One of our groups for the Edible Gardening Project is from a local school and the students have been off enjoying their summer holidays. Having found the experience so rewarding we decided to make the most of this available time and squeeze a few more groups in during the summer. We invited two local community groups for a visit.
YK200 were the first to come along on a very very wet day – we soldiered on however with a guided tour on the glasshouses followed by a ‘field kitchen’ cook up in the rain. Unperturbed the group also had a weed identification workshop.
Pilton Community Health Project also came to the Garden for a tour and to join in with our field kitchen. We shared a very pleasant afternoon with local families looking around the edible garden, harvesting, cooking and tasting some of the produce. We also sowed some seeds so that the families could start growing crops at home.
