Who else will you meet at Foodival?





Foodival this year brings you fabulous food from locally grown food cooked up by local restaurants. While you eat, you'll be entertained by a wonderful range of entertainers.  But that's not all!

Venture around the whole venue and you'll meet people from local business and community groups; you'll discover places to play games, do art and crafts and we hope you'll meet some great new friends from your neightbourhood.

So here's our little nod to the great range of stalls lined up already for the Foodival this year.
  • If all the lovely food at the Foodival is whetting your appetite for getting outside and growing your own, we have Transition Town Tooting and Transition Town Wandsworth talking about their community gardens.  
  • The Friends of Streatham Cemetery will have representatives of their community beekeeping project (there might even be some local honey to try).  
  • Meanwhile Niamh’s Nutrition stall can tell you all you need to know about eating healthily.
  • We’ve got some great local energy projects with the Furzedown Low Carbon Zone, and Community Renewable Energy Wandsworth both working to set up renewable energy generation projects in the area.
  • For the creative amongst you, the Sustainable Makers and Artists of Tooting (SMART) will have a stall with some hands on making activities... and if games are your thing you can have a go at giant low-carbon Jenga with Carbon Collaborations.
  • Some lovely local makers will be there – locally made chutneys from Hilary’s Preserves, home made cakes from China Jordan and vegetable ivory jewellery from Tahgwa.
  • You can find out more from our friends at fantastic local charity, Klevis Kola who support refugee and asylum-seeking families and helps them to play their full part in the community.  And the amazing Foodcycle Wandsworth will be around, so if you fancy cooking up a feast, find out how you can join in with them every weekend in Tooting on a Friday or Saturday.
We're still in need of a few volunteers to help on the day, so if you have an hour to spare, get in touch. And we can't wait to see all at Samaj Hall on Sunday 14 September from midday.
