Launch of Tooting Harvest Foodival 2009!


Transition Town Tooting are busy organising this year’s Harvest Foodival taking place on Sunday 27th of September and are looking for all growers great and small to join in.
The event is a celebration of all things green and growing in the town and restaurants down the high street from Tooting Bec to Broadway stations will be cooking up locally grown fruit and veg on the day so locals can sample the true tastes of Tooting! Along with the cooking will also be a number of walks to venues near the high street where food is already being grown above and around shops with talks on urban growing and the possibilities for broadening Tooting’s food production.
At the end of the day there’ll be a fantastic finale event including a growers competition with a category for “Fruit or Veg that Most Resembles a Celebrity” – truly a must win event! So we’re encouraging everyone to get growing and be a part of what looks set to be an amazing day that celebrates Tooting’s rich food culture with more than a sprinkling of fun!
For more details on how to be part of the event or to be emailed updates on what’s happening when and where, please contact Giles Read at giles@cen.org.uk or on 0773 892 8215.

Transition Town Meet-up

TT Tooting members were involved in a successful 21st Century Network Transition Towns meet-up at EnlightenNext in Islington on Wednesday (13th May). Lucy was speaking along with TT Brixton's Duncan Law and TT Forest Row's Mike Grenville while David was facilitating. Loads of good ideas appeared in the breakout discussions and I personally was particularly taken with the idea of giving my garden shed a green roof - something like this one perhaps. This group has someone with a good camera taking pics at every event that provide a good record. I think TTT could endeavour to do the same? Any Tooting Annie Liebowitzs or David Baileys out there?
