St Fagans National Museum of History will come alive with food, drink and live music as the museum celebrates the 10th instalment of their annual food festival. As part of the museum’s Veg Cities Cardiff pledge, festival visitors can experience veg cooking demos, eat locally grown veg and see the spectacular National Vegetable Society - Welsh Branch Show.
Over the next year the museum will be supporting local veg producers through the monthly Riverside Farmers Markets and promoting veg through feasting events and Food Festival.
The museum is also committed to working with partners such as Innovative Trust, Cardiff Met and First Campus to develop a garden for growing on site and deliver hands on family workshops to learn about growing, harvesting and cooking healthy food using produce from the gardens.
Pearl Costello, Cardiff Sustainable Food City Co-ordinator for Food Cardiff said:
“We are delighted to be working with St Fagans National Museum of History. The museum plays such an important role in showcasing the heritage of food and farming in Wales and celebrating our modern food culture. The 10th St Fagans Food Festival is a fantastic opportunity to bring our local veg to the forefront.”
Entry to St Fagans Food Festival is free and runs on the 7th and 8th September. Find more information here or contact email@example.com.
Sustain are encouraging more areas to launch Veg Cities campaigns and get local businesses and organisations making veg pledges. Veg Cities is currently the feature campaign of Sustainable Food Cities and is run in partnership with Peas Please.
