Growing and Cooking Skills
Gardens and green spaces are associated with improved mental and physical health and wellbeing. Gardening and growing food reduces social isolation, increases self-esteem and builds friendships and networks across the community. Building cooking skills increases confidence and provides the tools and knowledge to reduce household food costs and also food waste.
Whether you wish to broaden your cooking skills, learn new recipes or socialise in a relaxed informal environment, our sessions provide something for everyone and at every skill level.
