Food and Drink
Most importantly, the Riba Rocks festival is completely ‘plastic free’. There are no disposable plastic cups. Instead special Riba Rocks printed reusable cups are available to purchase at the Riba Rocks bar which you use all weekend and take home with you. You will also have your tea or coffee in served in compostable cups from Enviropack and all your food is served on compostable plates or napkins. Even the forks are compostable, made from starch.
There is a paid bar at the Riba Rocks festival which is integral to the financial sustainability of the event. Drinks are priced very reasonably in line with the local bars and restaurants.
We know how important food is! Our Riba Rocks festival kitchen serves homemade, vegetarian and vegan food with gluten free options too including veggie burgers, falafel, cookies, pizzas, salads, fruits and much much more.
We have just started a Riba Rocks fruit tree and vegetable plot with cherries, peaches, walnuts, figs and almonds. Our soil improvement has been helped by the contents of the festival compost toilets and the ash bi-product of winter heating. For future events, we hope to be serving La Vall grown produce as well as our very own olives and olive oil.
At the Riba Rocks festival, waste separation is so important to us and we are so happy when we see our festival goers making the effort to separate waste. This means we can use the plates, cups and forks on our compost heaps, allow them to rot down during the year and then use the compost to improve La Vall’s soil.
