Foodival is Transition Town Tooting's annual food festival, celebrating everything that's good about locally grown food. Foodival aims to show how it's possible to grow local, eat local, be sustainable and have fun while doing it!

ll not that I can believe it but it's less than 2 months till this year's Harvest Foodival. I've been busy fighting against the torrent of heat to keep my chives and tomatoes alive which has been a battle but they're fine -phew! On the upside, the heat has given me a bumper crop of grapes to bring to the foodival so maybe it'll be a donation more of fruit than veg from me this year but hey ho, it all tastes the better from having come from Tooting :)
I thought it was time to start blogging again for the event and get people excited and to let everyone know what's going on.
So far, we already have a cycle powered smoothie machmine and two allotments - one at Springfield and one at St George's Hospitals signed up (see pic from St G's below!) so it already looks like a stonker of a festival is at hand.
Just to remind those that don't know the dates and details for the event(why you wouldn't have these etched on to your arm is beyond me ;) Saturday the 18th of September is collection day for all donations of fruit big and small and Sunday the 19th of September from midday is the start of the festival foodie fun! Collection will be held at Mushkil Aasaan at 222 Upper Tooting Rd on the 18th so please donate anything you've got spare!
Also, I want to keep a pic record of how everyone is doing growing in this summer's searing heat -please email all pics and comments to
All the Best and more details to follow!
