Eat the Landscape

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust (YWT) is hoping to get their hands on our glut (see below)....

YWT has been invited to co-host an evening entitled “Eat the Landscape” at the York Festival of Food and Drink, an event which takes place in September each year, providing a 10 day city-wide event to promote local and regional food and drink and generating up to 150,000 visitors over the 10days.

When – Saturday September 18th 5-9pm

Where - the Fountain Café on Parliament St. This will be a drop in event with Yorkshire food on offer and Yorkshire Real Ales (plus wine, soft drinks etc.) from the Beer Tent which together with the Fountain Café and Grazing Café forms one large licensed area at night.

YWT are planning to host 5 stalls each one showcasing different aspects of the Trust’s work and how this impacts on the food we eat. They need to be stands that tell stories and show diversity in food.

The stalls are:
  • Bee-keeping
  • Peatlands and grazing
  • Stewardship
  • Eating local
  • Membership
The local food stall will include information on the benefits of eating locally including a display about our vegetable garden in Hull and hopefully some produce. YWT are hoping local allotment owners will bring us some of their glut to give away in return for donations to the Trust. Glut can be dropped off between 4.30 and 7.30 on the night to Parliament Sq
