the edible garden gets cooking
Now normally the idea of an afternoon at a steering group would not fill my heart with joy, but when we met today with Corinne, Sue and Fabio from Phakama to discuss the Edible Garden project we all came away full of the fun to come. And food too, lots of lovely food. We've got grand plans - a space has been identified in Mile End for the garden! - and we are already thinking about how to use the space, plan our growing, and what we need to do to get ready for a grand feast later in September 2012. And for a trial run, we shared a food preparation and testing session with our prospective chefs with some imaginative and delicious outcomes.
Many thanks to Annie, Clare, Heather and Ruth for coming along this afternoon and sharing their time, ideas, experience and all important tastebuds. We are really looking forward to working in partnership with Phakama, giving and gaining to make the Edible Garden a beautiful, productive space. There will be regular updates on the Edible Garden blog and plenty of opportunities to get involved with growing, cooking, crafting and story-telling.
Watch this getting-greener space.
