2020 has been the year of no events! But plenty of time for reflecting, visioning and a new direction…. collaborating, communicating and honouring our values.
The past few years we have been working with the same festivals, creating relationships with the tribes and land across the UK, building community bonds with a weekly food surplus kitchen, nourishing intimate retreats, tailoring wedding celebrations with couples in an off-grid setting.
Being mostly off-grid, we’ve not been able to update so much online, but we’ll share more current photos and update with projects in time…. For now, take a look at some of our more bustling festival seasons below for a flavour of what we’ve been up to in the past… and remember… everything must change!
We’ll be cooking and collaborating with The Delightful Express in Forest Row, Sussex, soon!

SPRING & SUMMER EVENTS 2018 – Opportunities to Volunteer
INTO THE WILD BELTANE FIRE FESTIVAL, Cowden, Sussex
4th-6th May, Bank Holiday Monday
This photo was taken last year as we strolled through the woods – what an array of bluebells! We will be running as Into The Wild Cafe, a busy kitchen providing wholesome fresh meals, snacks and drinks, plus a small stage with acoustic performances, talks and films in the evenings.
INTO THE WILD DZOGCHEN RETREAT, Emerson College, Forest Row, Sussex
Thursday 14th-17th Sunday June
‘Love and Compassion are the sweet breath of non-duality’….We’re back at Emerson College with Into the Wild, for a more meditative experience and enquiry of the mind – with James Low. Help us cook and serve food from Thursday dinner to Sunday lunch and camp amongst the herbs and flowers of Emerson. Enjoy talks and meditations with James in a restful atmosphere, and be nourished by us with love.
UNEARTHED FESTIVAL, Pembrokeshire, Wales
This tribal gathering in a beautiful part of the country provides BASS THERAPY! We’ll be dancing to beats and serving up food til the early hours of the morn in the wild Welsh nature. We’ll be the main cafe, serving up crew food too – so we’re putting together a dedicated team that can get stuck in. We’re looking forward to Macka B’s CUCUMBA!
LONDON RADICAL HERBALISM GATHERING, North London
Saturday 21st July
We are very excited to be part of this day event, feeding lunch to herbalists and London community herbal projects and networks, Herbalists Without Borders and migrant solidarity, cultural appropriation and decolonisation in herbalism and healthcare, sharing of global healing practices and more! The power of nature and togetherness…
SPIRIT FEST, Bedfordshire
This year the tribe are moving from the Forest of Dean to Bedfordshire with a whole host of quality musicians, piercing the veil and touching the soul… Many workshops and opportunities to connect with people.
OFF GRID FESTIVAL, Tapeley Park, North Devon
COMMUNICATION IN PROCESS! We’ve just received an exciting email to join this festival, if we can manage it before the big Into the Wild later in the month – if we go really small, simple and humble to this gathering, back to our roots of food waste, creating more of an experience cooking a surplus pot of yummyness together, we could do it….and learn and enjoy a festival powered by wind and sun….we’re in communication to see how this can be possible….
INTO THE WILD SUMMER GATHERING, Edenbridge, Kent/Sussex border
August 24-27th Bank Holiday Monday
Look at that queue! This is our busiest festival ever! The amount of quality food we provide as the main cafe is quite astounding. We bring many volunteers to the fields, this is a high energy, high demand, high reward experience – it all happens in the kitchen! The core crew are working hard together to make it as streamlined and full of love as possible….come and be part of it!
Phew, what a whopping season its going to be!
We also have our FOOD WASTE KITCHEN, Manor House, London until mid-May if you want to come and get a flavour of us, Fridays we will be cooking at Redmond Community Centre 4-7pm. Check out the details on this page – https://redmoonroots.com/projects/
Whether at community centres, events, workshops, retreats, or festivals, we share what we learn and keep adapting to suit people’s needs with a full range of flavour and colour.
