Bristol harbour is to be the host site for Europe’s biggest organic event on the 12th & 13th September, and is forecast to attract 20,000 visitors.
The mission of this, the ninth Organic Food Festival, is to educate people on how to grow and cook food in a sustainable way.
We are told there will be 250 organic exhibitors and, naturally, there will be a bevvy of celeb chefs in attendance.
In addition to food and drink there will also be organic fashion, organic textiles, home design and help with organic gardening best practice.
Sarah Weiner, who is the festival manager, said: “The Organic Food Festival gives thousands of people the chance to meet the pioneers paving the way to a secure food system – one that is dependent on the sun rather than dwindling reserves of petroleum.
Monty Don, who is the new president of the Soil Association said: “Delicious food that nurtures our countryside and our future seems like a good idea to me, and this year’s Organic Food Festival will be a wonderful celebration of all that is great about British food – health, taste and the best possible care of our environment.”
