and place for proper health, as it was a vary harsh climate that demanded a rigorous lifestyle which was very taxing on the human body). Such circumstances do not exist today for most of the developed world, and the fact is, meat-eating with our current sedentary lifestyle is responsible for the increase in cancer and heart attacks throughout the world.

“Meat-eating (and in relation to it, animal sacrifice) is not intrinsic to who the Prophet (sal) was or to what he preached. And most of the current research shows that humans are healthier on a vegetarian/vegan diet (ultimately proving we do not need to eat meat, and therefore, no longer have any justification for animal sacrifice in a modern setting). Certainly the Prophet (sal), who instructed us to go even to China in search of “Ilm, or ‘Divine Knowledge'” understood the importance of advancing our understanding of the world in which we live and living in harmony with our surroundings.

“The time has come for all true Muslims, be they Sunni or Shi’a, Sufi or otherwise, to stand up for the universal standards of justice and compassion that the Prophet (sal) not only spoke of (both through Hadith and, more importantly, as the receiver of the Qur’anic revelation), but actually put into practice. For those who need to take a life in order to survive, then let them do so humbly and with respect for the life they are forced to take, showing as much mercy and compassion as humanely possible in an otherwise regrettable situation. However, for those of us who no longer need to kill in order to survive, then let us cease to do so merely for the satisfaction of ravenous cravings which are produced by nothing more than our Nafs (or lower self). That would truly be the Sunnah of the Prophet (sal).
