Earth First Summer Gathering 2022

The Earth First Summer Gathering is back!

Five days of skill-sharing for grassroots ecological direct action – make links, share ideas, and get involved in the struggles against open cast coal, fracking, new roads, HS2, climate criminals and more.

The Earth First! Summer Gathering is the place where people involved in radical ecological direct action – or those who want to be involved – get together for five days of time and space to talk, walk, share skills, learn, play, rant, find out what’s going on, find out what’s next, live outside, strategise, hang out, incite, laugh and conspire.

The workshops, networking and planning of actions at this low impact eco-living camp is organised non-hierarchically. It’s run without leaders by everyone who comes along, so come prepared to chip in!

The Gathering may have parallel workshops coordinated as an embedded UK Animal Rights Gathering.

Veggies Food is HereVeggies will coordinate a diy cafe space, tuck shop, vegan cake baking workshops, with main catering coordinated by Eat First!. To help Contact Veggies.

Vegan Organic Fest 2022

The  Vegan Organic Fest 2022 is back!

The on site cafe will be serving meals with veganic veg from local grower Rich Hardy. There will be homemade cakes and raw delights.

Activities will include:

Yoga, tai chi, gong baths, foraging, silent disco, fire, talks and discussion, live music, veganic food, arts and crafts, circus skills, trampolining, sauna and swimming pool.

The Vegan Organic Fest will be at Chyan Cultural Centre; an eleven acre site deep in the Cornish countryside with a capacity of about 200 people, camping facilities, on site hostel and nearby alternative accommodation.

Chyan is an off grid veganic apple farm with its own supply of spring water. The venue hosts many events and is a wonderful place for returning to nature, some of the land is wild, some is nature reserve and there is plenty of flat meadow for camping.  Chyan has a 200-seater geodesic dome theatre, two large modern barns for classes plus several marquees. The centre has its own wind turbine, which provides electricity for the whole site and its the hot showers. The swimming pool and sauna are all fed by natural spring water.  We are blessed to be able to hold the festival in such a beautiful, peaceful and positive space. https://chyan.org/.

Report from Vegan Organic Fest 2021

The event is from midday on Thursday 18th August- Monday 22nd August with activities happening from Friday-Sunday.

Join them for a riot in the court,seeking justice for nature , a breathtaking, joyful, and heartbreaking show.Earthalujah!

Tickets are on a sliding scale – pay what you can afford

The Earth Riot Tour is like a cloudburst of melody and rhythm mixed with open conversation about the uprising of our physical world. At a turning point in our lives, as shock extinction accelerates, how do we live and how do we love?

After performances across the country, the exuberant troupe will reach COP26 International Conference for Climate Change with two shows in Glasgow. Whether COP26 will be so pleased to see them remains to be seen!

Sunday 11th 2003 : Reverend Billy’s Sunday Service

From Veggies Archive

The possibly insane but indisputably sublime Reverend Billy brought his war on consumerism from New York city to Nottingham. Mixing art with activism, and activism with entertainment the Reverend performed one of his comic ‘services’ at Broadway, appropriately enough, since the building was originally a chapel.

During the service, Reverend Billy conferred ‘sainthood’ in the Church of No Shopping on Veggies’ Co-operative members Pat & Ronny.

Green Gathering POSTPONED to 2022

POSTPONED

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.

Earth First Summer Resistance

No  Earth First Summer Gathering this year – instead  Earth First is calling for a Summer Dispersal of Decentralised Days of Resistance.

Concerns around the spread of the virus mean we feel it’s safest not to organise a mass gathering this year but the need to actively resist capitalism and ecological destruction has never been greater.

Covid 19, climate change, racial inequality, poverty: These are all symptoms of a broken system that sees the earth’s resources as infinite, purely for human use and abuse, without a thought for the consequences, and which prioritises profit above all else and oppresses and divides people along racial, gender, class and other lines to maintain its power.

Love Your Planet; Strike For It!

Nottingham YouthStrike4Climate will be taking to the streets of Nottingham to demand an end to the climate crisis under the title “Love Your Planet; Strike For It!”.
 
Your political and practical support is crucial for having a powerful demonstration on the day. You are invited  to join us on our action. See the link to our Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/524281981526196/.
 
In addition, we still need to organise some of the details for the day and so we are having an open planning meeting which all groups and individuals are welcome to attend.
The meeting is this Saturday 25th January at 3pm in the Vat and Fiddle, NG2 1NB and it would be great to see as many people there as possible. Link to the Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/843502749409534/.

Join us as we take part in this nationally co-ordinated call to action and take to the streets of Nottingham to demand a solution to the climate crisis! Show the world what you love about our shared environment and be a part of the fightback for its defence.

This is our world and we will fight those who are destroying it!
