‘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.
The Green Festival continues to break all records in terms of visitors & stalls.
This will be the 28th Nottingham Green Festival and with your support it will be even bigger & better in 2020.
You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.

Climate change: HEADING FOR EXTINCTION – and what to do about it! (+ #FoodByVeggies!)
With all the terrifying reports of the devastation caused by extreme weather events from Australia to the Amazon, it can seem like this is beyond our control. Billions of animals lost, millions of hectares of land destroyed – it all seems so overwhelming. BUT, there are things we can do to prevent this all getting worse.
This talk is to let you know why the climate and ecological crisis have come to pass and what we can do to prevent this catastrophe from continuing. Extinction Rebellion’s ethos is non-violent mass civil disobedience to force governments to ACT NOW on the growing climate and ecological emergency.
Veggies is volunteer-led, a community-based, social enterprise, promoting vegan catering and supporting campaigns for humans, other animals and the environment since 1984.
We continue to cater and campaign for a huge range of groups on many diverse issues, thanks to the support of many people who come with us to events or who help behind the scenes at our Nottingham base.
If you would like to help Veggies, feel free to come to our meeting, or see our Events Diary.
(If other events are running at Sumac we may find space elsewhere).
