Do you have produce that is about to spoil before you get a chance to eat it? Are your favourite fruits and vegetables only available in one season, but you'd like to eat them all year round? This practical workshop in pickling and preserves will be led by Soghra Tavasoli and Deborah Ann Armstrong. Refreshments will be available during the course of the workshop with crackers and cheese at the end for sampling the recipes.
Places are limited so booking is essential!
When & Where
Woodlands Community Cafe
Woodlands Community Development Trust is a small local charity, whose work is having a big impact. Our Community Garden supports over 50 families to grow their own food and our volunteer training programmes have helped people learn new skills, reduce their isolation and further develop the garden as a therapeutic space. Our Community Café’s inclusive approach has enabled people from diverse backgrounds to work together collaboratively and enabled us to restore a sense of community and solidarity. Woodlands Community Garden has grown more than just food, it has grown a community. It is a vibrant outdoor community centre – a wonderfully therapeutic space that helps people to recover from the stresses and strains of every day life. Linked to the garden, our community café serves up more than just food. Pioneering an alternative approach to food banks that centres around a shared meal, we have reduced the stigma of accessing food aid and this year served up over 3600 healthy meals. The food at the café is shared and in that sharing everyone is made to feel equal.
