Rob Hopkins at Mirch Masala

Rob Hopkins, the creator of the Transition Town concept, made a flying visit for a late afternoon snackette at Mirch Masala last night, the table cunningly adjacent to our Foodival poster, before being ferried to the Brixton Pound launch in Lucy's van!

Also, a whole hour was devoted to Transition Towns and the B£ on LBC yesterday courtesy of Jeni Barnett who thinks Rob is a visionary hero! She's right of course.

Now what shall we call the Tooting currency when it arrives and who shall we put on it? Just thumbing the Venerable Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People for a decent mugshot of Tōta, the c.6th century Anglo-saxon, and his people the Tōtinges, from whom the name Tooting apparently descends. dt

The Food Walk starts at 12 noon at Al Mirage, 215 Upper Tooting Rd arriving at Fircroft School for a Food Fete from 2pm. For more details go to the Foodival page
