The Tottenham flower and Produce Show has been an eagerly anticipated event in the local calendar for over 10 years. We run workshops in schools, older peoples centres and in the Park on healthy eating and cooking, gardening and crafts in the build up to the show to inspire people to enter. Our aim is to encourage self sufficiency , steering people away from buying things in shops that may not be as healthy or ethically produced. We want to introduce local people to the joys of growing your own and cooking with your own fresh produce. Some people will not have gardens or large incomes but we will show how people can produce quite a lot in containers and can recycle and upcycle existing clothing and objects. We want to be part of the movement against obesity and to encourage healthy exercise that can be gained out in the garden or on an allottment. Ultimately we want to organise a fun and sociable event that will bring people together in a positive way and enhance health and well-being.

What we'll deliver:

  • encourage home growing
  • encourage home cooking with home grown produce
  • engage all ages in growing, cooking and handicrafts
  • Bring the community together in a fun and positive activity

Why it's a great idea:

Tottenham is a very mixed and diverse area of London. It has had its share of social problems and continues to do so, but it also is an area full of people with a will to get together and unite around a common purpose. Events like ours are free for all ages to enjoy. It combines education and skill sharing with the fun and the thrill of healthy competition. It is run like a village event, slightly ramshackle, but organised by a group of energetic local people with an interest in green issues. Tottenham is facing an uncertain future with large regeneration and development plans. Now more than ever the people of Tottenham need places and events where they can feel together and experience the strength of their community. With statistics for obesity and diabetes being high in Tottenham, it is important to run community events that encourage healthy eating and share with people how they can make small lifestyle changes that can make a huge impact on their health and wellbeing.

Steps to get it done:

  • We will run workshops in schools in Late June/early July
  • We will book experts to run workshops on the day Late June/early July
  • We will book pony rides June
  • We will confirm booking of marquees, stalls etc August
  • We will arrange stewarding and volunteers for the day August
