The Green Gathering 2020

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.

Glastonbury Festival Green Futures 2020

Veggies Glastonbury Panorama

With the cancellation of Glastonbury we have lost a major source of campaign outreach and funding .

You’ll see from facebook that we’re busy (as at 20 March) with opening up our food stores for those isolated at home or those that wish to distance themselves from the madness of Tesco & Asda. Read more here.

Our core costs – rent, insurances, vehicle costs, minimum wages etc come to £2000 per month, £450 per week.

If you can help with any of this donations are welcome!

Archived til next year:

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

Veggies / Sumac Community Food Hub

Every day (EXCEPT Mondays and Saturdays)

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. Cleaning materials & liquid foods may be dispensed in jars & bottles. Empty bottles are welcome to maintain our supply.

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, fairtrade & organic products which, due to the broken food system, may be more expensive than cheap supermarket foods. However we can match supermarket prices and will look at defered 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
