Let’s Feast for Resurgence Slow Sunday

Organise a seasonal organic feast with friends and neighbours.

Taking inspiration from John Moat’s wonderful article Salamongundi (Issue 251) on the annual community feast in the small village of Welcombe, North Devon, we invite you to honour the idea of feasting for the next Resurgence Slow Sunday.

Think of friends whose company you enjoy, think of neighbours you’ve been meaning to invite round, but haven’t, think of family that you feel you should see more often, but don’t have the time.

The emphasis for this feast is on simple, healthy, organic food that is also tasty, delicious and above all, inexpensive. You don’t have to spend hours slaving over a hot stove because each guest brings along a delectable dish of their own. So, whether you are a small group of friends or, as with the Salamongundi feast in Welcome, a whole village, you can come together for an afternoon of communal conviviality.

Simply delicious

If you're stuck for recipe ideas, you can take a look at some of the articles in the Resurgence archive. Here's a selection we think you might enjoy...

All the food is simple, seasonal, affordable and, above all, delicious.

Eat Locally, Think Globally

Resurgence Slow Sunday is where people in their own communities perform small acts of defiance for environmentalism. For this reason we are suggesting that all food for this feast should be local and organic. Please take a look at the information on The Soil Association website to find out more about why organic is so important.
