Nottingham Green Festival 2021

Subject to covid-19 status

‘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 36 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.

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.
