A great Tenth Tooting Foodival!
Well that was fun!
What a great event the 10th Foodival proved to be. Using Hereward Road beside Mushkil Aasaan gave the event a really good flow. Outside, Volker manfully orchestrated the Big Feast, feeding the masses with sustainable locally grown fruit and vegetables, serenaded by the different artists on the Sound Lounge stage. Bees drew the crowds to Richard’s camper van, while local resident Corinne painted faces, punters supped Kombucha from Thirsty House, sampled Debbie’s jams or discovered Wandsworth Oasis, Sutton Community Farm & Wandsworth Food Partnership.
The Soap Box was a popular new addtion, providing an instant stage for environmental thinking while inside on the Green Stage we heard about propagating, insects and compost! Jeni’s Crafts and the YUM-JAM kept kids young and old busy in the Mushkil Aasaan hall and in Hereward Rd.
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to making this a great event, especially our fabulous growers without whom there would be no Big Feast or Top Tooting Cook Competition. More thank yous, reports and pictures to follow, but first I need a lie down!
