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.
Veggies hope to be catering. If you can help, contact us!
To get to this event, 30 miles from our Sumac Centre base, Veggies may emit approx 40kg CO2.
However by helping an estimated 500 people Eat Vegan we will “offset” 1000 kg CO2.
If ONE customer goes Vegan For Life, they will save 1.5 tonnes CO2 every year, as well as saving 4022 animals lives, and enabling all the world’s peoples to receive a Fair Share of the world’s resources. [refs].
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.
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 and ended the production of frozen foods. 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.
A huge Vegan camping event, featuring outdoor activities, live shows, headline acts, celebrity chefs, global speakers, amazing stalls, international food caterers and much more.
We are vegan, palm oil-free and single use plastic free.
Partnered with animal welfare and education charities, who are actively making a difference in Borneo, Egypt and the UK
