Lean how to grow well, eat well and keep well.
This spring I'll be running a series of workshops, sharing urban gardening skills and growing tips. I'm a great believer that organic, fresh produce should become the basis of every diet, so not only will I be sharing cultivation skills, I'll be showing work-shoppers how to incorporate these delicious crops into a healthy and varied diet.
Friday March 10th Leaf Lore
The simplest of all to grow are leaves for salads. They take up very small space and can be grown all year round. You can’t eat enough of them for health and vigour.
Monday April 10th Growing Protein-rich Plants
Even the smallest plot can contribute to the protein content of our diets. This workshop explains how proteins contribute to a healthy diet and how you can grow vegetable protein in the smallest space, which is low in fat and high in fibre and vitamins.
Wednesday May 10th Flavouring Homemade Yogurt
Milk is one of our most precious resources and a rich source of calcium and vitamin D. In this workshop I will show you how easy it is to make a natural organic yogurt, using raw unpasteurised milk, and how simple it is to flavour it by using fruits and herbs from your own garden. Learn about growing for flavour and harvesting for freshness. I’ll be explaining why cultured whole milk products are now firmly back on the nutritional agenda.
Saturday June 10th Cheers!
Many people find that it’s what they drink, rather than what they eat that makes them gain weight. In this summery workshop we’ll be exploring growing and preserving sweet flavours that are a million miles away from shop-bought cocktails and sugary colas. (Mixes are always low calorie and generally non-alcoholic)
