Building Bridges (community food project)

The cooking workshops at St Chads have now finished, though the videos and recipe cards can be found on this blog.

However we have recently been awarded some funding from the Local Community Fund to continue the workshops and develop the growing part of the project at the Windmill Hills Centre in Bensham. This will involve continuing to work with professional chef Rob Stewart and with The4Cs and their community allotment. We will start of with three events over the next three Saturdays (30 November, 7 & 14 December) and hopefully continue into the new year with some more. If you want to get involved and come along and learn some new cooking and growing ideas and be creative then come along. No experience necessary, children and families are very welcome. All welcome. Hope to see you there!Building Bridges_postcard_front
