The Spitalfields City Farm
is holding its annual horticultural show and green fair this Sunday the 14th of September.
This is a great kid's day out. There's all sort for them to do from milking a dairy goat to walking the donkeys. But it's not all child's play - this is also a green living festival. There will be loads of organic food produce, arts and crafts, fairtrade goods, alternative therapies, information on recycling, composting and growing your own food, biodiversity and sustainability workshops as well as information on climate change, emissions reduction, energy conservation and renewable energy for greener homes.
Other highlights include flower arranging (it's right near the Columbia Road Flower Market after all), urban garden tours, a cycling arena, guided tours of the farm and musicians filling the air with their melodious tunes.
For those a fan of the TV series It's Not Easy Being Green, presenter James Strawbridge, will be there as one of the judges selecting the winner of the Champion's Cup.
Gates open at 12pm and close 5pm. Admission is free. This community festival is held at Allen Gardens and Spitalfields City Farm, Buxton Street, E1.
