Keynsham Eco Festival, hosted by Keynsham and Saltford Churches Together, returns to showcase positive and practical responses to the ongoing climate, food, and energy crisis.
This week-long series of inspiring events, workshops, talks and discussions aims to raise awareness, offer practical help and explore ways we can collectively address community and global environmental challenges.
The main event, taking place on Saturday 15 October, will feature an eco market in Market Walk and The Great Keynsham Eco Bake Off, judged by Giuseppe Dell’Anno (winner of The Great British Bake Off 2021).
Workshops throughout the week include More Taste Less Waste with local nutritionist Trisha Lahner; Eat the Rainbow with nutrition and lifestyle coach Jasmine Stevens Wong; Growing Food in Small Spaces with Trevor James and Chris Lawrence; Foraging for Beginners with local producer Heavenly Hedgerows; and Active Hope with activist Vicki Youdan.
There will also be a repair cafe, special church services, and an exhibition by Two Rivers School. Finally, you can attend an evening panel discussion and Q&A.
Most of the events are completely free to attend, though some of them require a ticket to be booked in advance. The full programme is below and on Facebook, and you can secure your tickets online at Eventbrite.
All Eco Festival workshops and activities which are free to attend have been funded by the Keynsham Local Cultural Programme and by Keynsham Town Council.
