5½ weeks & Counting

Foodival always seems to come round quicker than you think.  Yes it's a mere 5½ weeks until south London's premier sustainable food festival kicks off over the weekend of 12th/13th September!  Local growing, cooking and of course eating are at the heart of Foodival and this year is no exception.  But as usual we need lots of lovely home grown vegetables and fruit to make the festival happen at all which begs the question ...
Above are some of 2014's vintage snapped at the BATCA Fun Day.  I really love these photos.  People are often really proud of what they have grown at home or in an allotment and just seem to want to share the joy with others!  We are always very grateful for any food donated.  

Could you be immortalised in September's Foodival hall of fame? This year we are going to celebrate the ordinary, weird shaped, supermarket rejectable vegetables in our Ugly Veg Competition.  Do you have a scary looking contender lurking in your window box?  How Ugly Can You Go?
Send us some photos of any aspiring contenders and we'll feature them on this blog!  There will be prizes for the most extraordinary entries!
