A COMMUNITY festival is set to return for its fifth year.

The GreenDreams Community Food and Greenspaces Festival is due to take place at Field Place Manor House and Barns in Worthing on Sunday, September 19.

Following a Covid-enforced cancellation of last year’s event, the festival is set to return for its fifth year.

The event is designed and led by community-based groups and organisations, aiming to bring together a variety of community and social enterprise groups involved in food projects, small-scale local food production and greenspace initiatives from Worthing and Adur.

For the first time, the festival will be fully outside (weather permitting). A final decision will be made on September 17.

Stalls will be offering a range of locally grown food and produce, while a number of workshops and activities for all the family will be on offer.

Sessions will include ukulele workshops, slime making, foraging, honey spinning, environmental awareness activities, food workshops and more.

Festival organisers said their aim is to promote and celebrate food and green spaces as central to wellbeing and quality of life, as well as a tool for building community resilience.

“These groups are involved in creating skills and employment in a socially inclusive way, crafting great products, spaces and activities for people to use and enjoy and by putting into daily practice the ‘reduce, re-use and re-cycle’ approach as endorsed by local and central government, health bodies and environment agencies the world over,” a GreenDreams organiser said.

There will also be local beers available on the day.

Entry to the festival is free.

Gates are open for visitors between 10:30am and 4pm.
