  • a smaller bonus event in the Spring, possibly in April soon after Easter.
  • an online event in place of the real world event on Sunday 13th September 2020.
  • an outreach/information stall for the Green Festival community at Sneinton Market, possibly monthly from Saturday 4th July.

Nottingham Green Festival 2020 – Postponed

‘Warning: time is running out 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 in .

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.

Before the covid-19 crisis the Green Festival continued to break all records in terms of visitors & stalls.

With your support the 28th Nottingham Green Festival will return bigger & better on Sunday 12th September 2021.

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

Sumac Centre Anniversary

sumac/images/dovelogo.gifNottingham’s Rainbow Centre opened at 180 Mansfield Road on 9th September 1985, the co-operative having been established on 9th April 1984 by campaigners for peace, animal rights, human rights, civil liberties and the environment. /moving/oldrainb.jpg

 


Veggies Catering Campaign (established 18th October 1984) moved in from Earthwise (the FoE Shop next door) when it closed, later taking on the day-to-day running of the centre.

From the Rainbow Centre base plans were hatched for the purchase of a permanent campaign base, which was opened as the Sumac Centre, in Forest Fields/New Basford on June 22nd 2002.

Full event details at http://www.veggies.org.uk/moving/schnews.htm.

Community Food Hub

Drop-In Every Wednesday & Sunday 11am – 2pm . Collection or delivery every day by arrangement.
We have converted the Sumac Centre into a hub for the distribution of foods around our community, for those isolated at home or those that wish to distance themselves from the madness of Tesco & Asda.

Goods can be ordered from the stock list and order form by email to sales@veggies.org.uk, for collection from Sumac Centre or delivery to about one mile radius. There is a drop-in facility between 11am & 3pm on Sundays and Wednesdays.

You are encouraged to collect for isolated, at-risk, frail or elderly friends and neighbours too.

Many items come from bulk supplies, weighed to order. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in reusable containers.

We are baking wholemeal, sour dough and gluten free bread, and have flour and yeast available for home baking.

We have a system for the safe handling of cash, with a separate supply of clean coins for change.  We’re working on payment by bank transfer, paypal or card too.

We aim to stock ethically sourced, wholefood, fair-trade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods. However we can match supermarket prices and can defer payment for those that have no income. We invite donations to a fund to cover this.

We also are redistributing donated foods, and foods from businesses that have had to close. If you have surplus foods to share, please contact us.

Everything that we stock is vegan and therefore suitable for most dietary, cultural & religious preferences. Gluten free items are also available.

As we are volunteers with limited capacity we are concentrating on Forest Fields (NG7-6) & New Basford (NG7-7).  Local Mutual Aid Networks may be able to help if you need delivery further afield.

Roots Natural Foods (Sherwood), The V Spot (Sherwood), The Natural Food Company (City Centre), Dash Vegan, the Health Food Store (Mapperley) and others may also offer a similar service.

For updates see our Food Hub page or the Facebook post
