Glastonbury Festival 2015

Veggies at Glastonbury

Veggies will be catering & campaigning at Glastonbury Festival from 9am Wednesday to 6pm Monday, in the Green Futures Field.

We hope to be at the same location next to the wonderful Groovie Movie Cinema, at the crossroads from the Old Railway Track towards the Stone Circle (Sacred Space).

Our crew places are committed long in advance, but if YOU are at Glastonbury you are welcome to hang out with us and support our campaigns outreach in the Veggies Action Cafe!

See the special Veggies Glastonbury 2015 webpage.

People’s Kitchen – Green Festival Fundraiser

People’s Kitchen on Saturday 20th June at Sumac will be a fundraiser for Nottingham Green Festival, followed by a social.

A delightful dish is cooked and served at the Sumac Cafe by a different volunteer team each Saturday. Food is served at 7pm until all gone. The Forest Fields Social Club Bar follows from 7.30.

Food at Sumac is vegan, so is suitable for all diets and all cultures (call to ensure gluten free or other special options).

People’s Kitchen provides a great opportunity for people wishing to show off their cooking skills (whether personally vegan or not) or for novice cooks seeking an opportunity to learn more. Please contact us for more details.

The Sumac Centre is home of Veggies Catering Campaign, so other vegan campaigners are often around for support and information.

Breaking the Frame 2015

Breaking the Frame 2015 is gathering/conference at Unstone Grange near Sheffield, with campaign catering by Veggies.

The gathering brings together a network of individuals and campaign groups focusing on the politics of technology.

If you’re interested in climate change, food sovereignty, extreme/renewable energy, nuclear power, surveillance, military technology, GM food, trade union issues, alternative technologies get in touch.

The 2015 Breaking the Frame gathering is just one week away (9th to 12th July). We have an exciting programme with speakers from RisingTide, ETC Group, The Gaia Foundation, Hazards Magazine, the Open Rights Group and many others. There will be a mixture of panels on issues like gender and the politics of technology, alternative technology, and technology and sustainable futures, and workshops on the technology politics of food, energy, surveillance, health, etc. We’ve managed to combine a packed programme with plenty of time for relaxing in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, and there will be food by Veggies, real ale and evening entertainment. Breaking the Frame is the place to be if you want to be part of the growing technology politics network.

We encourage you to book in advance, especially if you want a bed in the house; however, it’s OK if you decide to turn up on the spur of the moment. We hope you’ll be able to stay for the whole gathering: because we are trying to build the network and make links between different issues, we would prefer that. But if you can’t manage that, of course you’re welcome to come for the day.

Please help us by forwarding this email to friends and networks you are part of.

We look forward to seeing you at Breaking the Frame!

Food for a Future

Food for a Future imageFor over 20 years at Glastonbury Festival, Veggies has invited different groups to campaign alongside us, including Camp for Climate Action, Bicycology, Animal Aid, Indymedia, Calais Migrant Solidarity and many more.

This year we were going to invite ‘Food for a Future‘ to work with us, but their proposal was so amazing we think it would be lost in Veggies cafe space.

We suggested that they go it alone and pitch their ideas directly to the Green Fields team. They said “YES”, so we are excited to look forward to seeing a unique new campaign space at Glastonbury Green Futures, which we think would add something exciting and new to the great diversity of things that already take place at the event.

As well as running this space at Glastonbury Festival, we are keen to invite the Food for a Future team to work alongside us at our many other other green-orientated events on our tour, including the Green Gathering, the Northern Green Gathering and Nottingham Green Festival

They say:

“Essentially we would like to empower people to make green lifestyle choices through what they eat, something simple anyone can do at home that would have a positive impact on the environment. Current estimates for the global greenhouse gas emissions for animal agriculture are at least 20%, which is more than all the world’s transport combined.

Therefore a green cookery, talks and workshop space would be very appropriate for an ethically-minded event such as Nottingham Green Festival. We would like to show people in a creative and interactive way how ethical food choices can create a greener, more sustainable planet.

All workshops and resources will be available just by donation, with any proceeds likely going to Vegfam, a registered humanitarian charity that helps people overseas by providing funds for self-supporting, sustainable food projects which do not exploit animals or the environment.

“We have a large recycled canvas tent, which would be an ideal space for hosting talks, workshops and environmental documentaries. We would like to put together a programme of activities including ‘Ethical Eating Cookery Workshops’, which would teach people how to cook creatively with plant-based foods and reduce food wastage, raw food demos, and ‘Greener World Talks’, which would include talks by eminent nutritionists, green athletes and green campaigners about how a plant-based diet is the most healthy and sustainable for the planet and the issues surrounding this.

“The ultimate aim of our space is to give festival goers a fun, creative experience, combined with information and skills to lead a greener, healthier and more compassionate life. The leading of such a life will benefit the individual, the planet’s rainforests, oceans and air, and its animals.”

We look forward to hearing your feedback.

The ‘Food for a Futures’ campaign team.

Nottingham Green Festival

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 Nottm 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 30 year history.

In 2013 it was great to see a Vegan village at the Green Festival, amongst the 100+ stalls & 5,000 visitors.
