On Saturday Sept 16th 2017 Transition Town Tooting are hosting our tenth annual Tooting Foodival. This is a day festival of local low food-mile growing and donating veg and fruit, cooking and community feasting - plus a wide range of fun complementary activities This is a fun and successful event and we're a friendly group who need some assistance setting up on the day between 8:00 am and 12:00 midday on Sept 16th. On the morning of Saturday Sept 16th we need volunteers to work alongside our own team to help set up the event's activities, including: > Setting up gazebos and shelters > Laying out stages and materials for varied stalls and stands > Setting out tables and chairs > Putting up signage, bunting and decorations > And more tasks that will develop in the morning - all to do with physical setting up You don't need to be a body builder - many hands will make light work. A freshly-cooked lunch will be provided to all volunteers and you are welcome to enjoy the rest of the day with us. The Foodival is in a community hall and also in the adjacent street, outside, and runs from 11:00 to 5:00 right in the middle of Tooting. (As you may have read, Tooting is now recognised as one of the ten coolest places on the planet...! See

Volunteering impact


The annual Foodival reaches out to all the diverse cultures in the whole Tooting community to celebrate local vegetable and produce growing and donations, cooking and coming together to have a shared feast led by local chefs! Alongside the main events there's be creative workshops, storytelling, gardening sessions, music, spoken word - and just chatting and enjoying the day. We are volunteers ourselves, and we are also beneficiaries! We enjoy making new friends and working alongside others who want to contribute energy and ideas. Community feedback is always good, and we also make new relationships to improve and develop our own sustainability projects during the rest of the year.
