The morning cooking sessions focus on how to cook fresh, healthy and well-balanced meals using seasonal home-grown organic fruit and veg. Participants also learn how to use surplus harvest to last all year by making chutneys, cordials and jams. The gardening sessions teach how to grow fruit and vegetables in pots on windowsills, in containers and on allotments. There will be workshops on how to sow seeds, take cuttings, look after mini-crops, how to harvest them and cook them. In addition, there will be lessons on planting flowers which are decorative, beneficial to wildlife or edible.
