Bridgwater’s Eco Festival ‘SEED THE DAY’ Set for September 11

Bridgwater Town Council and Vegan Fairs will once again host the popular event ‘SEED THE DAY’ on Saturday 11 th September in Bridgwater High Street, Town Hall and Engine Room. Stalls will be open from 10am until 4pm and will encompass a range of vegan food, products, talks and activities along with charity and community-based stalls with a focus on the environment. Councillor Kathy Pearce, Climate Emergency Portfolio Holder on Bridgwater Town Council says “The recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Meteorological Office predictions of rising sea levels locally, set out why we must take account of impact on our environment through the choices we make. Therefore, this event is part of Bridgwater Town Council’s Climate Emergency Strategy to promote amazing alternative produce and products which literally do not cost the earth and have some fun at the same time. We invite everyone to come along to enjoy the range of produce on offer, maybe try something new and find out how we can all make a difference.”

Besides a whole host of stalls in the Town Hall and along the High Street, the Engine Room will also be hosting a number of activities, including the popular Repair Café, a Seed and Plant Swap stall, talks on how to Garden for Wildlife and Grow Perennial Vegetables and an uplifting film called Motherload about the bicycle empowers a young mother in a gas-powered, digital and divided world.
