People engaged at Foodival stall in Tooting

Our 2021 Tooting Foodival was again a great success, with Volker and team serving locally grown street-cooked food throughout the day to a constant stream of visitors.

The sustainable theme was more congruent than ever with many relevant stalls selling handmade local produce, a variety of workshops and attractions utilising a larger road space, the music drawing people in, well integrated with interesting speakers on climate topics. The sustainable fashion restyling and catwalk were great new additions.

Thanks as ever to Naseem at Mushkil Aasaan, Brian at BJ Hardware and the residents of Hereward Rd for the use of their spaces and especially to all the volunteers who came to help set up, take down, decorate, serve and recycle.

Could Foodival #14 have been the best yet? Quite possibly! 

Here’s a short video to give you a taste of the day!

Climate Chaos … & Local Food

So yesterday’s IPCC’s latest report says human activity is changing the climate in unprecedented and sometimes irreversible ways. . The Guardian gives its verdict on the climate crimes of humanity as “guilty as hell”. The report itself is likely to be conservative, having been signed up to by all the world’s governments based on ...
