Transition West Gateshead is an optimistic and practical response to climate change and shrinking supplies of fuel. People get together to come up with ideas and projects to make their area more aware and resilient. TWiG is presenting their annual local food festival where they promote and showcase the local food produce of the area and discuss how we can make our community for environmentally friendly.
There will be a great selection of local food available to buy on the day including fresh veg from Gibside Community Farm, free range eggs from Self Sufficient in Suburbia, Sunniside, fresh bread from Wildfire Bakery, Ryton, a hog roast and BBQ from High Strothers Farm, High Spen, woodfired pizza and garlic Bread from Earth and Fire, Gibside, herb teas and tombola, plants from Tom and Joe’s, Wylam and more to be announced! Lots of children’s activities including upcycling and face painting and demonstrations centred around living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. A history walk and foraging experience through the woods. There will be vegan, veggie and gluten free curries from The Paddock and The Pickle Palace made using organic, surplus veggies, gluten free sweet treats from Liz’s Supperclub, High Spen, and The Pickle Palace will have a selection of jams, chutneys, pickles and preserves, the perfect accompaniment to the cheese from The Northumberland Cheese Company on behalf of The Paddock.
Gateshead Green Party will have a stall over at the TWiG Local Food Festival, and will be talking about how we can all help take care of our environment.
Come on down and have a great day for the whole family!
