Veganic Harvest Festival Competition

We would love to taste your pies, see your pictures and hear your stories.

Have you been foraging, farming or gardening or have you been more creative baking pies and making things from nature’s bounty of corn, willow, bark, sticks or leaves?

All the fun you have been having in the outdoors could win you a prize!

We have books to give away: Garden of Vegan by Cleve West, The Vegan Cook and Gardener by Piers Warren and Growing Green by Jenny Hall and Iain Tolhurst.

To enter the competition all you have to do is send your pictures and stories to:  events@veganorganic.net

Competition open until 1st November – winners to be announced live on VGQT on November 4th.

The panel:

Cherry Chung Basket Maker:

Will be sharing ideas on what you can make and showing off some of the things that she has created from her harvest of willow and bark.

“From the start I was hooked by the direct nature of working some sticks with only my hands into an object which could be functional and aesthetic. There is a human instinct to make thing from raw materials.”
