On Feast Days, look out for the Green Stalls @ Family Hub near the Leisure Centre. You can spot them because they have green canopies!
Since April the stalls have been hosting groups that promote ways to live sustainably (which is the real reason they are known as green stalls!). Feast are subsidising the stalls as a community initiative and a dedicated group of volunteers are supporting their development.
Plastic Free West Norwood have become regulars – so you can pop by and get advice about how to reduce single use plastics in your life. In May, Groundwork London came to raise awareness about food waste. They invited Feast goers to try their food waste quiz…which was surprisingly tough (Well, did you know ½ a banana skin can generate enough electricity to charge your phone!?!!).
Norwood Planning Assembly have also been along to canvas local opinion about their Green Vision for the area. This is an exciting project to develop a greener West Norwood…the more of us that get behind this the better! And June Feast, we welcomed Lambeth Community Solar who are launching a community power initiates at Elm Green and Norwood schools. They were explaining their work and inviting investors – shares will be launched in September.
We’ve got lots of other fantastic organisations booked in. They are keen to share ways of living more sustainably. So remember to look out for those green topped stalls when you are next at Feast!
