Ilford 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 dotted 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 🙂
The commonwealth gardeners will be creating a fruit tree map to make it easier next year to harvest all the fruit and stop any going to waste. Shilpa Patel
