Alain Job of Melting Pot Cafe at the Sycamore centre is also a street food pioneer. And with the help of University students (more on this later as Marsha from Secret Kitchen has also tapped into this resource) he has created his own brand of street food – Nkono. It is a banana skin cone with the Cameroon curry inside. A tasty, healthy, biodegradable bit of home-made fast food. Maybe look out for it at Glastonbury next year, and certainly at the Relaunch of Sneinton Market 10th Dec!!
Alain and Nkono are down at the Goose fair until Sunday – please go down and try this new product if you can! They are near the tram end of the main avenue in the Forest Rec that runs across the site from Mansfield over to Forest Rd West.

We think and hope you will agree that Stonebridge City Farm is a
treasure which belongs to the people of Nottingham. Entrance is free
and we would like to keep it that way but the farm needs the support
of the people to ensure its existence. For just £10 a year or two
hours voluntary work a year you can become a member of “Green Street –
Friends of the Farm” and play a part in protecting the farm. Details
of joining are attached and you can print the form, choose your option
and post it in to me or drop it off at the farm next time you are in.
Please also pass on to anybody who may be interested. The 2 hours
voluntary work contribution can vary depending on what you would like
to offer – from helping in the garden, maintenance work, baking or
helping at events, to give some ideas.
The half-price edible plants offer for Green Street is now finished.
Instead we will be providing limited monthly special offers and
Friends will be the first to hear of these offers. Workshops and
activities with limited numbers will be offered to Friends first.
Contact me if you have any questions and looking forward to seeing you
on the farm soon.
