Transition West Kilbride | Sunday 23rd October 2011
West Kilbride Community Centre
Loads of local producers with delicious foods and goods to try, demonstrations, samples, recipes, kids activities, traditional apple pressing, face painting, apple printing to create a giant community apple print with the girls from the Printmakers' Boutique, a raffle and much more.
"In its first year, the food festival is shaping up to be a fantastic day out for all ages in the family.
Organisers say 'come along, there's lots to see, taste and do.'
Local food producers will be giving tasters, recipes and selling produce. People can have a go at traditional apple pressing or try making your own apple witch! Check out the apple printing stall and make your mark on the giant West Kilbride apple print image aided by the girls from The Printmakers' Boutique. There will be a prize raffle, face painting and lots more, say the Transition team.
TWK is part of the growing, global Transition Network which was set up by local residents to look at ways we can adapt to rising energy costs and climate change.
Funded by the Climate Challenge Fund, they work with the local community through various programmes including; growing your own groceries, composting and wormery workshops, home energy checks, community food gardens and unbiased renewables advice.
