As part of the Museum’s Cardiff Veg City pledge, festival visitors can experience veg cooking demos, eat locally grown veg and see the spectacular National Vegetable Society – Welsh Branch Show.

Over the next year the Museum will be supporting local veg producers through the monthly Riverside Farmers Markets and promoting veg through feasting events and Food Festival.

The Museum is also committed to working with partners such as Innovative Trust, Cardiff Met and First Campus to develop a garden for growing on site and deliver hands on family workshops to learn about growing, harvesting & cooking healthy food using produce from the gardens.
