There will be pedal generators for kids of all ages, a life size “corporate monopoly” game, and activities from local groups including Berkshire Greenpeace, Reading Friends of the Earth, Transition Town Reading, Reading Food Growing Network and more. All groups will have stalls displaying what they do and giving you the chance to find out more and sign up to get involved.

Workshops will be running throughout the day including Love Food Hat Waste, weaving with recycled materials (Crafted Waste) and discussions about local issues.

Tasty vegan food will be served in St Laurence’s along with short films such as “Where’s Reading Heading” and “Local Food Roots”
