RUMBA DE LONDRES will perform popular Congolese Soukous dance rhythms and songs in Lingala and French (1-3pm) and at 3.30pm ORGANIC, a local band who started life in the Funky Monkey, Camberwell, will showcase their talents.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Everyone will be invited to sit down to a free vegetarian feast from 1pm which will include food grown by volunteers on local estates and in our greenhouse. The feast will be prepared by local cooks.
London Orchard Project will bring a large juicer and people will be able to take away (or drink) fresh juice made from locally-foraged fruit.
We’ll also have a jam making session - bBring along some fruit and a jar and take home jam at the end of the day. Children will be able to design a label for your jar.
Invisible Food will join us after a morning forage for wild food and will make elderberry chutney during the afternoon. Their walk starts at the Loughborough Centre, SW9 7PD at 10.30am.
We will have a bee keeping demonstration with honey from Myatt’s hives.
The music for the day has been funded by the National Lottery’s Awards for All programme, and the cooking activities are funded by the Big Lottery Fund’s Local Food fund. The day is organised by Myatt’s Fields Park Project in partnership with London Borough of Lambeth.
