Ilford pilot of a community food fest in Urban Food fortnight -17th September 2016

urban-food-fortnight-logoIlford Transition Town is excited to be working with residents on the Commonwealth Estate in Ilford to run an urban community Food Fest. This is thought to be the first one of its kind in Redbridge and its all about bringing in the harvest as there are fruit trees on the estate and plenty of herbs and veggie patches love-food-hate-waste-logodotted around.  It’s also about stopping food waste.

  • Saturday 17th September 12-3
  • Fold cafe, Cranbrook Baptist Church, Wellesley Road, Ilford, IG1 4JT

This is a good excuse to have a community get together, celebrate the harvest, especially what’s grown here, and to share recipes and food preserving tips. Corine, Habiba, Hayley, Jon, Olcay, Ros, Ruth, Shilpa, Suhas  (organising committee)

Please pass on the word. It’s bring and share: your fresh herbs, your harvest, surplus veg, food tasters, recipes, conversation  🙂
