Shambala Mandala Shambala Mandala background


Our forays into utopia every year wouldn’t be what they are without our ongoing enquiry into our food system at Shambala and beyond. With dedicated venues like Garden O’ Feeden and Permaculture we explore the latest developments in culinary culture, growing knowledges and food futures.

We’ve been meat and fish free since 2016 –  to spark the conversation about how our diet shapes the world around us. We have a hefty list of standards for our traders to measure against, making sure Shambalans are getting the tastiest sustenance, that’s got good provenance and low impact written into the menu. In 2019, we went ‘Off Milk’, opting for hot drinks menu that champions lower impact milk alternatives instead.

Delve into our various campaigns, food standards etc below. Full lists of 2022 food traders including menus, allergens etc will drop later in Spring 2022 and will be hosted here – watch this space.
